YUMMY CORN CASSEROLE

This Yummy Corn Casserole makes a great side dish for any meal.  This dish is wonderful for holidays both summer and winter and great for picnics or buffets.  Your family and guests will love this and ask for more.

Corn casserole with crispy fried onions is delicious.

2 1/2 cups frozen corn

1 (14.75 ounce) can creamed corn

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened (I just put mine in the microwave for about 1 minute to soften)

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

4 tablespoons butter, divided

1/2 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup chopped green or red peppers

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Pinch cayenne or black pepper (Optional)

1 cup of crispy fried onions, divided

 

Brown onion and green or red peppers in skillet in one tablespoon of the butter.  Spray a 2 quart or larger baking dish with cooking spray,  combine the frozen corn, creamed corn, cream cheese, green chilis, the other 3 tablespoons butter (melted), green onion, green or red peppers, salt, paprika and cayenne or black pepper.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Remove and stir 1/4 cup of the crispy fried onions into the casserole.  Add the remaining onions on top and bake for 20 more minutes or until onions are golden brown.  Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Note:  You could add meat to this dish and make it a meal.  Cooked meat like smoked sausage, chicken, turkey or ham would all be good in this dish. Bacon would be good, too.

  1. This looks delicious! I do have a question though about the fried onions… It says to use 1 cup of crispy fried onions in the ingredient list. Then in the directions it states to stir 1 cup of the crispy fried onions into the casserole and add the remaining onions on top. How much crispy fried onion should be used in total then? I am thinking there may be a typo in either the ingredient list or the directions?

    1. Thank you, Karen, for bring this to our attention. The recipe has been corrected. It is 1 cup of onions. Put 1/4 in the casserole and 3/4 on top.

      1. I finally made this recipe and it was delicious! I will definitely be having this corn again for supper in the future.5 stars

  2. My family likes spicy, so I mixed in 1/2 can of chopped jalapenos and sprinkled 1/4 c of dried jalapenos over the top. Family and guests really liked it to the bottom of the 0x13 bake dish!5 stars

  4. My corn cass. Is 1 can cream corn &1 can whole kernel Corn, box of Jiffy corn breard& stick PC butter. Drain water from corn & mix both cans of corn then add melted butter& stir. Then mix jiffy corn bread as told on box & pour over corn mixture& bake till C.B. Is brown (30) min. Don’t stir just pour batter over corn mix! Easy& good! U can add whatever u like to it!

    1. I have not tried freezing it ahead of time. The only thing I can think of that would not work is the onions might become soggy. Guess you could add them later.

  5. Made this as a side dish to our ribeyes for my man and I…he loved it and even told his Mom who’s big into cooking that I would have to share the recipe with her!
