Quick and Easy, Cheesy Corn Casserole

This recipe actually comes from my sister in law, Teresa. We went to visit family out of state for the Thanksgiving holiday a few years ago and it was one of the dishes on the table. This quick and easy, cheesy corn casserole was a hit with my family!

Whenever my extended family gets together, cooking is ALWAYS on the agenda. We all love to prepare food and try new recipes and I think that it brings all of us great joy to cook for the ones that we love.

Maybe it’s our love language?

That specific Thanksgiving celebration was a little different because not all of the family could make it to my mom’s house. We all live in different states and for that reason family gatherings require quite a bit of planning and effort. Just a few short years earlier we had lost my step-dad to cancer and so the holidays had already lost a little bit of luster. That loss coupled with the extensive traveling would mean that this Thanksgiving would be smaller.

I traveled about 6 hours to my mom’s house and one of my brothers, that lives in the same city, brought his family over for the celebration. Even though there were only 8 of us, instead of 17, the spread on the table was still grandiose!

I very quickly noticed that my children, who are very picky eaters, seemed to be enjoying the corn casserole that their aunt Teresa had placed on the table. Not only did they finish their helping but they even asked for seconds! That was all I needed to see in order to know that this recipe would be making its way into my home.

Not only did my children enjoy it, but I LOVED it as well! What’s not to love? The outside is slightly crispy and it’s filled with cheese, corn, and a slight tang from the sour cream. It is absolutely perfect!

    Really delicious! Some people don’t like to read comments using substitutions, but since Jessie made a substitution, I think my own is fair. I used southwestern style corn instead of plain. I always substitute plain fat free Greek yogurt for sour cream because it doesn’t add any fat and it does add protein. The taste is the same as using sour cream in recipes and it bakes the same. I also used fat free shredded cheese. Baked it in a 9″x13″ Pyrex pan.
