Creamed Corn Casserole

         I remember being a kid and this was made one weekend for a family dinner on Sunday. We all went absolutely insane over this. It has taken me years to be able to duplicate this recipe. It was one of those secret recipes that could not be shared. The recipe seems pretty basic, a little different than my mom’s recipe.

But, I truly tried. I had literally forgotten about this recipe until it was too late to try and get her to share it with me again.

            Some of you may say that Creamy Corn Casserole is the same as Corn pudding. I would have to differ with you on that. Corn pudding is more on the thinner side of things. A casserole is thick and stays together.

            This can be served as a special treat for the holidays or even year round. Do not forget to share this classic recipe. I did not get it in time so I had to make it time and time again to get it as close as this.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            What corn should I use?

I admit, I use both creamed corn and whole kernel corn that has been drained. You will need one can of each, more if you are doubling the recipe.

            Do I have to use eggs?

Eggs are what binds this all together to make it the tasty casserole that it is.

            Can I make this in my crock pot?

You definitely can. There is a version for the crock pot, please look it up. You will certainly enjoy it just as much!

            Should I use fresh or frozen corn?

I have only used fresh corn, and I believe that is all my mother used also. Canned corn is good, but you cannot beat the taste of fresh corn!
