Cheesy Corn Casserole Recipe; Perfect for Holidays

     Does your family have a favorite dish for Holiday meals?  Our’s does, it is Cheesy Corn Casserole!  And it is delicious, seriously just yummy yummy goodness!  It makes me excited for Holiday dinners.

     One reason I love this dish, is the simplicity.  It is easy to make, and can be cooked in the slow cooked or the oven.  Who does not love that!?!  I love this baked in the oven, but I cook it in a crock pot more often than not, because our oven is always full on big dinner days.  Until this year.  :)  This year I am putting a ham in the crock pot for thanksgiving, which means I can have a golden delicious corn casserole!

     This photo (above) is from 2 weeks ago, I made it in the crockpot.  It is amazing, the food not the photo.  :)  I do not know why I always manage to take terrible photos of my favorite side dish!  and before you ask, Yes I have a special serving dish, shaped like corn for my corn casserole.  Why?  Because I am Jessi and thats just how I do things!

Corn Casserole:

  • 2 cans of whole kernel corn.  (drain the juice out of 1)
  • 2 cans of creamed corn
  • 2 cups of elbow noodles – DRY do not cook these ahead of time
  • 1/2 stick of butter cubed
  • 1/2 medium onion, obliterated – Yes that is my very technical term for how my grandma use to put half an onion with a quarter cup of water into her blender for this dish!  I use a food processor and zero water.
  • 2 cups (ish) of velveeta, yes you can use other types of cheese but velveeta makes it awesome
  • 1 Tbs black pepper
  • 2 Tbs garlic powder

     Crockpot:  Put everything in the crockpot and mix, turn on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2 hours and serve.
Oven:  Mix all ingredients (minus cheese) into a bowl and place in a baking dish.  I use a big glass casserole pan. Then cube the cheese and spread it evenly around the dish – smooshing it into the corn awesomeness.  Bake at 350 (because everything bakes at 350 in my world) for 15 minutes.  Stirr – because now your cheese has melted and you can distribute it around.  Bake another 45ish minutes until the edges just turn to golden.

Eat!

     I have yet to meet a person who did not like this.  Well I suppose if you disliked cheese and corn, that could be a problem, but other than that, its a win!

  1. That looks so good! I make something similar with croutons but didn't make it for Thanksgiving this year. We had green bean casserole and it wasn't as big of a hit as the corn casserole. I'm going back to that for Christmas! 😉

  2. I LOVE Cheesey corn, it is such a delicious treat! Thanks for sharing your version of the recipe!
