Holiday Corn Casserole is my own version of a holiday classic my mom made when I was growing up. The very first year she made it, it became one of my all-time favorite holiday dishes. I looked forward to it every year!
If you’re like me, and a lot of other people, you and your family love corn too! Even though I love it, corn has also been the subject of many debates between my children and I. Most of my kids will tell you that they believe that corn is a vegetable. However, to be accurate, in my opinion, corn is a starchy vegetable. I say this because I believe it’s more starch than vegetable due to the high content of starch corn contains. But whether you believe it’s a vegetable or a starch, Holiday Corn Casserole is DELICIOUS!!
And you don’t have to have a boxed cornbread mix to create this classic holiday recipe! Add a little corn meal with a little flour and a little baking powder and soda with salt and you’ve got the start of Holiday Corn Casserole! Oh, and, by the way, did I mention that this recipe is really easy, too? Well, if I didn’t, please note that Holiday Corn Casserole is REALLY EASY, too!
Adding fresh, sauteed onion and bell pepper not only enhances the colors of Holiday Corn Casserole, they bring a whole new depth of flavor to this already delicious dish!
The sweet, peppery aroma of Holiday Corn Casserole baking in the oven adds to the level of anticipation as you and your family gather for the Thanksgiving meal.
Once the dry ingredients are whisked together, add the whole kernel corn, cream style corn, lightly beaten eggs and sour cream…
Then add the delicious, sauteed onion and bell pepper. Stir briefly to combine and then pour mixture into a greased 8″x 8″ baking pan.
Bake in a 375’F oven (preheated of course) for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the casserole comes out clean.
Top with additional butter, if desire! Then serve immediately and ENJOY!!! Holiday Corn Casserole is a delicious and easy dish to prepare for holiday meals or any time of the week you feel like making a special corn dish for your family! Have a great week! Lisa 🙂
