Quick & Easy Corn Bake Casserole Recipe

QUICK & EASY CORN BAKE CASSEROLE RECIPE

Corn Bake Casserole is a quick and easy dish that can be combined together ahead of time and put in the refrigerator.  Fluffy, creamy, rich, and delicious a favorite of kids. It is the second favorite to the green bean casserole and we now make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Corn Bake Casserole is the new side dish for our family starting and around 1995. Close friends bring this dish to dinners and our monthly card parties and it has been a hit.

This dish is not as connected to the Thanksgiving meal as the traditional green bean casserole, so it is a perfect non-holiday side dish for any large get together where you have a lot of people to feed. Take it to any potluck and it will disappear.

Family Traditions for Thanksgiving

When I was a little girl, we went to my Aunt Lois’s house almost every Thanksgiving. My grandmother, my mother’s mother, lived with Aunt Lois so it was a natural trip to make to visit my grandmother and see my mother’s sister.  As my Uncle Louis wasn’t fond of turkey, we always had a  ham for dinner.  It was traditional to have two main dishes at Aunt Lois’s home.  

In the ’50s and ’60s,  it was traditional for the first Christmas TV shows started after Thanksgiving dinner.  My Dad would always make sure we were home in time to watch The first Christmas variety show and the first Christmas cartoons.  My favorite was Charlie Brown’s Christmas. 

As when I was a child, our family start the day after Thanksgiving the mad rush to get all the Christmas decorations sorted and decorated around the house.  After years of work we now have more vacation and almost always take Monday off also so that we can get as much done as possible this first weekend.

Tips for Successful Side Dishes

The trick to having a successful and fun Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for the host is to start side dishes like this the day before.  This quick & easy corn bake casserole recipe is one that is great for make-ahead preparation.

Purchase all your ingredients the weekend before as they have a long shelf life.  Thaw the frozen corn the night before or when you go to mix the recipe it freezes up (believe me I have done this).  Mix all together, put in your favorite casserole dish, cover with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  

An hour and a half before you want to eat take off the cover and put in the oven at 350° for 90 minutes.  Check the top to make sure the middle is cooked depending on your oven and how many other cold dishes are in the oven at the same time.  If this dish is alone in the oven take 60 minutes.
