Cheesy Corn Casserole Recipe
The BEST side dish for Thanksgiving dinner!
Every year Thanksgiving is a HUGE production at my grandma’s house! There’s enough food to feed the entire neighborhood and their families….to say my mom and grandma go overboard is a bit of an understatement. I remember as a kid, we would have about 30 people come through my grandma’s house for Thanksgiving. All my Aunts and Uncles would be there, cousins would stop by to mingle and have a plate or two, neighbors would drop by, etc. We always had ham, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, deviled eggs, butter peas, sweet potato casserole, green beans, black eyed peas, squash, potato salad, and this delicious corn casserole. Not to mention all of the yummy desserts for afterwards!
When grandma makes this casserole she used to not add the cheese but Hubs’ LOVES cheese and we decided why not add some Sargento Shredded Cheese to top it off. I chose to add some cheddar jack because I knew it would add a ton of flavor….cheddar jack is my go to casserole cheese because it makes everything even more delicious. Well, let me tell you…adding some delicious Sargento Cheddar Jack shredded cheese to my grandma’s corn casserole recipe made it even more incredible.
Now, I know what you’re thinking……cheese on corn?! Um, YES…..it is AWESOME! You have to give it a try just once and you’ll be hooked!
Anyway, this cheesy corn casserole recipe is not just for Thanksgiving. I make it throughout the year as well because it’s a simple dish that I can easily throw together….in fact….sometimes I add some cooked chicken so that it’s a one dish meal during the week. Whenever I make this corn casserole recipe we rarely have any leftovers….but when we do they heat up even better the next day!
