Corn Casserole is the answer. But what was the question?

When preparing a meal, it can sometimes be those side dishes that throw you.  You are tired of the same potatoes, rice, or regular old vegetable.  You want something a bit…different.  But what?

Corn Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 16 ounce cans Yellow Cream-style Corn
  • 1 – 4 ounce can Chopped Green Chilies, Drained
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Finely Chopped Onion
  • 1 cup Milk   
  • 2 large Eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1- 1/2 teaspoons Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. 

In a medium-size bowl, combine cornmeal and remaining ingredients.  Stir cornmeal mixture into the liquid mixture. 

Pour into a lightly greased 11”x7”x1-1/2” baking dish (I use a 9”x9”x2” square pan, and increase the baking time by approximately 10 to 15 minutes).  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. 

*If you double the recipe, pour ingredients into a 13x9x2 pan.  Increase baking time slightly (approximately 15 to 20 minutes), checking for doneness using the knife method after approximately 60 minutes.
