Tasty Tuesday

I have said before that I'm cheap and easy, and that's the way I like things.

So this recipe for Corn Casserole works perfectly for our family.

1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 (8-ounce) package corn muffin mix
1 cup sour cream (I don't use precise measurements)
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Pepperjack cheese (could use cheddar or something else)
2 eggs
some onion
some garlic
a good helping of diced ham (or bacon, or cooked sausage, or other delicious pork product)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir together the 2 cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, cheese, eggs, and melted butter. Pour into a sprayed 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with a little more cheese. Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.

Seriously cheap.
Seriously easy.
Seriously good.

It even got a quirky little dance out of The Boy who is a super picky eater.

You know what I learned? I'll never be a food stylist or food photographer.
My apologies.
But I can make a decent meal, dangit!

This sounds wonderful! I really love corn {imagine if you will the movie Forest Gump and the whole encounter regarding shrimp but insert corn). Thanks for the great recipe...I like cheap, easy and good. : )

This looks quite tasty! I will have to remember this once fresh corn hits the farmers markets!

Oh, I love to make this, but I've never added ham. I could eat it all! I did add crab once. Thanks for sharing your awesome recipe!

Can I come to your house for dinner?

I'm not a cook and love whatever is quick and easy (20 mins or less). Thanks for sharing! :o)

Oh, this sounds like a recipe I got from my mother-in-law. It's always a hit when I make it. I've never added diced ham though, great idea and yes, cheap & good!

Beth said...

Sounds good! I'm going to try it. I do a similar recipe using hot dogs and it's called corn dog casserole. It's a hit with most of the family :)

The meal looks so tasty. Love that your son did a little dance. In our house we have the "chocolate milk" dance. But I'm the one who has to do it when I'm serving the milk. It started when they were about 2 or 3 and I'm still doing it 10 years later. Proves I'm a bit of a nutcase I guess!

I have made this recipe before for my family, but I have never thought of putting ham in it...sounds delicious! I will have to try it that way next time :)
