What Goes Into This Recipe
How to Make Corn Casserole
Mix melted butter with slightly beaten egg and sour cream.
Add chopped onions, both cans of corn, and the cornbread mix to the sour cream mixture. Stir gently.
Pour cornbread mixture into a casserole dish that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for an hour or until set and lightly browned.
Expert Tips for Making Corn Casserole
Let the melted butter cool before mixing it with the egg. If the butter is too hot, it could scramble the egg!
Use low fat sour cream in place of regular sour cream. I have made this recipe with both versions and haven't noticed a difference in taste or texture.
Generously coat the inside of the baking dish with cooking spray. This keeps the casserole from sticking to the sides and helps with clean up.
Cooking time can vary. This dish is ready when the top is set and the edges are golden brown. If the top is springy, it's ready. If it's pale, soft, looks wet, or mushy, give it more time to finish baking.
Use a round or square baking dish. I use a round 2.5 quart sized dish. You can use a square 8 inch by 8 inch dish, but baking time may need to be adjusted slightly.
Use "No Salt Added," or "Low Sodium" canned corn as needed or desired. I like to use one can of "No Salt Added" and one can of regular.
