Throw Back Thursday – Corn and Bacon Casserole

Lori first posted this delicious tasting recipe in November, 2012.  We are bringing it back so you can change up the sides at your holiday feast!  YUM!  Enjoy! ~ Heather

I was looking for a new recipe to try this holiday season. I’m a stuffing lover, I absolutely love my homemade stuffing, the rest of my family however are not fans of stuffing in general. To appeal to the masses, I hit the internet and stumbled on a Paula Deen recipe for Corn Casserole. Immediately, I knew it would be delish, Paula doesn’t mess around! I’ve honestly never made one her recipes that I didn’t enjoy. Plus this recipe is extremely easy and can be made ahead of time and reheated, which is a prerequisite for side dishes for large holiday meals that I’m preparing.

I did take some liberties and jazzed up the recipe just a bit (added bacon heeheehee), you can too, there are lots of possibilities for this recipe. Don’t expect the consistency to be like cornbread though, it has more of a soft texture which I found really yummy, as did family and guests.  This recipe can easily be doubled also, just double all ingredients, use a 9×13 baking dish and bake for approximately 80 minutes.
