Corn & Bacon Casserole is a deliciously easy side dish that is perfect for the holiday season. Great for big crowds, you can simply increase the quantity.
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, because Paula doesn’t mess around! I’ve honestly never made one her recipes that I didn’t enjoy, secretly I think I would have made a fabulous Southern girl, but alas I’m in Michigan. Bonus, 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.
