Corn Casserole {A Perfect Side Dish for Your Easter Ham!}

This post brought to you by Sam's Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hello, friends!  I'm always curious to hear what people eat for the holidays.  We pretty much stick to the traditionals -- Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas roast beef, and Easter ham.  I almost always make cheesy potatoes to go with my ham, but this year  I have found a yummy new recipe that pairs perfectly with ham for a nice spring dinner.  At least it is new to me -- Corn Casserole.  I have a few kids who don't love potatoes, but corn is always a favorite of everyone.  Cheesy, creamy corn is sure to become a classic in this house!



Here is where the idea came from:



Looks good, right?  Sam's Club has several yummy-looking recipes on their website to help you Celebrate Spring, but after I saw the Corn Casserole I was sold.  I knew that would be just the thing to give our boring old Easter dinner some new life.  It gets bonus points in my book for being super easy, and made from inexpensive ingredients that I always keep in my refrigerator and pantry, like Del Monte® canned Sweet Corn.

What I really loved about this dish was that I could take the basic recipe and customize it for my family by adding a few extra ingredients.

This time I added crumbled buttery crackers on top to give it a yummy crust, but next time I think I will throw in a can of diced green chiles, too, for a little kick.

Corn Casserole

3 C. shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 C. milk
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2/3 C. sliced green onions
1 tsp. bottled hot sauce
4 cans Del Monte® Whole Kernel Corn, well-drained
1 1/2 C. crackers, finely crushed

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix  shredded cheddar cheese, flour and pepper in a bowl and set aside.
Stir together the milk, softened cream cheese, 1/3 cup of the green onions and the hot sauce in a 9” x 13” pan. Dump in the corn and shredded cheese mixture, then stir well to blend evenly.  This would also be a great time to add green chiles or diced red peppers, if you want them. Bake for 30 minutes.  {The original recipe said to cover it, but I didn't and it was great.

Sprinkle on the remaining 1/3 cup of green onions, and cracker crumbs or other optional toppings, if desired. Bake 5 minutes longer.  Allow to sit for about 5 minutes before serving for the casserole to set up some.

All I need now is a batch of warm home made rolls, maybe a green salad, and some deviled eggs to round out the perfect Easter dinner.  Mmmmm.  I'm going to make my family so happy this weekend!  Stay tuned later this week for a delicious, light and fruity dessert recipe, too.


I’ll be linking up to some of my favorite link parties.  Come and check them out!

Happy Easter, friends!
