Are you ready to impress your guests with a mouthwatering corn casserole that is perfect for any holiday gathering? Look no further, because I have a recipe that will make you the star of the show! This light and airy dish will have everyone reaching for seconds.
The Secret Ingredient: Frozen Corn
Forget about canned corn – we’re using frozen corn for maximum flavor. Begin by blending one bag of frozen corn until smooth. Reserve the other bag to stir in later, so you can enjoy the texture of the kernel corn.
The Magic of Eggs and Cream
To make this casserole extra delicious and fluffy, we’re adding four eggs, three-quarters cup of whole milk, and a cup of heavy cream. The eggs give it the much-needed lightness, while the heavy cream adds richness and structure. And let’s not forget a half stick of melted butter for that indulgent touch. Don’t worry, we’ll work it off in January!
Sweet and Savory Flavors
Enhance the flavors with a touch of sweetness by adding a third of a cup of sugar. Just enough to give it a cornbread-like taste. To balance the sweetness, sprinkle in a teaspoon and a half of kosher salt.
Mixing It All Together
Blend the corn puree with a mixture of one-third cup of all-purpose flour and a teaspoon of baking powder. Whisk until everything is combined. Now, it’s time to add some extra flair to our casserole. Stir in freshly snipped chives for a burst of freshness, and season with a sprinkle of freshly cracked pepper. Finally, fold in the second bag of frozen corn for that extra texture.
Bake to Golden Perfection
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a nine by 12 casserole dish and pour the batter into it. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the casserole is beautifully golden brown and baked through. You’ll know it’s done when it’s slightly puffed up and has a light and airy texture – just like biting into a cloud!
Prep Ahead for Thanksgiving Ease
Here’s a pro tip: prepare the batter the day before Thanksgiving and refrigerate it. When it’s time to heat up your side dishes, simply pop the corn casserole in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit alongside your resting turkey. This way, you’ll have a perfectly warm and delicious dish ready to serve with minimal effort.
So there you have it – a corn casserole recipe without using any Jiffy Mix. With basic ingredients and frozen vegetables, it’s both economical and scrumptious. Impress your friends and family this holiday season with this easy-to-make crowd-pleaser.
