Take-out Tuesday, Cheesy Corn Comfort Casserole

My thoughts have been drifting to Fall foods and comfort dishes

and this recipe is a way to enjoy corn

when the fresh summer sweet ears are no longer available

It’s loaded with corn and green onions in a creamy cheese sauce,

and topped with buttery crackers, shaved Parmesan

and crispy fried onions

Whisk the eggs in a large measuring cup

and then add the evaporated milk,

salt and pepper and stir to blend

Put the corn and onions into a deep 8″ x 8″ greased casserole dish

Stir together to mix

Add the grated cheeses

I used a combo of Asiago and Gruyère

Mix in the cheese

Now pour the milk/egg mixture slowly overall

Gently stir to make sure the sauce is evenly distributed

Crush the crackers~

you can do this right in their paper sleeve

with your fingers or with a rolling pin

Then mix the crumbs into the melted butter

Cover the top of the casserole with the buttery cracker bits

Top with shaved Parmesan, or grated Parmesan, Asiago or Swiss

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes

Top with fried onion pieces and return to oven for 3-5 minutes to heat

I like to use these Fresh Gourmet Crispy Onions

Look for them near the bottled salad dressings

Serve it up!

This makes 6 large or 8 smaller servings

    Hi Jenna, Summer corn is here and I get it fresh from the farmer. This sounds like a wonderful recipe to try to make corn taste even better than it is by itself. Can’t wait to try it. It is a meal in itself. I definitely had to pin it.

    This looks wonderful! I always want to Pin your recipe but I can never find the links. If you do put them into the post please make them where they are noticeable because I don’t have time to look thru the photos or text 10X over attempting to locate it.

    • I’m sorry you’re having trouble pinning my recipes, and not sure why…I don’t have any trouble pinning them and they are printable. There is also a Pin it button right in the recipe. I hope this helps
