INSTRUCTIONS:

1st Step

To start, prepare your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Prepare a 9-by-13-inch baking dish by greasing it well.

2nd Step

In a large bowl, combine the cream-style corn and the drained whole-kernel corn. The dish benefits from the texture and creaminess brought by the two types of corn.

3rd Step

Whisk in the melted butter and then stir in the sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. The casserole benefits from the thick and creamy basis provided by these components.

4th Step

Mix in the cornbread mix gradually. In addition to its thickening purpose, this ingredient gives the dish the familiar cornmeal taste and texture.

5th Step

In a separate dish, beat the eggs, and then add them to the rest of the ingredients. This action strengthens the casserole by binding the components together.

6th Step

Add some salt and pepper to taste to the mixture. Keep in mind the sweetness of the corn when deciding how much spice to add. The mixed ingredients should be poured into the prepared baking dish and spread out evenly.

7th Step

Bake for 45-50 minutes in a preheated oven, or until the top is a gorgeous golden brown and the casserole is set.

8th Step

To add a new dimension of taste and aesthetic appeal to the dish, you may top it with chopped green onions or crispy bacon pieces.

9th Step

Before serving, let the Corn Casserole come to room temperature if possible. It complements many different entrees and is likely to be a success at any social gathering.
