Corn Casserole


CORN CASSEROLE
1/4 stick butter
1/4 C flour
1 C chicken stock
1/2 C milk
1/2 C sour cream
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 C frozen corn kernels
2 serrano peppers, chopped
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
1 C french-fried onions
Salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet over medium high heat, melt butter.  Whisk in the flour and then pour in the chicken stock.  Cook and whisk until bubbly and thickened.  Mix the milk, chicken stock mixture, sour cream, eggs, serranos, and cornbread mix together in a bowl.  Stir in the corn kernels and the cheese and serranos.  Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour the corn mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan.  Sprinkle the french-fried onions over the top and cover with foil.
Bake 30 minutes or until set.  Remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the onions are browned.

    1. Thank you for asking! That's the amount I used, but you can for sure use more if you like.

    1. I haven't, but you sure could double it if you want.

    2. I did double it and baked it for 1 hour 15 minutes in a large casserole dish. I also added smoked gouda with the cheddar, 1 sauted onion, and 1/2 pound crumbled bacon. GREAT!!! Thank you...this recipe is better than my grandma's baked corn.

    6. I also added the bacon, and sauteed a diced up onion in the bacon grease but I took it even a step further and roasted the frozen corn in the onion/bacon grease and wow did it give that corn a whole 'nother flavor! really really good!

  11. Can you make this ahead and put it in the oven later?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi, PG! That's a great question. I've never tried making it ahead, but I don't see any reason why you can't. I'm betting (don't quote me) that you can freeze it before baking too. Please let me know if you try that and how it works!

  12. The Serrano peppers I do not have. I was wondering if you could use jalepenos. I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be a "hot" dish. Maybe I should leave the peppers out altogether. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can absolutely substitute jalapenos for the serranos. We eat a lot of spicy food here, and that is just a preference. They can be left out if you're cooking for people who don't like spicy. It's not necessary for the dish. Enjoy!

  13. Can you use a substitution for the chicken stock? (I'm a vegetarian but this looks so good!) But I cant eat chicken stock. Is there a vegetarian substituion for that??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you have a favorite vegetable stock, you could absolutely use that, or you could use all milk. Hope you enjoy it!

  14. This was PHENOMENAL!!! The serrano peppers add just enough whang...and we're wimps...I used 1 1/2 instead of 2 cuz I chickened out wondering if my Grand Dolls would like it. Two would not be too much. Perfect recipe! Thanks for sharing! Will DEF make again...5 stars

    1. You sure can, Serena! You will just need to drain it and use the same measurements. Enjoy!

  16. Hands down the best dish I've eaten in a really really long time! I had to bake for 10 more minutes, but I also have a weird oven. The serrano peppers were perfect! Can't wait to make it again and again and again!
