My younger son used to refer to me as the casserole queen. Yep, that’s me! I love making casseroles even if I don’t eat them as much as I used to. They are great for holidays and potlucks and helpful to have in your collection if you want to use certain ingredients.
Taste of Home has some of the best casseroles in the business, and this recipe is no exception. A lot of their recipes are posted online now–at their own website here, and at other places like allrecipes.com. But I’m old-fashioned and still like to look through the cookbooks with all the pictures and their great presentation.
Corn ‘n’ Broccoli Bake is incredibly easy, uses only a few ingredients, is quite economical, and is a great side dish for potlucks, holidays and even something your own family will enjoy for regular dinners. The vegetables work really well together. I think you will enjoy making this tasty dish. Our family and company have sure enjoyed it!
When I first made this recipe in June 2012, I had just begun my food blog and my picture taking ability was very insufficient and outright deplorable. Such was the case with my pictures of this delicious recipe.

It’s a simple and satisfying way to use corn and broccoli. Substitute gluten-free crumbs if you’re gluten intolerant and oil for the butter if you’re lactose intolerant.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place saltine crackers in a zip lock bag. Crush with a rolling pin until cracker crumbs are very fine.
Place frozen broccoli in a mixing bowl. Add a can of creamed corn, dehydrated onions, egg, pepper and 1/4 cup crushed saltines.
Stir mixture together.
Pour into casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Mix remaining saltine crackers with butter and stir together for topping. Spread saltine crackers over top of casserole. Bake at 350 approximately 45 minutes to an hour or until done.
Remove from oven and serve.
Serve garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
