Baked Corn

September 24, 2012Teresa

Baked Corn is another Corn Casserole from my delightful collection of corn recipes. This one is different from most corn casserole recipes since it doesn’t use Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. After all, why collect corn recipes that are all the same, right? This one uses creamed corn in the base, is topped with cheddar cheese and then uses sautéed saltine crackers on top. It’s really quick, easy and an economical way to make corn. It’s a great holiday or company recipe, too.

I got the recipe from Elizabeth Jones when I worked at Colonial Hills Baptist Church for a couple of months during 1999. She had brought it to some kind of senior adult luncheon and the staff were allowed to go and eat when everyone else was finished. I tasted this recipe and had to have it! The recipe is also included in the Colonial Hills church cookbook I purchased during the short time I worked there.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy corn recipe for holidays, company gatherings, or just family dinners, Baked Corn is a good recipe to get you started. I served this countless times for company over the years and everyone always enjoys it. Try it yourself and you’ll see what I mean.

When I first made this recipe and posted it in September 2012, I didn’t have a clue about taking decent pictures. Plus, I had a poor quality iPhone 3 for my camera. The pictures were dark, blurry, grainy, and extremely unappealing.

But since this is one of our favorite casserole recipes for the holidays I decided to remake this recipe last week (October 2014), for friends who had just had a baby and retook the pictures. I think you will find these pictures much clearer and more delectable than the first ones. After all, 2 1/2 years of food blogging does teach one a few new tricks! 🙂 Enjoy.
