Corny Bacon Casserole
This fun Corny Bacon Casserole is so scrumptious. It’s loaded with corn and bacon–two of my favorite foods. 🙂 It’s relatively easy to whip up. It’s a great side dish for holiday menus like Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.
Back in January, one of our church elder’s wives ended up in the hospital. It started with flu-type symptoms and ended up turning into severe pneumonia. She was hospitalized for over a week and out of work for three weeks when she was re-admitted to the hospital! This time the lining of the lungs was infected. The poor gal could not catch a break.
I took them a meal that included Spaghetti Pizza Bake, Olive Garden Salad Dressing Copycat Recipe, Parsley Herb Bread, Banana Blondies and this tasty dish. She texted me later that night to tell me how much they loved everything. She said she really liked the corn because “it had all that bacon on it!”
I was a little concerned with the texture of this casserole when I spread it into the baking dish. It has a texture unlike any casserole I’ve ever made before. But it actually cooked up great. The savory flavors are wonderful. If you need to make this recipe gluten free, you can easily swap out the all-purpose flour for GF flour, too.
Corny Bacon Casserole is one of those recipes you’re probably going to want on your regular menu plan. It literally will work with any kind of main dish. You can also use any kind of corn–fresh, frozen or canned. Give this recipe a try the next time you get the urge for a little corn with your bacon. 🙂

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Cut bacon into thin strips. Fry over medium heat until crisp.
Remove bacon to paper towel-lined plate to drain. Set aside.
Remove all but two tablespoons bacon grease. Add onions and fry until tender – a minute or two. Add garlic and saute for one minute longer.
Add flour, salt and pepper.
Stir to combine. Mixture will begin to bubble. Cook and stir one minute.
Remove skillet from heat. Add sour cream.
Stir until smooth.
Add corn, parsley and half of the bacon.
Stir well to combine.
Spray a small casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread corn mixture into prepared dish.
Sprinkle remaining half of the bacon on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Garnish with fresh chives before serving.
I served Corny Bacon Casserole with Spaghetti Pizza Bake.
