  • Two eggs, beaten well
  • One quarter cup of softened butter (not butter or margarine spread)
  • One teaspoon of vanilla
  • One half cup of sharp cheddar cheese, grated.
  • Eight by eight glass baking dish

Mixing and Baking the Casserole

  1. Open the two cans of creamed corn and pour into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add the third cup of milk, two tablespoons of sugar, four tablespoons of cornmeal, and two beaten eggs. Mix together with hand mixer or with a wooden spoon, just until combined. Add the quarter cup of butter and teaspoon of vanilla. Beat well, but do not let mixture become frothy.
  2. Grease the eight by eight glass baking dish and pour the casserole ingredients into it. The mixture should be slightly soupy. If it is too thick, add another tablespoon of milk to the mix.
  3. Bake in a three hundred and fifty degree oven for one hour, until browned around the edges and slightly browned in the middle. Check on the casserole the last fifteen minutes and cover with foil if casserole seems to be getting too brown. When sufficiently done, remove casserole from the oven.

Adding the Cheese

Sprinkle the top of the casserole with the grated sharp cheddar cheese. Allow the casserole to cool approximately fifteen minutes before serving.

Serving the Casserole

Easy Breakfast Meal

Creamed Corn Casserole can easily convert to a delicious breakfast meal by omitting the cheese and adding additional sugar to the mixture. One half cup of sugar will give the casserole the perfect sweetness for a true breakfast treat.
