WHADDA WE EATIN' WEDNESDAY!!! Easy Corn Casserole recipe!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

How are you doing today?  I hope better than I am...I'm sick, and I'm just feeling miserable.  It's a sinus infection that I seem to get a couple times a year, and was just recently thinking that it had been a while since I'd been sick...and then!  POW!  

However, I didn't want to miss out on sharing this yummy recipe with you.  This is great for potlucks, or chili suppers and is super yummy!


I got the recipe here.  The "Taste of Home" recipe site and cookbooks are wonderful.  I was first introduced to them when my mom got me one of their "best recipes of 1999" cookbook...they had so many great recipes in there!  

I thought this was the same recipe for corn casserole that my mom makes and that I love, but this one is different....still yummy, though.   This recipe was submitted by a user of the site, and it was so easy to make that I knew I had to try you know, I'm ALL ABOUT EASY!

Without further ado, on to the recipe!  Here's what you'll need...

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) French onion dip
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  •  2 cans of chicken breast or 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded/chopped (Optional- We did add this to make it a meal in itself, but it is not necessary)

    In a large bowl, beat the eggs, dip, butter, corn bread mix, salt and pepper until combined. Stir in the corn (and chicken if you're using it).

    Pour into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. 

    This recipe will serve 8-10 people....We ended up having leftovers which reheated fine the next day!

    The verdict??  A hit with the adults...a miss with the kids. 
    I served this twice...once for a meal with just our family, and once at a Memorial Day BBQ we had on Sunday.  It was the same at both events...the adults liked it, the kids did NOT!  lol
    Sooo...if you're going to a potluck with mostly adults, this might be a good option to bring...a kid's party with mostly kids?  I might make something else...haha!
    Hope you enjoyed this WHADDA WE EATIN' WEDNESDAY!  Come on back tomorrow (Thursday) at 8pm ET and post your OWN recipes, tablescapes, DIY's, home d├ęcor....basically YOUR creativity on our FESTIVE FRIDAY FIESTA Link party....I'd love to see what YOU'RE up to!  

    Have a great week!



    1. Seriously? The kids didn't care for it? Well...that' just makes more for me!!!! :-) Maybe if you put something colorful in there like diced red and green peppers...think they'd go for it then? I don't know. Kids are weird. :-)

      My Mom recently made corn pudding. She remembered that her Grandmother used to make it and so she gave it a try. I liked it. I could have used a little more flavoring, but overall it was pretty tasty. Yours turned out really pretty!

      1. That's what we said too....haha...although they did have to eat it when I served it to them for dinner, but they didn't take any on BBQ day...haha! Yes, I have two very picky kids when it comes to food, so I am usually very surprised when they both like something...usually it's one or the other...but in this case, neither of them liked it. My hubby and I really liked it, though...and we ate several pieces! =D
