I thought I posted this a while back, but I guess I didn’t get around too it. I wanted to share it, because it looks simple, but its soooo gooooood!! I’ll be making this again for the holiday season. My dad had made me some homemade bacon so I used that in there, but store bought will work just as well.
Corn Casserole with Cheese & Bacon
(Adapted from South in Your Mouth)
2 12-oz. bags frozen steam-in-the-bag corn, thawed (or 4 1/2 cups fresh)
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons butter, melted
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)
4 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons chopped chives
Add 2 cups of corn, eggs, flour, sugar, cayenne and butter to a blender or food processor and pulse 3-4 times to mix well and cream corn.
Pour mixture into a medium bowl. Add remaining corn, 3/4 of the cheese, bacon and chives and stir well.
Pour mixture into a greased 2-quart shallow baking dish then sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around edges.
Makes approximately 8 servings.
