Want to add in some additional ingredients? Go for it! While this recipe already calls for shredded cheddar cheese, you could also add in bacon, green chiles, sweet peppers, jalapeños, green onions, or fresh herbs. If you want to make a lighter, fluffier corn casserole you can add two eggs to the ingredients.
If you don’t want to turn on your oven, or you need the space for other dishes, you can also make corn casserole in a Crock-Pot. Pour ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on high for 2 hours, or on low for 4 hours.
