Creamy Corn Casserole

What are your favorite holiday recipes? Here is an easy side dish recipe for Creamy Corn Casserole to make this Thanksgiving.

Creamy Corn Casserole RecipeBefore I started going with Brian to Thanksgiving at my in-laws, I have never really thought about how different families have special dishes that they always serve at their Thanksgiving dinner. Growing up, my family had its own traditions and my mom made the dishes we loved including some of the ones that she grew up having. One of the things that my mother-in-law always makes is corn casserole or corn pudding. I had never even heard of a corn casserole before that first Thanksgiving with my in-laws and am so happy that they introduced me to this delicious Thanksgiving side dish.

This is week 4 of the Holiday Progressive Dinner and this week’s wonderful sponsor is Rachael Ray Oven-to-Table Stoneware from My contribution to the menu is Creamy Corn Casserole inspired by Thanksgiving with my in-laws but before I get to the recipe, I want to tell you about this week’s giveaway!

Rachel_Ray_Oven_To_Table_StonewareOne person will win a set of Rachael Ray Oven-to-Table Stoneware that includes 2 oval bakers and  a  3.5 quart covered casserole! I got to try out the 3.5 quart covered casserole and I love everything about it! I like the bright cheerful color, the large size, the comfortable handles, the cover and the fact that I can bake in and serve from the same dish. It feels heavy duty and durable.

Rachel Ray StonewareThe recipe I made doesn’t need to be covered while cooking but having the lid available is a bonus when cooking things like turkey or pot roast. The cover is also helpful for those times when you want to bring a dish to a party. You can prepare it at home, put the lid on to transport it and serve it right out of the same pan. It is safe to use in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer. It can be used in the oven up to 500 degrees! The dish is glazed and non-porous. Stoneware helps to cook food evenly. Want to try out some of the Rachael Ray Stoneware for yourself? Enter the giveaway below!

Creamy Cornbread RecipeTo make the creamy corn casserole, beat softened cream cheese in a large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs, onion powder, black pepper, salt and sugar. Blend in cornbread mix, cheddar cheese, butter and milk. Stir in cream-style corn and sweet corn.

  1. Jen says

    This recipe looks yummy! I will be baking it tomorrow for our family thanksgiving! Can I prepare it tonight and throw it in the oven tomorrow? Can’t wait to try it :).

    • Tonia says

      Hi Jen,
      I have never tried making it ahead of time but from what I’ve read, preparing it ahead of time might cause it to not rise as well. I think you would be better off baking it ahead of time and then heating it before serving. I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture but it has a little bit of a crust on the top and reheating in the oven might help make the top crispy again. I’ve reheated leftovers in the microwave and they were delicious so that would work too. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Tonia says

      The Rachael Ray dish I used is a 3.5 quart size that measures 11 x 7 x 2 1/2. If you don’t have the same dish, you can use a 9×13. Happy Thanksgiving! ~Tonia

  2. Rachel says

    Question for Tonia (the gunny sack lady): I am going to make this for thanksgiving. I was wondering if this cheesy corn casserole will do well if I make it the day before and bake it on the next day.

  3. Cindy A. says

    Thank you so much for offering such a lovely and generous giveaway. I would love to try any of the casserole bakers!

  4. Susan R. says

    I intend to try your in-laws’ Corn Casserole on Thanksgiving. It sounds delicious, and looks so nice in its red dish.

  5. Amanda Christensen says

    I would love to try the 3.5 quart covered rectangular casserole in red. It would look so pretty on my Christmas table!

  6. Whitney Pulliam says

    My mom makes a similar recipe except she uses a Mexican Cornbread mix instead of a regular and adds pimentos!

  7. says

    I would love any of the covered bakers. I am always running out of casserole dishes for my Thanksgiving sides!

  19. Andrea says

    I’ve never tried any of the Rachel Ray baking pans but after reading this, I think we would get along quite well. I think it’s time to swap the old Pyrex pans for new Rachel Ray pans. Changing up T-giving too & trying the corn casserole recipe. Thanks!

  20. Alonna says

    I would love to have the covered casserole. I have some other Rachael Ray stoneware pieces. They are great for the cooking, serving, storing and reheating of all types of dishes. Having a covered casserole would be a welcome addition.

  21. MeganM. says

    I’d love to try out the casserole pan. My last one broke and I haven’t been able to replace it. And this recipe sounds so yummy!

  22. Gayle Gooding says

    Help question…I know how to pin (of course), but what link am I suppose to be posting. I’m using an Android phone.
    Thank you!

    • Tonia says

      Hi Gayle,
      I didn’t set up the Rafflecopter and without entering it myself, I can’t see all of the options. So, to be sure I know what you mean, are you asking how you post your link to your pin in the Rafflecopter? If so, you can find the link by going to Pinterest, sign in and when you click on your name in the upper right corner, a drop down list will appear. Choose “Your Pins” and click on the pin that you want the link to. It will show up full screen. Now, copy the URL and paste it into the Rafflecopter.

      An easier way to do this is, right after you pin something, a box shows up with a red button that says “See it now”. If you click that button, you will be brought directly to that pin and you can grab the URL.

      Thanks for entering!
