Sweet Creamed Corn Casserole

Sweet Creamed Corn Casserole is buttery, cheesy, Cornbread goodness that’s easy to make and hard to stop eating! It is so good and with such simple ingredients, everyone loves this dish.

A must have at any family gathering, I made this Sweet Creamed Corn Casserole one time and now everyone wants it and it goes quick. A true Southern favorite!

Someone should really call Oprah, she would definitely put this on her “New Favorite Things List”.

It’s hard to believe not everyone knows about the buttery, cheesy goodness that is this Sweet Creamed Corn Casserole a.k.a. Corn Souffle, Southern Spoon bread, Corn Pudding, or Paula Deen’s Corn Casserole…among the other 100 or so names we have seen this under.

I’d not had any of those, ever. How could this be? I don’t understand, but I’m happy to have this in my life now and hopefully you will be too!

A few years ago we went to a local restaurant and saw this on the menu. You might have heard of the restaurant if your a fan of Guy Ferrari and “Diners, Drive Ins and Dives”. The restaurant is called “Highway 61 Roadhouse” just outside St. Louis, MO in Webster Groves. It’s like our own little piece of New Orleans. The decor is awesome; huge murals on the walls, multi color chandeliers hanging everywhere, live music, and the food is to die for.

Guy only covered a few items on the menu from there, this wasn’t one of them. When I saw this I thought, “That can’t be bad, sounded good in fact.”

When it arrived at the table it didn’t look like anything to get that excited about, it’s really not a thing of beauty. But when I tasted this simple creation, I thought “Where have you been my whole life?”

You don’t know whether to be mad because you’ve never had it before or just be elated because you’ve found another new favorite thing.

Needless to say I’ve been making it for every holiday since then, plus a few times in between holidays just because it’s that damn good.

It goes quick on holidays too, I mean it literally gets scarfed down and that’s a double batch.

It’s so easy to make anyone can throw this together in 5 minutes, no chef skills required. In fact the quicker you make it the better, because you don’t want to over whisk it, kinda like pancakes if you whisk them too much they’ll be flat.

Don’t forget to follow along, so you don’t miss out! Did you know you can get a notification on your phone now as soon something is published? People are loving this so much, more than the emails clogging up your inbox. If you happened to not accept the notification box earlier…now is a good time to click the small bell in the corner and get signed up!

So without further ado let’s get cooking, and be sure to let me know if you love it as much as I do. Updated with more pictures!

Glad you liked it. It is a favorite around here. Haven't tried it in cast iron yet...may just give it a go.

Can you double this recipe and also instead of sour cream coudll I use plain geek yogurt ?

Mr. Yum

Sunday 23rd of December 2018

Yes, you can double this recipe. Just check the note at the bottom of the recipe box. As far as using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream...we have never tried that, so I can not say exactly how that would turn out.

Could you double this recipe and bake it in a 9x13" pan?

Mr. Yum

Monday 19th of November 2018

Yes you can, and we do it ALL the time. The baking time is only a few minutes longer...just keep an eye out for the browning to let you know when it is done.

Oh, boy! I just now finished eating a delicious vegetable laden turkey pot pie, followed by a piece of pecan pie, then I saw this as I ate the last bite of dessert. Stuffed with good food as I am, this recipe sounds so fabulous, I'm ready to make it and eat it tonight!! I think I'd better be wise, though, and make it tomorrow night. I can hardly wait--cornbread is one of my "forever and ever" favorites from way back 62 years ago, when I first had it as a little three year old girl. Thank you for sharing something that looks divine, and probably tastes that way, too :-D
