Belongs to dancinjul Corn Casserole 

Corn Casserole is one of my favorite sides during the holidays or at potlucks during any time of the year. It is the easiest recipe to throw together and can be prepared with various ingredients mixed in. Me? I like it in its simplest form, with mainly cheese, corn and corn bread. Mmmm…mmmm…good!

Some people like to top their corn casserole with cheese, but I like to stir it into the mix instead. It’s really just a preference thing, so you can decide. I just don’t like to cover up the yummy crackly corn bread with greasy looking melted cheese. But, hey, I’m not going to try and sway your opinion.
