Ingredients to Amy's Corn Casserole on a blue and white kitchen towel.

It’s a smart thing to keep these ingredients in your kitchen. They can quickly become this delicious side dish when the need arises. My daughter-in-law Amy has helped grow this casseroles popularity by sharing it often. She is the designated corn casserole maker every Thanksgiving, and we love her for it, amongst other things.

The word around town lately is that it’s Amy’s Corn Casserole. I’ve heard, “Mama made Amy’s Corn Casserole last night, and gosh it was so good,” and have gotten texts asking for Amy’s Corn Casserole. So for her diligent work, this dish has been named after her. Good job Amy!

Just Open, Mix , Pour, And Bake

There is not much thinking involved when you prepare this casserole. All you do is open the containers of the ingredients and pretty much just throw them together in a bowl, stir, and pour into a baking dish.

Then, after it’s baked for a little while, top it with cheese, bake some more and it’s ready.

Changing It Up A Bit

Even though it’s delicious as is I tried adding a small can of green chilies and used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar. Ooh, it’s so good!

The pepper jack cheese browned darker than the cheddar as you can see, but didn’t hurt the casserole in any way.

It may have even made it more appetizing to the eye and oh, the aroma! (Still working on those scratch and sniff photos, Bruce!)
