What is loaded corn casserole?
Loaded corn casserole is a new twist on an old favorite holiday casserole. This traditional corn casserole is spiced up by adding bacon bits, cheddar cheese, and onions. Think loaded baked potato, but corn instead of potato.
How do I make loaded corn casserole?
To make a loaded corn casserole, start by melting a stick of butter in the microwave or on the stovetop. Be sure to let the butter cool just a bit before adding the eggs, cornbread mix, sour cream, and cheese. Then stir in the bacon bits and onions while saving some to sprinkle on the top after baking.
After whisking all the ingredients together, pour the mixture into a baking dish coated with cooking spray. For a crispier edge to your casserole, coat the dish with butter.

Can you freeze loaded corn casserole?
Loaded corn casserole, like corn pudding, freezes very well. If you make this dish ahead of time, it can freeze for a couple of months if sealed well, or, it will do well in the fridge for two days. I like to make this dish in October and freeze it for Thanksgiving. Corn is always a welcome Thanksgiving side dish.
What meat goes with corn casserole?
Corn casserole goes well with any meat. Since we typically think of a corn casserole as a side dish for a holiday dinner, it seems to make sense paired with turkey or ham. This loaded corn casserole already has bacon in it, so it can also be served as a breakfast meal. The jiffy cornbread mix gives it just enough of a sweet flavor to make a nice early morning meal.
