This is a tasty corn casserole to make for a holiday dinner or family meal. It's an easy-to-prepare recipe that is baked in the oven.

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, about 4 ounces
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (approx. 15 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1 can (11 to 15 ounces) Mexican-style corn with peppers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon or your favorite prepared mustard
  • 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs (soft, finely ground)

Steps to Make It

  1. Grease a 2 to 2 1/2-quart baking dish. Heat oven to 325 F. 

  2. Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until onions are just tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Stir in flour until well blended. Stir in salt, pepper, and milk and continue cooking, stirring, until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted.

  4. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs. Stir in cream-style and Mexican-style corn, mustard, and 1 cup of the breadcrumbs. Combine the cheese mixture with the corn mixture. Spoon into a prepared baking dish.

  5. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and toss with remaining 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs. Sprinkle buttered crumbs over the corn casserole and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until firm in center.
