Bonus – I like the bacon in the recipe!
This dish is neither a creamy corn that is loose nor a cornbread that is dry or sturdy. It’s in the middle, with a texture that is soft and tight. It almost feels like corn custard. It’s like a uniCORN (lol, sorry, forever). We can’t stop adding golden scoops to our plates. It has a unique texture that is highly appealing. Sweet corn is scattered throughout, so there are little bursting bites everywhere. Garlic, bacon, and cheese are all of the best things.
We don’t mean to boast, but it is really gorgeous. Indeed, the slow-roasted bird is usually the main attraction, but ….honestly, we might just put this lady in the middle of the table to see what happens.
What is the difference between cornbread, corn casserole, and creamed corn?
There are several variations of creamed corn (heavy cream, heavy buttermilk) that you can make. Cream cheese? What about corn milk on the cob? Yes, it’s a real thing, but the consistency is that it’s creamy. There’s a lot of sauce in your corn kernels. You can find many delicious recipes for creamed corn that are far more than the canned version of it you were given during holidays. While a can on its own may not be everyone’s favorite, using it in this recipe makes for a very tasty dish! This helps to keep the casserole thick and supple so that it stays together even after several scoops.
The corn casserole is a completely different dish than creamed or mashed corn. This is a popular holiday side dish in the south. It’s super moist and almost creamy, with vibrantly colored corn kernels all over. It’s like a combination of creamed corn, cornbread, and a souffle in one dish.
