With Thanksgiving just a couple of weeks away, it’s time to start thinking side dishes! My aunt always makes an amazing corn casserole that I just love. When I was thinking about recipes that would go great with Sargento Shredded Cheese, I wondered if maybe that corn casserole dish would work? Is it possible to make something amazing even better? With Sargento Shredded Cheese, the answer is usually yes. I say “usually” because, well, there are SOME things you really can’t put cheese in. For the most part, though, I say “bring on the cheesy goodness!” It definitely worked in the corn casserole.
Cheesy Corn Casserole with Sargento Artisan Blends Double Cheddar
I didn’t really want to call my aunt and ask her for the recipe because I didn’t want her to think I was messing with her classic. I went looking for a recipe online, but really didn’t want to just copy someone else’s. I wanted it to be mine. Besides, I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for: something creamy and delicious but not processed-tasting. So I pieced together my own recipe! Check it out! Ingredients:
- 15 ounces frozen cream corn (most recipes call for canned, but I think frozen tastes fresher), thawed. I couldn’t find exactly 15 ounces, so I bought two 10-ounce boxes and used half of the second one.
- 15 ounces of frozen whole kernel corn, thawed and drained
- 1 8-ounce package of your favorite corn bread mix (you could make your own, but I’m not quite that industrious!)
- 1 cup + 1 tablespoon low-fat all-natural sour cream. The extra tablespoon makes a huge difference, so don’t skimp!
- 1 stick of butter (you could go with margarine, but I like to go with the real stuff), melted
- 4 ounces (about a half bag) of Sargento Artisan Blends Double Cheddar Cheese
- Preheat oven to 350
- Throw everything except the cheese in a large bowl. Mix.
- Toss in about a small handful of the cheese. Mix.
- Pour it into a 13×9 casserole dish.
- Bake for 45 minutes.
- Remove and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of the dish.
- Bake for another 5 minutes.
A few things: most of the recipes I’ve seen call for a whole bag of cheese. With Sargento Artisan Blends Double Cheddar, that’s really not necessary. In fact, it’s too much. Sargento Cheeses are so full of body and flavor, you don’t need to drown your food in it to get the right taste. I also added cheese into the mix as well as on top, to really distribute it throughout. Again, a little goes a long way. What you see in the picture above is exactly how much I mixed in.

What recipes will you make this holiday season with delicious Sargento Cheese?
This sounds delicious! And so easy! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Side dish? I would eat that entire thing all by myself LOL. It sounds awesome.
I cannot believe that I am over 50 years old and have never tried corn casserole! I have heard of it, but I honestly don’t think I have every had the opportunity to try it. So I am not going to wait for it, this looks delicious and I would love to try it!
Sargento is my favorite cheese because it melts so good. I am going to be using it to make hash brown casserole!
We love Sargento cheese and most likely will be making 3 cheese macaroni this season. I can’t wait.
Love this brand of cheeses because it’s real cheese and not loaded with other stuff! Looks like a great recipe!
My husband is really fussy and there are very few things he likes, but I think he would absolutely love this.
We have a recipe for corn casserole that we make every Thanksgiving that has a ton of cheese in it also. Not great for our waistline, but so so good!
This looks really yummy! We make something like this that we bake in the oven and call it corn pudding. I made it last year during Thanksgiving and it was a hit!
Oh that sounds great! I bet this would be great for something different at Thanksgiving.
That sounds delicious! Honestly, we throw that Sargento cheese on everything and it makes everything delicious!
This side dish looks so good and cheesy. My friend and I was just talking about how good Sargento cheeses are.
That looks amazing! Wish I had this recipe for our Canadian thanksgiving! Yum!
This sounds yummy and looks really tasty. Who wouldn’t love corn and cheese?
I love Sargento cheese. We use it all the time and love their cheese sticks. Sounds good as macaroni and cheese to LOL
I’ll be making my layered potato gratin. Do they have a gruyere variety?
That sounds like something that would hit the spot on a cold day. I love corn so this would be yummy!
This sounds delectable! I would love to try it with that cheese.
I’m not much of a corn lover, but would use that cheese with pasta or potatoes. I really love cheesy dishes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Oh, that looks so good! I would eat that for breakfast right now LOL
I have a great Tater Tot recipe i like to top with cheese. There are so many great recipes to add cheese to.
Cheese makes everything taste better! That casserole looks oh, so good!
I like corn casserole made with creamed corn and jiffy cornbread mix. So yummy!
I can see how it would work in the corn casserole. And Sargento has a great quality of cheese!
No need to ever eat plain corn again. I have a lot of corn on the cob from our summer garden. I’ll have to whip this up and see how the family likes it. I’ve never made a corn casserole for them.
I make these super cheesy and yummy au gratin potatoes, and now you have me craving them. I’m trying to hold off until Thanksgiving!
When ever we go to Meijers we are always buying Sergentio cheese usually we get colby jack as that’s my husbands favorite. We buy a few bags at a time as we eat a lot of salads and it’s great to put on top of casserole dishes or a baked potato but I love the idea of putting it on corn casserole.
What a great side dish. It looks so delicious and I know my family would love it. I definitely have to try this on Thanksgiving.
This is a fabulous side dish that I am going to love!!! I love all the ingredients so combined together this should be as delicious as it looks.Thanks for posting.
I make one quite similar to this! But to be honest, I am going to try it your way! Maybe it will be better than mine!
