Corn Casserole

11 Apr

Let me start out by telling you I am not a casserole person.  Throwing random ingredients in a baking dish and calling it a meal is just not for me.  I have never liked them.  This is the exception to the rule.

Our family picked up this recipe several years ago from a friend and it has graced every holiday table ever since.  I think any member of my family, including myself, would throw a major tantrum if it wasn’t there.  It has humble, not so fancy ingredients but it is so so good!  And simple!

Corn Casserole

1 stick butter, cubed
1 cup orzo or spaghetti broken into small pieces
1 can corn
1 can cream corn
8 oz. Velveeta, cubed

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients in a baking dish.
3. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring frequently.

    I learned this recipe from my step-in-laws when I got married to Mike. It is yummy!!! We go through 2 batches for holidays (Mike has 4 younger brothers ;)).

    I live on casseroles. I’m suprised you are not more fond of them since you like to bake. I really don’t like to cook, so I’d prefer to bake lunch and supper too! Plus casseroles always = leftovers which I love to have on hand.

      I really need to start learning to love casseroles living in such a cold place! I don’t know what it is about them….just don’t really enjoy them.
