This is a great change from the traditional green bean casserole. You can add crunchy bacon bits for a bit of a twist on the flavor.

This is a fabulous base recipe but I only gave it 4 stars because I tweaked the recipe quite a bit. I used the suggested butter and cream cheese amounts but because it was soooo cream cheesy, I ended up using a #10 can of sweet corn and 1 regular can of cream corn. It turned out perfect and less like a dip than the original recipe. I also added in garlic powder, onion powder Lowry's season salt and cayenne. This dish was a hit with my family!
This is a great dish. It has flavor, comfort, and a great addition to just about any meal. I did a couple of tweaks to it. I only added about 1/2 to 3/4 the amount of butter and cream cheese that it called for, and I only added 1/2 the amount of creamed corn but twice the amount of whole kernel corn. It came out so very delicious. My kids and husband loved it, even my adult child who never eats corn loved it. Glad we found this recipe.
What a super yummy casserole. I did take the advice of one of the reviewers and decreased the amount of cream cheese. The only thing it lacked was color. So Yummy and easy to make. Thanks "PENNY" for sharing.
