What You’ll Need

To create this mouthwatering corn casserole, you’ll need the following essential ingredients:

  • Corn: Whether you opt for fresh, frozen, or canned corn, choose your preferred variety. Just remember to drain excess liquid if you choose canned corn.
  • Creamed corn: Del Monte creamed corn is gluten-free, making it a safe option. However, be sure to check the ingredient label of other brands, as some may contain gluten.
  • Sour cream: Full-fat sour cream is the key to achieving the perfect consistency.
  • Butter: Melted butter adds richness and flavor to the mix and topping.
  • Cheddar cheese: Shredded sharp cheddar cheese brings a delightful cheesy note to this corn casserole. For the best flavor, I recommend grating your own cheese, if you have the time.
  • Mix: Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ’s favorite gluten-free cornbread mix is the ideal choice, but feel free to explore other options as well.
