Corn and Bacon Casserole - Fresh corn kernels and bacon in a light and creamy sauce that has been flavored with garlic and basil. So good!

Over this past Memorial Day weekend, our local supermarket had some great deals on fresh corn on the cob – so we stocked up!  We enjoyed our favorite grilled corn on the cob over the holiday – but then cold and rainy weather returned here to New England.  It was so cold the other night we actually turned the heat back on in our house – crazy for the end of May!

But at dinnertime, on that cold and rainy evening, we had the perfect reason to make this super delicious Corn and Bacon Casserole!  Made with fresh cut kernels of corn and bacon in a light and creamy sauce flavored with garlic and basil – this is the perfect taste of summer in comfort food form!

This corn and bacon casserole is so good – even if it were 90 degrees outside, instead of 48 degrees – I’d still gladly turn on the oven in our kitchen to make this delicious dish!

We hope you enjoy this corn and bacon casserole as much as we do!  If fresh corn isn’t in season, you can feel free to substitute frozen corn kernels instead.

    Can this be made ahead? Any special instructions? I’d like to make it 24 hrs ahead of an open house dinner.

      Hi Debbie – Yes – you can mix it up ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. I’d suggest taking it out of the refrigerator ahead of time to bring it back close to room temp before baking. Enjoy!

    This was a lovely dish. Whole family enjoyed this. Used frozen corn kernels, and sour cream (as we prefer this to the Greek yoghurt). We scored this 9/10. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that we will definitely be having again.

    Two questions.. 1) Can you use drained canned corn? 2) Can you make the night before and toss in the oven the next day?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi – Yes – drained canned corn should work fine. If you make it the night before, I would suggest holding off on adding the bacon to the top until you are ready to bake it. It might need to be stirred after sitting overnight but otherwise, it should be fine. Also, if you are baking it from a chilled state, it might take longer to heat. Hope that helps!
