I love cornbread. I am not sure what it is about it..the sweetness, the nutty flavor, all the wonderful foods like chili and barbecue that it pairs with. Whatever it is, I cannot get enough of it! This casserole is one of my favorites. I usually use this as a side with barbecued chicken and cole slaw. YUM! It is easy and delicous! You can make this ahead too and then just pop it in the oven when you are ready to prep dinner. Enjoy!
Corn Fritter Casserole
1 block of cream cheese, softened
5 tblsp butter, softened
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 pkgs. cornbread mix
1- 15 1/4 oz can of whole kernel corn
1 -14 3/4 oz can of creamed corn
1/2 cup buttermilk
Blend cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add eggs one at a time and blend with cream cheese mixture. Stir in onion,cornbread mix, cream corn and regular corn. Add buttermilk and mix. Batter will still be slightly lumpy. Pour into a buttered 9×9 casserole dish. Bake 45 minutes on 350 degrees. Test the middle to make sure it is cooked through. Sometimes I butter the top and sprinkle lightly with sugar but that is optional. It will taste good with or without! YUM!
