Lorie’s Corn Casserole
This is a side dish that Jamie’s Aunt Lorie always made around the holidays. She’s since passed it onto Jamie’s mom, who took over making it, and now us! This creamy, cheesy corn casserole makes the perfect addition to any festive table, and it’s super simple too! Let us know what you think of this in the comments, we love to hear your thoughts.

- Total Time: 40m
- Serves: 8 people
- Yield: 6-8 1 cup portions
- Category: Soups, Sides, & Breads
- 2 Cans of Whole Kernel Corn, drained
- 1 Can of Cream of Celery Soup
- 8 oz Sour cream (could use non-dairy sour cream instead)
- 3/4 c Cheddar Cheese, shredded (can use non-dairy or goat cheddar shreds instead)
- 1/2 c Onions, finely diced
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Pepper
- 1 c Ritz Crackers, crushed
- 4 tbsp. Butter, melted (can use vegan butter if you'd like)
- Start by preheating your oven to 350*. In an 8" x 8" oven proof casserole dish (or similar size), spray with Pam or other cooking spray to prevent from sticking.
- Next, finely dice onions and shred cheddar cheese (if not already shredded). Combine the first seven ingredients together in a bowl (except butter and Ritz crackers), and stir well until fully combined.
- Place mixture into the prepared casserole dish and bake at 350* for 20 minutes. While waiting for the casserole, combine the crushed Ritz crackers and melted butter in a bowl and set aside. Remove the casserole from the oven, add the cracker mixture on top and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. The corn casserole is done when it begins to bubble around the edges.
- This keeps really well in the fridge in a Tupperware container and is great warmed up for leftovers. Will keep about 5-7 days in the fridge (if you even have that much left over)!
- You can also layer these ingredients before baking if you don't want to mix them up! Follow Step 1 and the prepping part of Step 2 from the instructions above. Then (instead of the mixing part) layer the ingredients into the dish, starting with the drained corn, then adding the sour cream, cheese, onions, salt and pepper, finally adding the soup on top. Then follow the rest of the directions as above.
