Corn and Bacon Casserole

Bacon and Corn Casserole recipe - The perfect holiday side dish!! Bacon, corn, and onion in a blend of sweet and spicy seasonings!

Hello again! It’s Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road, back again with a delicious side dish that’s sure to be a hit at your holiday celebrations! This Corn and Bacon Casserole is definitely going to be on my Thanksgiving menu.

Thanksgiving food is pretty much the best ever. When else can you put all of your favorite things on your plate without anyone telling you to scale it down? This casserole is a delicious blend of savory, sweet and a little spicy. I won’t lie, I kind of just ate some for lunch, so apparently it’s a nice main course as well.

It couldn’t be easier to make. Start by cooking up a half pound of diced bacon until it’s nice and crisp. Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate and clean out most of the drippings from the pan, but reserve about two tablespoons. Saute some chopped onion and garlic, and add the frozen corn and half of the bacon, as well as salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.

In a separate bowl, combine softened cream cheese, milk and parsley. Next remove the pan from the heat (just slide it over to the other side of the stove) and add cream cheese, milk, parsley. Once that’s all combined, pour it into a baking dish.
