Corn Fritter Casserole

Comfort food is a big deal in the South, as I’m sure it is everywhere.  Stuff like Easy Mac, Chicken and Dumplings, or Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake all have the power to comfort a needy heart.

Get ready to add one more dish to your list: Corn Fritter Casserole.

Corn Fritter Casserole

Yum.

It’s creamy and carby in the middle, with a nice crunch of cheese on top.

While I originally found the recipe in Cooking Light years ago, I did what I do best, I revamped the recipe to suit my family’s taste.  In other words, I fatted that casserole up, y’all!  In the printable recipe, I will give you the original next to the Patti-ized version.

Just know that this casserole is worthy of your comfort-needing taste buds.

Corn Fritter Casserole

  4. Add muffin mix, smokey paprika and pepper, stirring until combined.

Notes

All ingredients/instructions denoted with an "O" are from original recipe. I have also substituted frozen organic corn and fresh for the can of whole-kernel corn with good results.

Garry likes to add chopped jalapenos, too.

  1. This is my favorite way to eat corn. Well, I like a roasted corn in the shuck too. But this is fabulous.

  2. GET IN MY BELLY…and I of course would have to add hot sauce to this! Happy Monday Friend! XOXO

  3. Yummy! I love fritters but they always sound time consuming. This fixes that nicely! Pinned 😀

  4. You had me at creamy & carby. 😉 YUMMMMMMM!!!!!!

  5. I wasn’t actually sure what a fritter was (actually, I’m still not sure what a fritter is?), but had to click on this when I saw the title and picture on the “Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop” over at “Recipes for our Daily Bread.”
    Anyway, this looks great. I think I”m going to have to try it. I’m always looking for new dishes.
