Recipe Notes For Paula Deen Corn Casserole:
Prepared Corn Muffin Mix: This is simply used as an ingredient, directly from the box. You do not prepare it or added any other ingredient.
Cheese: If you’re in the “you can’t have too much cheese” camp, then go ahead and add more cheese to the mixture and heck, why not throw a little more on top. ½ A cup will do it and besides, it’ll add a bit of extra gooey goodness.
What Do You Serve With Paula Deen Corn Casserole?
Like the corn casserole Pioneer Woman makes, this recipe is most often used as a side. I like to throw together a crisp hearty green salad, stuffed with veggies. It’s nice and cool and compliments the warmth of the casserole well. You can serve it with grilled or baked chicken breast, (1) Crock Pot Pork Chops, (2)Pulled Chicken, (3) Pulled Pork Sandwiched, (4) Southern Smothered Chicken, (5) Chicken Lazone, (6) Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin, (7) Jambalaya, or (8) Blackened Chicken, (9) Mississippi Pot Roast, (10) Crock Pot Ranch Pork Chops, and, even as a Thanksgiving side! I think you’ll find that this casserole compliments almost anything. It’s a versatile dish, so in all honesty, it’s hard to mess it up.
Can You Make Paula Deen Corn Casserole Ahead Of Time?
If you’re a regular reader, you know we love making ahead! We know it saves you time, and that makes us happy. And yes, you can make it ahead of time! Mix all ingredients (leave out the cheese), and pour them into the pan. Cover tightly and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake. I’d say make it no more than 48 hours in advance, 24 is even better!
How Do You Freeze Paula Deen Corn Casserole?
Yes, you can freeze Paula Deen Corn Casserole, but you’ll want to do it after it’s already been baked. You can freeze it in its entirety, or portion out your leftovers. Follow food safety guidelines when freezing. Let it thaw in the fridge and then heat through. The oven or microwave will do!
