The first time that I tasted corn casserole (aka corn pudding) at one of our large family gatherings, I knew I had to find the recipe.  To my surprise, almost every recipe that I was given or found included shredded cheese, cream cheese and/or sour cream.  My heart sank…..

I really loved the taste of this classic side dish, but I wasn’t willing to add extra (and unnecessary) fat and calories to this dish, when I knew there had to be a better alternative.  By no means does this recipe fall in the ‘super healthy’ category, however, the nutritional value is much better than the classic version – and without sacrificing the taste!

At the bottom of the recipe, I have included how to make your own corn muffin mix. This time of the year it seems to be popular addition to many recipes. Feel free to double, triple, or even quadruple the muffin mix recipe and store in air tight containers for use over the next couple of months to make your life easier.
