I am always on the search for an easy recipe that I can make during the holiday season. When we are invited to family dinners, I always offer to contribute a dish to lessen the burden in the kitchen.

Living in the heart of Ohio, we are blessed with a well known barbecue restaurant named City Barbecue.

They are famous for their pulled pork, brisket and homemade cornbread pudding.

If you love the creamy, sweet corn casserole at City Barbecue restaurant, then you are in luck and will love this version. See the recipe card below for easy instructions.

It’s literally as easy as mixing all the ingredients together in a large bowl and baking it on medium heat. In under an hour and once the crispy edges start to show it’s ready to serve.

This recipe is as old-fashioned as mom’s famous corn pudding, and it is the perfect side casserole for your pulled barbecue sandwiches and also impressive served alongside any holiday turkey or ham dinner.

Are you tailgating? Football season is the time of year to share favorite recipes and this jiffy corn casserole is one of my favorite things to share with friends.

Then, whip up a pan of sweet corn pudding casserole and watch it disappear. It’s also easy to make a double batch. I promise there will be no leftover cornbread pudding!

Is this easy cornbread pudding simple to make?

This soufflé-type casserole is loaded with flavor and takes under an hour to make and bake in the oven.

Summer supersweet whole kernel and cream-style corn is paired with traditional cornbread mix.

Do you need more oven space during the holidays? I know I do. My oven just can’t hold it all.

Therefore, there is another solution. This recipe cooks up easily in the crock pot or slow cooker.

Simply whip together all the ingredients, dump into a slow cooker for 3-4 hours and forget about it.

And f you like it a bit cheesy, toss in a cup of your favorite shredded cheddar cheese. Everything tastes better with bacon, right? Add a little crumbled bacon for a sweet and salty kick.

This is one casserole dish you just can’t mess up. It’s has a creamy texture, is sweet and salty, and full of flavor.

What you’ll need for this recipe:

This casserole is so easy to make and just requires a few ingredients.

Corn. Use fresh corn if you have it. Otherwise, grab a can of cream-style corn as well as a can of summer supersweet whole kernel corn.

Cornbread mix. Any brand works great but I love the corn muffin mix brand best.

Egg. Any kind works, brown or white.

Butter. You’ll need a half a stick of butter.

If you are a fan of corn side dishes at your holiday table, then be sure to also give my Boursin Creamed Corn a try.

This dish features sweet corn kernels mixed with salty pancetta and dunked in a creamy Boursin cheese sauce. Yum!
