Reviews for Corn and Bacon Casserole
"This is really delicious. I've made it twice and my family loves it!!"
"Loved it. Made this corn recipe for a different side dish for Easter, the crowd loved it, even my daughter-in-law asked for the recipe. The dish was finished before the traditional green bean casserole. I used low-fat sour cream just to cut the fat and calories, no one knew the better. Delicious!!"
"I replace half the sour cream with yogurt, and often use the entire package of bacon. Thinking of trying adding shredded cheddar cheese. Also, unlike another reviewer, I find the parsley and chives indispensable in the flavor mix."
"This was really good . We made it for a holiday party and everyone loved it. People kept asking for this recipe."
"A real Winner* You may want to double the recipe for this one. It's that good.One thing I did do was to drastically reduce the amount of Sour Cream. That made it possible for all of the other ingredients to come through. Sour cream can take over. I wanted to be able to taste the wonderful sweetness of the Fresh Corn and the slightly smoky overtones of the bacon.Great recipe that I will share with the rest of my family soon*This time of the year Go with Fresh."
"This is the best corn I've ever had. Way better than cheesey corn. I used half sour cream and the other half was salted butter and cream cheese. I didn't have chives or parsley but it didn't need it. Sauteing the onions in the same pan after the bacon gives so much flavor. My bacon was very lean so added more butter to the grease to saute onions."
"Great, family loved it. Made it with fresh corn. Used half of sour cream and other half cream. Added 1 cup mild cheddar cheese. Fabulous."
"I found this recipe in your magazine many years ago and made it for a function...it was the hit of the party!! I had so many requests for the recipe that evening. I have since added this to my yearly Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner menu."
