I DEVISED this recipe when I needed a quick and easy casserole to take to a friend's birthday party.
I opened a bag of this and a can of that and came up with a dish my family and friends love.
Luckily, I wrote it down when I made it. I had a hunch it was going to be a success!

For almost 30 years, I've been preparing this zippy side dish for all sorts of gatherings. In fact, whenever I'm invited to an event that involves food, it's "understood" that I'll bring this casserole. Plus, it's a great way to use up hard-cooked eggs.

I only wish I knew how many times I've made this dish for reunions and other get-togethers during the past 40 years. It seems no matter how much I make, there are never any leftovers. I've even gotten long-distance recipe requests from people who've moved away and miss my corn casserole.
This comforting side dish makes a creamy accompaniment to most any main course. Not only can you double the recipe for larger crowds, but you can use reduced-fat or low-sodium ingredients if you prefer. Lori Talamao

I've been extra busy since our baby daughter was born a few months ago. That's why this easy-as-pie main dish is filed at the front of my recipe box! My husband really likes its Western flavors of beef, corn and wheat…especially since we raise the last two ingredients here on our family farm! —Deb Poitz, Fort Morgan, Colorado
Corn brightens up any meal with its sunny color and sweet crispness. I decided to create a casserole that combined corn, mushrooms and a rich cheesy sauce. I succeeded with this recipe. It's an easy dish to make and a popular part of any party buffet.

This recipe combines the comforting tastes of my home state with my love of using garden-fresh herbs in my cooking. From Thanksgiving turkey to grilled pork chops in summer, any entree is enhanced with this savory side.Joyce Manier, Beech Grove, Indiana
