Iowa Corn Casserole Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 pound bacon, diced
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces each) cream-style corn


  • 1. In a skillet, fry the bacon until lightly browned. Remove and set aside. Pour 1/8 to 1/4 cup of bacon drippings over bread crumbs; set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings; saute green pepper and onion in reserved drippings until tender. Stir in the corn, bacon and half of bread crumbs.
  • 2. Spoon into a 1-qt. baking dish; sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"This was a tasty meal. However I did make a few changes. I made my own creamed corn listed of using the caned stuff. Next time I'll use 1/2 a cup of bread crumbs. I found using the amount suggested took away from the creaminess of the corn.

Cream Corn recipe found here:"

"I made this recipe for my family along with some grilled chicken. It was a hit! The whole family loved it. While I won't be making this very often (not being very healthy) it is a good special treat! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"I sometimes mix one can of cream-style corn with one can of either drained regular whole kernel corn or shoepeg corn and a splash of milk. My family prefers it that way. This is a simple but great recipe."
