This Kitchen Has Been Closed

I haven't been posting recipes lately, partly because I haven't been cooking much lately; last week I was mostly home alone, and I confess I ate hot dogs three out of five nights (Bar S wieners, $.77 pkg, Brookshire Brothers hot dog buns, $.88 pkg, and Wolf brand chili, $1.59 a can) When I do cook, lately it's been the same recipes I've already posted, or something that I didn't take pictures of, or something not picture-worthy. I kept thinking every day that "tomorrow" I'd cook something new or make something I hadn't posted so I could take pictures, but somehow I never did.

So today I'm going to get back on track by posting one of my favorite quick and easy Corn Casseroles, beloved of children and adults everywhere. I seriously have never met anyone yet who didn't like this, although I'm sure they exist somewhere. No picture, but I'll remedy that as soon as I can.


  • 1 pkgs corn muffin mix (Jiffy or Corn-kits are the best)
  • 1 can cream style corn
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, slightly drained
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick butter

Put the stick of butter in the baking pan/casserole, and put in the oven to melt while the oven is preheating. Meanwhile, mix all other ingredients; pour into pan with melted butter. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the center is set and the edge is starting to brown.

Good cooking, and good eating!


  1. I made this at Easter and there was nothing's truly a wonderful dish to compliment any meal.

  2. I am chuckling at your kitchen is closed... :) Yes, hot dog lovers unite!! I think we went through 4 packs last week.
    This look yummy. Thanks for linking up. If you could please put Tasty Tuesday into your post, that would be wonderful, so that people can find some more fun recipes and the new location. :)

  3. THis looks fabulous and something my family would probably devour! Thanks for posting! :D

    have a great day!

  4. This looks yummy! I made a homemade cream corn for Easter and it's my favorite, but I might have to try this!

  5. We've been hot doggin' it for a few weeks here, too! Don't feel like cooking? Hot dog. One of us out of town? Hot dog. Hot. Dog.

    My MIL made a similar dish for Easter. Delicious!

  6. Corn rocks! What can you not do with it?

  7. When I make this I never have any left for the next day. Delicious. I also can eat hot dogs and Pizza when I am home alone and I then I wash it all down with a Diet soda:)

  8. We have a similar recipe, and its always a hit at the dinner table.

  9. The corn casserole sounds really good! And I have to say that we love hot dogs too, especially chili dogs!

  10. Just had to share with you... I'd bookmarked this post back when you originally posted it, but FINALLY just got around to making it this last weekend & it is YUM! This has become a family favorite & I'm definitely making it for Thanksgiving - so THANKS! :-)

  11. This looks really yummy. I've never made something like this before - do you have any suggestions as to what it would be good served with?
