The Name Says It All - Cheesy Corn Casserole Recipe

This recipe doesn’t hold anything back. It’s cheesy and full of corn three ways–featuring cornmeal, whole kernels of corn, and creamed corn. What goes best with corn? Butter! In addition to corn and butter this easy corn casserole with cheese calls for a couple of eggs to hold it all together, and sour cream for moisture, and a teeny bit of sugar to balance it all out. It’s rich and tender, and will have everyone asking for a second spoonful.
