How to Make Cornbread Casserole
Cornbread casserole is one of those dishes that everyone is happy to see on the table. Here’s a quick overview of the easy steps!
- Whisk dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients.
- Combine the two and then stir in fresh corn, cheese, or other mix-ins at this point.
- Bake according to the recipe below.
Once cooled, cover with plastic wrap. Keep it in the refrigerator until ready to reheat and serve, and it should be good for about 5 days.
Easy to Freeze
To freeze portions: Cut into portion sizes and wrap individually in plastic, then store in a zippered bag and they’ll keep about a month.
To freeze an entire casserole: Bake the casserole on an aluminum-covered casserole dish with 6 inches of foil overhanging on both sides horizontally. Once the casserole is cooked and cooled, cover it with the long foil edges and gently lift it from the casserole dish (this saves the dish for another use). Wrap in plastic wrap and label with the date on it. It will keep frozen for about 3 months. Let thaw in the refrigerator and reheat in the oven.
