Mac Corn Casserole Method

If you are in a hurry and do not wish to wait one hour for the casserole to bake, another, faster method to use in baking your corn and macaroni casserole is to prepare your macaroni and cheese on the stovetop, then pour it into a prepared casserole dish. Top it with your cornbread mix, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350°F. 

If you choose to use this second method, you may want to add a bit of milk to your mix to help keep the macaroni moist. You will end up with a delicious casserole if prepared using either method.

If you are a cheese lover, you may feel free to add a bit of additional cheese. Also, if you are afraid of it turning out dry, a bit of milk can also be added. However, this recipe, prepared as is, makes for a delicious and low-cost meal that everyone will enjoy! 

For the cheese, you can use shredded, Velveeta, or about 8 slices of individually wrapped cheese slices that melt easily along with shredded cheese. If you are unsure of the amounts, simply add your cheese and mix it in, until it looks like the amount of cheesiness you like to eat. 

Fresh Corn Casserole

If you have some fresh corn you are looking to use in making your corn and macaroni casserole, this is a definite option. To use fresh corn, simply add about one to one and a half cups of milk to your casserole as you bake it with uncooked pasta. Your cheese and butter content will remain the same.

Miranda Lambert’s Corn Casserole

Miranda Lambert’s corn and macaroni casserole is the ultimate comfort food. It is so rich and creamy and is the perfect combination of savory with a hint of sweetness to it. Mixing macaroni and cheese with corn is not a combination I might have dreamed up, but when I tried it, it was so good! 

To top it off, my family also loved this casserole, which is great for me, because it is so easy to make! I chose to add a box mix of prepared Jiffy cornbread mix on top of our casserole as well, to help enhance the corn flavor. This tasted so good! 

One word of caution though is to not slack on the cheese or milk. These two ingredients help prevent the entire casserole from becoming dry. Otherwise, this dish is perfect for a fall, winter, or even summer day. Let’s be real, there is no bad time for macaroni and corn!

Corn and Velveeta Casserole

Corn and macaroni made with Velveeta has a rich and creamy texture to them. Often times, this is the way to go, if you are trying to avoid the gritty taste that can often use entirely shredded cheese. Another great way to mix it up, if you are not able to use a block of melty cheese, such as Velveeta, is to use the sliced melty cheese, mixed in with your shredded cheese. This will help to give you a lovely flavor, and a great texture.
