A Family Tradition
I've been making this recipe of
On Thanksgiving, I always make this alongside my Best EVER Turkey Recipe with my Mom's Famous Gravy. Everyone in the family has come to expect it Jenny's Lightened Up Jiffy Corn Casserole, so who am I to disappoint?
Made With Healthier Ingredients
A Jiffy Corn Casserole usually includes sour cream and butter. Clearly, not the best ingredients when you're trying to stick to a healthier diet. Our Lightened Up Jiffy Casserole substitutes Greek plain yogurt for sour cream and margarine for butter.
Plus, we give it just a little bit of kick by sprinkling cayenne pepper on top. If you're looking for more of a smokey flavor, rather than spicy, then paprika will work perfectly. My favorite part of this side dish is that it's a one dish item. I hate recipes that result in a ton of clean up afterwards. This one literally gets mixed in the same dish that you bake it in!
Give this corn casserole recipe a shot and I promise it'll quickly become an ongoing part of your summer barbecues and Thanksgiving festivities!
