Broccoli Corn Casserole is a delicious, easy to prepare, baked veggie side dish, with corn, broccoli, onions, spices, and a buttery crumb topping!

Over 40 years ago I got a recipe box, and started keeping track of ideas I found in magazines, books, etc. I would quickly scrawl them out on a 3×5 index card, and then file them away to cook “someday”.

Well… this recipe for broccoli corn casserole is one of those recipes! Recently I went rooting around in this very old recipe box, looking for ideas, and found this one. Now it didn’t have the recipe source on it (had no idea so many years ago that I would blog about food), so I don’t know where it came from.

What I CAN tell you is that this broccoli corn casserole is EASY TO MAKE AND YUMMY. Cream-style corn, frozen o fresh broccoli, onion, egg, and simple spices make up the foundation of this simple side dish! The ingredients are mixed, then topped with a buttery topping and baked. That’s IT! Here’s how to make it:

A Little Bit Of Prep

Two things need to be done before assembling the casserole. I found it easy to do both at the same time, which shaved some time off the prep.

Cook broccoli florets whether you will be using frozen or fresh. EASY. Once cooked, you can cut them into smaller pieces. In a separate skillet, cook the chopped onions for about 4-5 minutes until cooked through (no need for oil or anything!). Set broccoli and onions aside.

Broccoli and chopped onions are cooked before assembling casserole.

Assemble The Broccoli Corn Casserole

Okay… now it’s time to put this simple casserole together! Grab a medium sized mixing bowl, and add a can of cream-style corn, the cooked broccoli, onions, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Stir these ingredients together until fully combined. Once combined, add a well-beaten egg to the mixture, and stir, to incorporate. NOTE: The reason to add the egg AFTER everything else is combined is so the onions and broccoli have cooled a bit, so the egg won’t scramble when added.

Spray a 1½ quart oven-safe dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the broccoli corn casserole ingredients into the dish.

The casserole is poured into a greased oven-safe dish before baking.

Add The Buttery Crumb Topping

Place crackers in a resealable plastic bag, and finely crush them using a rolling pin or mallet. I used Ritz crackers, but you can certainly use what you have available.

Once the crackers are crushed well, mix the crumbs with melted butter until a nice topping comes together. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the surface of the casserole.

Bake The Bacon Corn Casserole

Place the dish onto the middle rack of a preheated 350°F oven, and let the veggie casserole bake for 30-35 minutes. When done, the crumb topping should be light golden brown and any liquid should be bubbly around the edges.

If you want the topping to be more deeply browned, leave the dish on the middle rack and turn the oven broiler on for just a couple minutes. Keep an eye on it!

After baking, the casserole cools for a couple minutes before serving.

Time To EAT!

Once the broccoli corn casserole is finished baking, remove it from the oven. Place the dish on a wire rack and let it cool for about 5 minutes before serving. This allows time for the casserole to firm up just a bit after cooking.

The veggie casserole will pair nicely with chicken, pork beef or fish. I served it with some simple Cajun chicken strips this time, and it was a wonderful side dish! Leftovers can be stored (covered) in the refrigerator for several days.

Hope you enjoy this simple side dish! We really did, and love the fact that it is so very easy to make! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for visiting. Come back soon!
