Casseroles are kind of my thing! I love a good dish I can throw together easily with a few on-hand ingredients and then just bake! My Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Keto Philly Cheesesteak Casserole, and Low Carb Breakfast Casserole are super popular recipes.

Corn casseroles can be made a few ways. Some casseroles use cornbread. This one is simply creamy and delish!

Why is it Called Scalloped Corn

Scalloped means baked in a cream sauce (a lot of times cheese) and often times topped with an au gratin. This dish is baked in a cream sauce for sure and you are free to add cheese if you wish.

What Type of Corn To Use. Can You Use Frozen?

You can use fresh, frozen, or canned corn for this recipe. I typically use frozen corn and thaw it first. Frozen corn is so easy to grab so it works well for me.

If using canned whole kernel corn, be sure to drain it first.

You can also use creamed corn if you wish and you do not have to drain it.

How to Make Scalloped Corn

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add corn, flour, cornstarch, and sweetener to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine. If using salt and pepper, season here.
  3. Add eggs, heavy cream, milk, and melted butter to a separate bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  4. Add the milk and butter mixture to the corn and stir.
  5. Pour the mixture into a 9×13 baking dish. Add in half of the breadcrumbs and stir and smooth the mixture throughout the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining breadcrumbs on top.
  7. Bake.

How Long to Bake and Cook

It will take 40-50 minutes to bake, depending on how crisp you like the topping. I like mine a little crunchy so I let it bake for 45 minutes.

Do You Cover It While Baking?

You will need to bake this casserole uncovered. You only want to cover a dish in the oven when you don’t want the top to brown very much. This dish is served with a browned and crunchy crust topping.

Recipe Substitutions

You can add in any of these if you wish!

  • Cream Cheese
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Cooked Sausage
  • Cooked and Crumbled Bacon
  • Evaporated Milk (can substitute heavy cream)
  • Sour Cream

Can You Make it Ahead?

Yes, but it’s best served fresh when the topping is crisp. If making ahead wait and add the second half of breadcrumbs to the dish when you plan to serve it. Toss them on a couple of hours before and then bake on 350 degrees until the top has browned.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze it covered for up to 2 months. Thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat it in the oven on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until warm.

Calories 204kcal

Ingredients

  • 30 oz frozen whole kernel corn or 2 15oz cans, drained
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener
  • salt and pepper To taste and optional. See notes.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cups milk I used almond milk.
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs I used panko.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • If using frozen corn, allow it to thaw at room temperature and drain any excess water.
  • Add the corn, flour, cornstarch, and sweetener to a mixing bowl. Stir to combine. If using salt and pepper, season here.
  • Add the eggs, heavy cream, milk, and melted butter to a separate bowl. Whisk well to combine.
  • Add the milk and butter mixture to the corn and stir.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9×13 baking dish. Add in half of the breadcrumbs and stir and smooth the mixture throughout the pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining breadcrumbs on top.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes uncovered. Bake until the top is crisp. Halfway through I like to spritz the top of the mixture with cooking oil spray. If you want a well browned top this helps a lot.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

  • I have to add salt and pepper to any corn dish I eat, even if it has a hint of sweetness. If you wish to focus on the sweetness of this dish, you can omit salt and pepper.
  • If you like really sweet corn, add more sweetener.
  • This dish is often made using Ritz or saltine crackers. You can substitute panko breadcrumbs for 1 sleeve of either of those.
  • Eggs are used in this recipe for structure. You can use 2 eggs if you want a moister dish.
  • You can also use creamed corn if you wish and you do not have to drain it.
  • Macros above assume monkfruit sweetener. If you use refined sugar they will vary.

You might want to reconsider putting canned corn in the ingredient list. Years ago I weighed it & there was 5 oz. of water per can & only 10 oz. of corn. It may vary by brand but probably not too much. That's why I stick to frozen corn.

I have to give this 5 stars even before I make it. What's not to like? And Brandi has never let us down! My question-what about the use of, as Green Giant calls it, Fiesta Corn, with the peppers?
