Summer is around the corner and we eat a lot of corn on warm days. It already feels like summer here in Arizona, so we’ve been thinking a lot about corn, a summer staple, and new tasty ways we can use it in recipes. Aubrey and I got together on Friday night for some appetizers and to hang out and we decided to make Parmesan Corn Pudding. It was really easy to make and tasted fantastic!
It was a great way to include corn and our kids loved it too!
We love easy casserole recipes and have eaten and created many different types. Our moms made us amazing casseroles while we grew up, and now we have the joy as moms ourselves of making them for our families. They are great as side dishes, but can also be perfect family dinners since you can add in different ingredients to include meat or vegetables.
Country Crock Original is great as a spread and in cooking and since it delivers an amazing country fresh taste without any trans fat or hydrogenated oils, we replaced the butter in our Parmesan Corn Pudding recipe with Country Crock. We loved that there was a lot less saturated fat and less calories than butter and when we have to consider wearing bathing suits any day now, we need ways to save on fat and calories. Parmesan Corn Pudding was an incredibly delicious casserole and it would make a wonderful side dish for summer barbeques or at the holidays.
