This is an old-fashioned cream corn recipe that is easy to make and will remind you of the casseroles that Grandma used to make. If you need a perfect side dish for the holidays (or any other time), look no further! I love how the top of this casserole caramelizes and provides the perfect taste.

Corn has always been a preferred food of mine, and my favorite way to eat it is straight off the cob or in a casserole. I love the versatility of corn – it can be added to all kinds of dishes whether savory or sweet. I don’t think I’ll ever stop loving corn.

What are the Different Kinds of Corn?

You may think that all corn is the same. However, there are four basic types of corn, and each one has a different use.

  • Dent corn (also called field corn) is the corn that’s the most widely grown in the U.S. It is mainly used for feeding livestock, but can also be found in some food products.
  • Flint corn or Indian corn, is similar to dent corn. This hard-shelled corn is pretty because it comes in a wide variety of colors. It is grown mostly in Central and South America and is the corn you see used for decorations in the fall.
  • Popcorn is a kind of flint corn. It has a hard outer shell and a center that is soft and starchy. When exposed to heat, the moisture inside the kernel steams and builds up enough pressure to explode the kernel. Popcorn is unique in its taste and popability.
  • Sweet corn is the kind we eat on the cob or use in cooking. This corn is almost all soft starch, contains more sugar than other corn types, and you can’t pop it. Other corns are picked when the kernels are dry and mature, but sweet corn is picked and eaten while the ears are still in the immature stage and the kernels are tender.
