Top Tips for the Best Corn Casserole

To make a lighter, airier corn casserole, mix in two eggs.

Whole-fat sour cream will give your corn casserole the best flavor and texture, but feel free to use reduced-fat sour cream if you prefer.

For a healthier option, use plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Jazz up your corn casserole by mixing in shredded cheese, bacon, chives, or cooked sausage meat.
