Can you make corn casserole ahead of time?
Totally! Bake it up to 3 days ahead and store it covered in the refrigerator or freezer. Warm in the oven on 350F for 15 – 20 minutes before serving. If baking from frozen add about 30 minutes to the cook time and cover for the first half hour.
Is corn casserole supposed to be mushy?
Yes, the outside should be golden and browned but the inside should have a soft and moist texture to it.
Can I make it in individual servings?
Try making the corn casserole in cupcake liners so they’re easy to serve individually! This is also a great way to freeze them and enjoy one at a time in single serve portions.
Leftovers and storage

Leftovers will keep for 4 – 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 6 months in the freezer. Cover tightly before storing.
Can you freeze corn casserole?
You can freeze corn casserole. Bake, then allow to cool completely. Store in the baking container or cut into individual slices and layer with parchment paper.
You can also bake the casserole into muffin liners so they will be easy to freeze individually.
