Swiss Corn Casserole

My mom shared this recipe with me back in the '80s and now it's a Turkey Day mainstay. We freeze locally grown corn during peak season, and I love to use it in this special side. —Wendy Young, Cordova, Maryland
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups frozen corn (about 20 ounces), thawed
  • 3 cups shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk together first 4 ingredients; stir in corn, 1-1/2 cups cheese and onion. Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish.
  • Toss bread crumbs with melted butter; distribute over casserole. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 35-45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Any leftover bread can be used to make the bread crumbs. Use an egg bread for a golden hue, whole grain bread for a heartier texture or sourdough for a hint of tang.
  • Try using finely chopped red onion or shallots to add a touch of color to the casserole.
  • For a sharper cheese flavor, use an aged Swiss.

  • Editor's Note
    To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

      Instead of Swiss can another cheese be used? Such as cheddar?

      Hello Wendy Young! Are YOU from that part of Maryland where they only advise you to use Silver Queen? My husband was born and raised there and thinks Silver Queen is the only type of corn that we should use. You must know how hard it is to get and how short the season is for that type? What type corn do you prefer?
