  • Replacements: Canned corn can be a suitable replacement for frozen corn kernels in this recipe.

  • Serve with Garnishes: To add a pop of color and freshness to the casserole, consider topping it with a sprinkle of fresh chopped herbs, such as parsley or chives.
  • Storage Tips: The corn casserole will keep well in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days and can be reheated in the oven.
