Cheesy Corn Casserole

Here is a perfect side dish.  I especially like it with grilled steak, grilled chicken, or even hamburgers and hot dogs.  Wes and Savannah love this recipe and it is very easy to prepare.  This would be perfect if you’re cooking for a crowd because it makes a huge casserole.  I usually cut it in half for my family. You can prepare this casserole ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.  Remove from refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking.
