This week’s recipe swap theme was sides. I got mine from joeyzlovieg – AKA Jamie.

Homer’s Corn Thing – AKA: Corn Casserole

1 Pkg of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 Can of cream corn
1 Can of whole kernel corn, drained
1 stick of butter, melted
2 eggs, already beaten
1 8oz container of sour cream


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray Pam in an 8×8 Pyrex dish (you can also uses a 13×9, but I would probably cook it at 350 instead). Add all ingredients together and mix. Pour into greased Pyrex. Cook at 375 for 50 minutes – an hour, or until golden and firm… Let it cool and settle for at least 10 minutes. Slice into small portions and enjoy!

When I saw the title I was a little worried….what a name. However Jamie kindly included a little background on her dish which was nice! “Background:I first had this while having dinner at my FIL’s house… Joe made pork spare ribs with sauerkraut, and his dad made his famous “Corn Thing” as a side… It was to die for! Eventually I asked for the recipe, and he gave it to me willingly… His nickname was Homer – hence the title for the dish! I hope you enjoy!”

I cooked the recipe as listed and didn’t change anything. I thought it was quite tasty and a great compliment to my pulled pork and I can see it being popular at BBQ’s. Because this is a starchy dish I used it as such and added a green veggie to my meal. It was too big for just my husband and I so next time I’ll have to be sure to make it when there is more then just the two of us.
