Skinny Corn Casserole

Want another reason to love corn? It is very rich in phytochemicals and provides protection against a number of chronic diseases? That’s not the only reason we’re cookin’ up this lightened-up corn casserole. We also love this dish because one bite is reminiscent of homestyle cooking. It reminds us of the dishes our grandmothers put out during the holidays. Making this dish is sure to bring the family together around the table and create warm memories without overdoing your waistline.

This casserole is an excellent side dish or even a delicious snack. The best part is that you can eat a bowl of this and not feel guilty at all. At only 159 calories per serving, you know we will be getting seconds…maybe even thirds!
