Hi, Friends!  If there was ever any doubt about a white Christmas this year, any trace of that doubt has been eradicated; it’s most definitely gonna be all white on our Christmas grounds.

More like an Ice Christmas with our below-zero cold fronts, but hey, who’s keeping track? ❄️

What we are keeping track of is how many more days until our almost-nightly Interactive Advent Days finally lands on December 25th.

How many more days until wrapping paper comes off boxes under the tree (the boys.)

How many more days until we stay home all day and don’t need to shovel (Hubby.)

How many more days until we can dig into the juiciest brined turkey ever (me.)

When friends come over, we’ll serve up the prime rib and beef tenderloin with wine sauce and all that jazz, but I’m personally a turkey gal through and through. I’m not even close to being turkey’d out and could happily eat it all season long.

Thankfully, most of our holiday side dishes vibe well with any holiday roast. Take this super Easy Corn Casserole, for instance. It’s not only incredibly easy and make-ahead friendly, it’s also crazy delicious! It’s a go-to side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.

In other words, you may want to bookmark this…

Soufflé Style Corn Casserole

This holiday Corn Casserole recipe is deliciously creamy and soufflé-like in texture. It’s somehow both velvety smooth and fluffy at the same time. The crispy Panko topping rounds out this little lovely in the most right way.

The flavors in this easy corn casserole recipe meld together to create a slightly sweet yet savory experience. Grown ups and kiddos alike chow this thing down.

This corn casserole is akin to a super-elevated cornbread that isn’t cornbread.  If there’s such a thing as pillowy cornbread floating on cloud nine, that would describe this dish.

Would it be wrong to just eat a big plate of this corn casserole and call it a night? Or a morning, because it could easily serve as brunch for me as well. Tell me I’m not the only one who eats holiday leftovers before noon the next day.

It’s still not January, so anything goes 😇

Here’s to unwrapping boxes, not shoveling the driveway, and all the holiday roasts. {pssst….and white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.}

Merry Christmas, All!
