Cornbread casserole is a favorite holiday side dish and there are many variations but we love this version because it is moist and flavorful with a cake-like texture.

It can be enjoyed next to turkey dinner or served hot with a hearty Texas chili, or a spicy chicken taco soup.

Easy to Freeze

To freeze portions: Cut into portion sizes and wrap individually in plastic, then store in a zippered bag and they’ll keep about a month.

To freeze an entire casserole: Bake the casserole on an aluminum-covered casserole dish with 6 inches of foil overhanging on both sides horizontally. Once the casserole is cooked and cooled, cover it with the long foil edges and gently lift it from the casserole dish (this saves the dish for another use). Wrap in plastic wrap and label with the date on it. It will keep frozen for about 3 months. Let thaw in the refrigerator and reheat in the oven.
