Skinny Corn Casserole

Skinny Corn Casserole

This healthy corn casserole is perfect to make for a potluck -- guilt on the side!

Warm and rich, this Skinny Corn Casserole recipe is just what you've been craving. Corn casseroles are a staple at any potluck, but this recipe is so great because it's actually a healthier version of the classic corn casserole. Don't worry, though -- no flavor is sacrificed here. This recipe uses creamy Greek yogurt and egg whites to add texture and lighten the whole thing up. Plus, this recipe is good for when you need to make a great side dish in a hurry because it uses a shortcut ingredient. (Don't worry. We won't tell!) Bring this recipe to your next family gathering, and it'll be the talk of the buffet table.

From the Chef: The Greek yogurt in this recipe replaces some of the higher-fat ingredient options like sour cream or butter that can usually dominate a corn casserole. That way you get all of the benefits of a healthy veggie side without all the detractions.

Ok, I have to ask...why is this a casserole exactly? Maybe it's just me but this is basically how I make my cornbread because I like the texture that the corn adds to it, but I've never considered it a casserole. I do think however if you were to add some chopped spinach and green onion to the recipe it would be more casserole like and be pretty tasty as well.
