Creamy Potato, Corn, and Bacon Casserole. The perfect side dish for any holiday. #ad #simplyholidays @simplypotatoes

We are all about the sides in our house when it comes to the holidays. This casserole has got it all – potatoes, sweet corn, salty bacon and it’s all wrapped up in a creamy sauce with a buttery, crunchy topping. It’s the kind of over-the-top goodness that you expect on your holiday table! Did I mention the buttery, crunchy topping?

I chose Simply Potatoes® as the base of this dish, because I like to make delicious food that doesn’t take hours to prepare! Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes (I usually find them in the refrigerated sectioned near the eggs in my local store) are fresh and never frozen, and are a real time saver (I absolutely hate peeling potatoes!). They were perfect for this dish because I can just stir them in straight from the bag.

After mixing the ingredients together the casserole is baked for about 45 minutes (you just want it to be nice and bubbly and golden on top). I love that it’s totally versatile – add some diced chicken or sausage and some broccoli you’ve got a full meal!


My family loved this Creamy Potato, Corn and Bacon Casserole as a side to our favorite Baked Chicken Breasts, and the whole meal came together in just 30 minutes. That’s what I call a lifesaver!

  1. I wanted to make something I had never made, or even seen, for our family Thanksgiving “potluck” Dinner and I came across this. I got a nervous when I noticed that thot did not include when or how to add the sour cream, salt, pepper and garlic powder and I prayed there want anything special that needed to be done. My family LOVED it. There was over half the casserole gone within 10 mins of the line starting. My niece even asked for the recipe. Thank you for sharing this.

    1. The sour cream was added in the first step, and then listed as the “cream” mixture so I see how that could have been misunderstood. The seasonings had been left out of the instructions so I apologize for that. Thank you for your comment, I’m so glad your family enjoyed the recipe!

  2. Definitely adding that casserole dish to my holiday dinner. I am going to add lots more cheese, however. Thank you for that wonderful recipe!

  5. That casserole sounds delicious, I was thinking of leaving the corn out and having it for breakfast Christmas, I don’t see why you can’t have the corn and still serve it for breakfast with eggs on the side.
