Cheesy Corn and Macaroni Casserole is a favorite recipe from the Oehlert side of our family. It’s quite good for church dinners or family gatherings.

(Post modified with new photos on 5/26/23.)

I remember the first time I tasted this dish at one of our Oehlert family gatherings. My husband’s Aunt Marlene brought it to the picnic, and I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. Baked cheesy goodness with little pieces of corn all mushed together with tender macaroni. Second helpings, please!

I quickly nabbed the recipe and have been making it for our family ever since. It always goes over well at church potlucks, and is a perfect choice for your next picnic, barbecue, or even holiday dinner.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

Melt Butter and Add Milk and Cheese Cubes

In a medium saucepan melt the butter. Add whole milk, cubed processed cheese, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper.

Do not drain the regular corn, as the extra moisture is needed for the uncooked macaroni. 

Cook on low heat and stir until cheese has almost fully melted.

Macaroni to the Melted Cheese Mixture

Add to this the corn and macaroni. Stir to combine.

Sprinkle Top with Black Pepper and Smoked Paprika

Pour mixture into a greased casserole dish and season with freshly ground black pepper and if desired, smoked paprika.

I love adding smoked paprika to some of my recipes, as it adds a touch of sweet, spicy smokiness to the dishes, which works really well in this recipe.
