I’ve tasted many cornbread casseroles in my day and this one wins hands down… It’s rich, moist, creamy and loaded with flavor. It’s amazing how some of the best recipes are often the simplest to make. The original full fat recipe has ingredients such as sour cream, butter and 2 entire cups of cheese. This skinny makeover is using similar ingredients but reduced or fat-free versions. I found that using only ½ cup of reduced-fat cheddar cheese provides plenty of flavor. The skinny on this divine casserole is 205 calories, 5 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. A slice of a regular casserole has 306 calories and 15 grams of fat. It’s yummy!
- 2 large onions, chopped (about 3Â½ cups)
- Â¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light
- 4 egg whites
- 1 egg, I love Egg-Landâs Best eggs
- 2 tablespoons fat-free or reduced-fat milk
- 1 (1-LB) package Marie Callenderâs Original Corn Bread Mix
- 2 (14.5 oz) cans cream-style corn
- 1 cup fat-free sour cream (Â½ pint)
- Â½ cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a 13âx9â baking dish with nonstick spray.
- 2. In a microwave safe bowl, add the onions and butter. Cook in the microwave on high for about 4 minutes until soft. Set aside.
- 3. In a medium bowl, mix together the egg whites, egg and milk. Stir in the cornbread mix and cream-style corn. Spread cornbread batter into the prepared dish.
- 4. Spoon the cooked onions and liquid left in the bowl evenly over the top.
- 5. Using a rubber spatula carefully spread the sour cream over the onions. Itâs not necessary to completely cover the onions. The sour cream will create little pillows.
- 6. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top of the sour cream.
- 7. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until golden brown.
- 9. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into squares. This casserole may be made ahead of time, refrigerated and reheated. It also freezes great.
