Labor Day symbolizes many things. Most commonly, it reflects the end of summer, the start of a new school year, a 3-day weekend, and the time of the year where the white shoes are supposed to get stowed away (UNSUBSCRIBE. I wait until it does not feel as summer time-ish before mine officially hibernate). Let’s take a moment to visit why we really observe Labor Day as if you’re like me the aforementioned list of the generally attributable Labor Day thoughts come to mind first. I try to make a point of taking even the smallest amount of time though to think of what these fantastics days off work mean across the year. Labor Day is about paying tribute to American workers’ contributions and achievements. It has been long been celebrated with parades, parties, and athletic events. So take pride in being a hard-working individual of the USA and whip up/bring/eat delicious things like this Corn Casserole (a reasonable, in moderation, corn pudding meets corn bread recipe from Skinnytaste) for your celebration of Labor Day! Be safe and have a great long weekend!
- 8.5 oz Jiffy corn muffin mix
- 15.25 oz can sweet yellow corn, drained
- 14.75 oz can sweet corn cream style
- 16 oz fat free plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup melted light butter (I used Land O’ Lakes Light Butter w/ Canola Oil)
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a spoon. It’s going to be really fluffy, but that is a-okay!
- Pour into baking dish and bake for 55-60 minutes allowing the edges to become a nice golden brown hue.
- Allow to cool before cutting into 15 pieces. It is FANTASTIC with BBQ anything per a suggestion
