Broccoli Corn Casserole

,

Warm up on a cold  night with this cozy casserole dish that Distribution Manager Kris Call’s mom used to make.

“It has been a holiday tradition for probably the last 20 years,” Kris says. “Now my family asks me to make it for every holiday meal, even though mine is still not as good as my mom’s.”
