CORN CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS

Corn Casserole raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 (15.25-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14.75-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 8-ounce box of Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup of butter, melted
  • 1½ cups of shredded cheddar cheese

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SPICY: Kick up the heat a notch by adding a few jalapeños to your mix!

SWEET: Add ¼ to ½ cup of sugar for a sweeter casserole.

FLUFFY: Add two eggs for a lighter, fluffier corn casserole.

BACON: Add cooked, chopped bacon to the mix before baking — because absolutely everything is better with bacon, yes?

CHEESE: I made this with cheddar, but you can substitute it for mozzarella, provolone, or Monterrey Jack. Or make this extra creamy by adding 4 ounces of softened cream cheese to the mixture.

GARNISH: Add a little bit of fresh chopped parsley before serving the baked corn casserole.

SOUR CREAM: Substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream if you prefer in this great recipe.

CORN: You can use fresh corn, canned corn, or frozen corn in this sweet and savory side dish.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CORN CASSEROLE RECIPE

PRO TIP:

You can prepare this creamy corn casserole up to 48 hours in advance and store it in the fridge covered in plastic wrap. When you’re ready to bake, simply remove and set it on the counter for 30 minutes before popping it in the oven.

STEP ONE: In a large bowl stir together the two cans of corn, muffin mix, sour cream, melted butter, and cheese.

STEP TWO: Pour corn mixture into a 9×13-inch casserole dish that has been coated with nonstick spray.

STEP THREE: Pour into prepared dish and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

STEP FOUR: Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

PRO TIP:

​​You can put this recipe in your crockpot and bake on high for 2 hours or on low for 4 hours. You will want to watch as slow cooker temperatures can vary and you may need to cook it a little more or less than those suggested times based on your crockpot.

Making this traditional side dish in your slow cooker is a great idea for holiday entertaining. It frees up the oven for other dishes and will keep your casserole warm until it’s ready to serve.

HOW TO SERVE

Don’t forget our green bean casserole for another great side dish to pair with this creamy Jiffy corn casserole. These dishes would both be fantastic choices for both weeknight meals or on special occasions when you are planning a festive menu.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Leftovers of this corn side dish can be stored wrapped in the baking dish or in an airtight container for two to three days.

IN THE FREEZER: I do not recommend freezing this classic side dish as the texture changes.
