HOW TO MAKE CORN CASSEROLE
If you’ve never tried homemade corn casserole before, you are going to fall in love with how quick, easy and delicious this buttery casserole is.
I wasn’t kidding when I said 5 ingredients is all you need:
- Jiffy cornbread muffin mix
- Corn kernels (fresh, frozen or canned)
- Creamed corn
- Sour cream
- Melted butter
Prepare it in advance, cover and refrigerate it so you can bake it on the BIG day!
WHAT DOES CORN CASSEROLE TASTE LIKE
The creamed corn shines through in this recipe with a hint of sweetness, mixed with a buttery flavour thanks to the sour cream. Its texture is similar to that of a corn soufflé but not as fluffy or high as one.
The thing is, when you first pull it out of the oven, you expect a cake as it looks like one, but it is so soft and creamy on the inside, just as a pudding should be.
Cheese — Mozzarella, Cheddar, Provolone or Monterey Jack work really well here and taste amazing with this casserole.
Chives — or sliced green onions.
Herbs — Rosemary, thyme or parsley are popular choices.
Bacon — If serving with bacon, you can fry it up while the corn casserole is in the oven and sprinkle it over the top when its done. You could also mix the bacon into the batter if you want bacon pieces on the inside.

Is there any alternative we can use if corn muffin or bread mix is not available. Really want to try this dish as I live your recipes
Even better than I imagined. SO good. I think of it as Triple Corn Casserole and have just baked my first one – of many to come I’m sure! Like other comments – this will be a good base for creativity in the kitchen also! Thanks so much for the recipe. Genius!
This is a great recipe as is. I’ve also added 1/4″ cubes of Colby/Jack cheese & some chopped roasted jalapenos to the batter, baked as directed, then topped the entire casserole with pulled pork, shredded Colby/Jack, the back in the oven for 5 minutes or so to melt cheese. Today I’m trying the same “one pan” style with pulled BBQ chicken. Love the casserole as is & enjoy changing it up to a complete meal! Thanks for sharing 🙂

I need to make this for 15 people. If I double the recipe, will it fit in a 9×13 pan still and will it set up correctly? or do I need to do it in two pans? Does the cooking time change?
Mickey Clancy says
I made this for Thanksgiving and it was great! Everyone loved it. Can I mix the cheese into the mixture before baking rather than on top? I think it would make it more cheesy. Thanks!
Yes, I do both
I made this for dinner last night. Oh my! It’s absolutely delicious and so easy.
Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
That sounds great! I am so glad that you enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing with me! XO
Looks great. Will try this. I’m assuming you use canned creamed corn. If so, any particular brand or do you make your own creamed corn? Happy Holidays.
At this time I do not have a particular brand that I use. Any brand will work great! Thanks for choosing one of my recipes! Enjoy! XO
Just made it today and my son (5 y/o)who is a very picky eater loved it from the moment he walked in and smelled it. everyone agreed this recipe is a keeper n
I have used a similar recipe for years, always a hit! I also add 2 eggs, slightly beaten, bake the casserole for 20 mins, then sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
This sounds GREAT! I will add this my meal planning. Sounds like something quick and yummy for the family….Thank u and HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO U AND YOURS☺
AW! Thank you so much! Happy Holidays to you too! Thank you for following along with me! XO
Made this for Church early Thanksgiving. Love love love it. Your recipes are always so good I will make this over and over until they beg me to stop. Everyone try it. You will not be disappointed..
Hi This looks so good, I can’t wait to try it. I think I will make it at Christmas though. I live in the US so Jiffy mix is everywhere – lucky me! What is the music in the video? Thanks so much!
Thank you for the comment! I am so glad you are following along with me! The music is sourced by my husband! He is the master behind it all. Thanks so much! XO
Looks like a nice recipe I would like to try, but the Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix has me stumped. Where here in Australia can we buy it?
I usually find it in the baking isle near the muffin mixes. If you are not able to find it, amazon usually is able to ship it to you. I have found it in local grocery stores though. Thanks so much for choosing one of my recipes! XO
Can also google recipe for homade jiffy mix
John google how to replace the Jiffy mix with flour, sugar, etc.

Hi, would love to try your corn casserole…something different. Unfortunately we don’t have the instant muffin mix. Can you please give me a recipe using normal corn meal.
Anne Wratten (Australia)
The muffin mix is located by the muffins on the baking isle or amazon usually has it to ship to you. I am sorry it is hard to find for you. At this time I do not have a recipe with corn meal. You are welcome to substitute it for the muffin mix if you would like to try that. Thanks for following along with me! XO
Mike Albers says
It’s easy to make the corn casserole a main vegetarian entree. Saute whatever veggies you want until almost cooked. Then add then to the basic recipe.
It may need to bake longer before it’s fully set.
BARBARA QUINTANA says
Can I use
cornbread mix in place of jiffy muffin mix. How much?
Yes, that will work too! Thanks for asking and using one of my recipes! XO
