How To Make Corn Casserole
It really couldn’t be an easier side dish to make folks. You dump everything in a mixing bowl and give it a few stirs. Pour into a pan, bake, and voila you have the most delicious comfort dish of all time.
JIFFY CORNBREAD MIX VERSION: In a large bowl combine the corn muffin mix, cream-style corn, canned corn (drained), sour cream, melted butter, and egg just until combined. Pour into a baking dish either a 9×13 or a 12″ cast iron skillet and bake at 350 degrees F for 40-50 minutes or just until the center is set.
HOMEMADE CORN CASSEROLE VERSION: Replace the Jiffy mix with the following 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/4 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Follow the rest of the recipe exactly.
Corn casserole is similar to cornbread in texture. It’s moister than cornbread but still has that cornbread texture. Corn pudding is more of a custard and not bready.
Reheat in the microwave as needed or to reheat the entire casserole remove from the refrigerator for 30 minutes then cover with foil and reheat in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until heated through.
Yes! Make as directed and cool completely. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 days then reheat when needed.
After mixing pour into a slow cooker and cover. Cook on LOW for 3-4 hours or HIGH for 2-2 1/2 hours. As all crockpots cook differently watch your casserole closely. It is done when the center is set.
Yes! Place completely cooled casserole in a freezer safe container or wrap casserole in foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator.
Tips and Variations
Looking to change up the corn casserole and make it your own? Try some of these suggestions:
- Sprinkle the top with grated cheddar, crumbled cooked bacon, and chopped green onions before serving. The warmth from the cornbread will melt the cheese.
- Drizzle with honey just before serving
- Stir in 1 can green chilies and 2 cups shredded monterey jack before baking. Serve topped with chopped cilantro and a dollop of sour cream or guacamole.
- Leave the egg out for a slightly denser version
- Garnish with chopped chives
