Ingredients for Corn Casserole

This easy corn casserole recipe has been around pretty much forever. While jiffy corn casserole ingredients can vary, this recipe is really one of our favorite side dishes.

  • Cornbread Muffin Mix – A box of Jiffy corn muffin mix is the perfect base for a fluffy easy corn casserole. You’ll need an 8.5oz box for this recipe. (This contains both flour and cornmeal making the dish quick and easy!).
  • Butter & Sour Cream – Butter makes everything better and sour cream is added for richness. Be sure to melt butter before adding.
  • Corn – Cream-style corn adds sweetness while whole kernel corn add texture. Canned, fresh or frozen corn kernels will work.
  • Eggs – The addition of eggs helps hold it all together.

No Jiffy Mix?! No problem. Make your own homemade jiffy mix.

Variations

There are lots of different variations that can be added to this Jiffy corn casserole recipe, try adding any of the following:

  • Onions (or green onions)
  • Jalapenos
  • Cheddar cheese or another flavor of cheese
  • Bacon
  • Fresh herbs

How To Make Corn Casserole (overview)

Corn casserole is probably the easiest dish you are going to whip up.

  1. Whisk the ingredients in a medium bowl (per the recipe below).
  2. Pour into a baking dish.
  3. Bake it for about 45-55 minutes or until golden brown (it bakes perfectly in the toaster oven too).

I like to add a little butter on top as it comes out of the oven, and some parsley for added color.

To Cook in a CrockPot (or Slow Cooker)

Much like Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Crock Pot Stuffing, this recipe can easily be adapted for the Crock-Pot if your oven is full.

The cooking time can vary slightly but 2-3 hours on high should work. Once it is cooked, just unplug the slow cooker or set it to warm.

To Make Ahead

This corn casserole really is the perfect side dish, it can be made ahead of time and heated just before serving.

Make Ahead – To make ahead, baked as directed and cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 2 days.

Reheat Before Serving – To reheat, allow the casserole dish to sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes. Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

To Freeze – Bake the casserole as direct and cool completely. Wrap tightly and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and warm in the oven before serving.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
