This easy Corn Casserole is one of our favorite side dishes. Prep is extra fast using a cornbread mix and stirring in creamed corn, fresh herbs, and butter then baked until golden. 

Serve this side dish at any holiday table or really any day you just want some good ol’ comfort food.

Ingredients

This recipe has been around pretty much forever.

  • Jiffy cornbread muffin mix is the perfect base for a fluffy easy corn casserole. You’ll need an 8.5oz box for this recipe.
  • Butter  Butter makes everything better and sour cream is added for richness.
  • Corn and creamed corn for texture and sweetness.
  • Eggs help hold it all together.

There are lots of different variations of this recipe and lots of great add-ins including onions, different cheeses, and even jalapenos!

If you haven’t had corn casserole before, you are going to love it. Corn Pudding is similar but has a more custard type texture while this corn casserole is a bit more similar to cornbread in texture but softer.

To Make Ahead

This recipe can be made ahead of time and baked. Cool completely and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 2 days.

To reheat if baked ahead of time, allow the casserole 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 up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and warm in the oven before serving.

How To Make Corn Casserole (overview)

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

  1. Mix the ingredients (per the recipe below)
  2. Pour into a casserole dish
  3. Bake it for about 45-55 minutes (it bakes perfectly in the toaster oven too).

Variations/Additions

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

Add in your favorites including

To Cook in a Crock Pot (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.

More Holiday Sides

This is the perfect side along with stuffing, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

  1. Recipe says: “Prep is extra fast using a cornbread mix and stirring in creamed corn, “FRESH HERBS” and butter then baked until golden. ”

    Is the parsley sprinkled on top the “fresh herbs”?

    Thanks Holly!

  2. Made this in a Countertop oven/air fryer combo and the top browned within 20 minutes. Should I just put a layer of foil on to let the middle finish baking?

    1. Yes, cool completely and wrap tightly before freezing. This can be thawed in the fridge overnight and then warmed in the oven before serving.

  3. One of the best ever corn casserole recipe i have ever tried. Thanks for sharing this corn casserole recipe with all of us. 5 stars

  4. I have tried this amazing corn casserole recipe and i found this recipe really an amazing recipe. I love this recipe. 5 stars

  5. Hi All, Just wanted to say I followed the recipe and it was great. Except….when I opened the microwave after supper, I saw the 1/2 C of melted butter. Oooops! The thing is, we all loved this without the butter. Next time I make it I will still add the butter just to judge if it’s needed. Thanks for the recipe! *Hugs*5 stars

  6. Hi Holly
    While I do love so many of your recipes and do subscribe to your newsletter, I note that so many of your recipes call for ready mixes which are not available in Australia where I live.
    Your Corn Casserole sounds wonderful but what is Jiffy Corn Mix…… here Jiff is a household cleaner LOL

    1. That is too funny Jane! I can promise you it is not the household cleaner :) Jiffy Corn Mix is a premade dry corn muffin mix. You can make your own corn muffin mix or try a similar product found in Australia! I hope that helps.

  7. I have been using a similar recipe for almost 20 years, and I can say that this is a truly delicious dish. The original recipe I found did not include sour cream, and the recipe works perfectly without it. (I will try the sour cream version the next time I make it.) My original recipe does include 1 minced raw medium onion–I saute mine first with a portion of the butter called for in the recipe. I strongly suggest adding the onion! By the way, the leftover corn pudding makes a fantastic breakfast side dish instead of potatoes. The corn pudding with whatever add-ins you choose would also make a great dish for a brunch,
