This Corn Casserole Recipe is one of our favorite side dishes for just about any dinner. A delicious cornbread base is filled with creamed corn, fresh herbs, and butter then baked until golden. It’s the perfect Thanksgiving dinner side dish!

Side dishes are just as important as main dishes on any turkey dinner menu. From stuffing and mashed potatoes to 30 Minute Dinner Rolls and this corn casserole, we love all of the sides as much as the turkey!

Corn Casserole

Corn Casserole is a simple dish, and comes out so moist, buttery, and sweet every time. What’s not to love?

This recipe has been around pretty much forever and it’s been a staple at turkey dinners for as long as I can remember! I bring this cornbread casserole with me to every potluck turkey dinner. It can be prepared in advance and brought with you! Just pop it in the oven to reheat while the turkey rests.

If you haven’t had homemade corn casserole before, you are going to love it. The sweetness of the corn in this buttery golden casserole creates a side dish recipe that you will want to make again and again!

I always make this easy casserole with Jiffy cornbread muffin mix.  This cream corn casserole also includes corn for texture and color, I prefer fresh corn, but frozen works just as well!

How To Make Corn Casserole

Corn casserole is probably the easiest dish you are going to whip up for turkey dinner. All you need to do is mix the ingredients, pour it into a casserole dish, and bake it for about 45-55 minutes (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. If you’re heading to a potluck or bringing it with you, just cover it with aluminum foil and pop it back in the oven when you arrive!

Can You Cook Corn Casserole In A Crock Pot

Much like Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Crock Pot Stuffing, this recipe can easily be adapted for the Crock Pot if you’re worried about saving precious oven space.

The cooking time really depends on your slow cooker but generally 2-3 hours on high is the perfect time to cook corn casserole.

Once it is cooked, just unplug the slow cooker or set it to warm.

  1. What type of herbs do you sprinkle on top before serving?

  2. Can you make this the night before and re-heat the next day? With only one oven the Turkey comes out and biscuits usually go in.. Don’t have 45-55minutes to bake this the same day… ?

  3. I’ve made this for years, I use sweetened condensed milk butter, egg, and sweeten low, and I can’t count how many people love it

  4. Hello, will it turn out the same if you use a gluten free corn bread mix?

    • I haven’t tried it with GF mix. This recipe is pretty forgiving so I feel like it should work (but can’t say for sure without trying it). Please let us know how it goes if you try it!

    The nutritional information at the end…..

    Is this “Per Serving” for each of the 8 servings in the recipe, or for the whole recipe?

  6.   The butter poured over the top . Please that with maybe half the butter in butter milk or evaporated milk and half the butter 

  7. My store only had a big box of Jiffy Mix. Can you tell me how many ounces to use?

  8. Holly this looks amazing! Have you tried it with bacon? If yes, which way do you prefer? I’m bringing this to thxgiving and just curious if I should add it or leave it alone?

  9. I’ve made this every Thanksgiving and it’s delicious. This year I want to double the recipe…I’m using a casserole dish, how long should I bake?

    • I haven’t tried it but I’m sure it would work. I’d check at the suggested time and every 10 minutes until it is ready. Enjoy Lisa!

      • Holly: This recipe sounds delicious, especially with some cheddar added. I have 2 questions:
        1. I want to double the recipe as well & bake it in a 9×13 glass dish. The check every 10 minute advice is helpful. However, would the “bake til brown” still work on the larger dish. Wondered what the consistency is for doneness?

        2. We are traveling with this casserole. I’m trying to decide on whether to bake it Wed morning at home or just mix it & take to bake it Thursday. Also, any advice on how long to “reheat” if cooked ahead of time?

        Thank you & your followers for all the info posted.

        • If you double the recipe, it will still cook beautifully. The consistency is a bit similar to a cake, if you press your finger on the top, it should spring back and not leave an indent.

          This recipe is super easy to make so you can pre-bake or mix it and bake once you’ve arrived at your destination. To reheat I would suggest about 325°F for about 15-20 minutes or so.

  10. I plan on doubling the recipe to take it to a potluck. I also plan on cooking it in a crock pot. Would it still take 2-3 hours in the crock pot since I doubled it?

  11. Can’t wait to make this, but my Mom used to layer raw bacon on top and then bake. It was awesome! I think she also added bits of pimento, but I’m not sure and it seemed she made it with crunched saltines, but I’ll try your way with bacon.

  12. is Jiffy cornbread mix the same as Jiffy Corn Muffin mix

  13. This recipe has been a Thanksgiving family favorite since I got married 40 years ago! I have to make to recipes for our gathering each year because the grandkids fight over it. There are never any leftovers. 

  14. If using frozen corn do you just thaw or do you cook it first?

  15. I made this recipe for the firs time last night, it was huge hit. It’s delicious and so easy. I added 1 cup of shredded cheddar as noted as an optional add in. I plan to make it for Thanksgiving.

  16. Can you make this in a crockpot? If so, how long to cook? Thanks.

  17. Looks delicious. Anyone tried to make this without the eggs?
    I have a child with allergies.
    I think it could still work.

  18. What size pan?
    Would a 9×8 pan work?
    2 quart casserole doesn’t tell me dimensions

  19. This is the same recipe I have made for years & passed down to the next generation.  BUT I put the liquid of the whole corn in the recipe.

  20. Can you prep the night before and refrigerate? If so, does the bake time change the next day? 

  21. If I want to make this casserole in advance of Thanksgiving,, is it best to freeze uncooked or prcooked>

  22. You still need to correct the baking time and total prep time in the initial synopsis. It incorrectly says 25 minutes bake time and 30 minutes total prep, right after the recipe title and just before the ingredients list and directions. It is still inconsistent with the directions to bake for 45-55 minutes. We love this recipe and have been making it for years. I also add diced red pepper when making corn casserole.

  23. Is this a casserole or cut like a reg.corn bread and butter or honey on it?

  24. I have been making this same recipe for years. My mother passed it on to me. It is one of our family’s favorites. It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without it. So easy to make and so yummy!

  25. This sounds Awesome 8~}
    Is the consistency creamy when it is done ??
    ((I just Luvvv that (sorta) creamy corn side/dollop that alot of Mexican/Spanish restaurants serve. Have Never been able to find a recipe for it but this sounds like it would taste like that.
    Sounds Yummy can’t wait to try it 8~}}

  26. Hi Holly , I just wat to ask what can I use as a substirute for Jiffy corn muffin mix …cause they don’t sell it where I live , can you please help.

  27. Can you freeze leftovers?

  28. Could you double and put in a 9×13 cooking pan?

  29. Do you drain the canned corn?

  30. Under your “how to” comments you say bake 20-25 minutes…but under your “instructions” you say bake 45-50 minutes. Which time is correct? Thanks.
