Ingredients for Corn Casserole

This Jiffy corn casserole recipe is made with a handful of ingredients – simply stir and bake.

  • Cornbread Mix – An 8.5oz box of Jiffy corn muffin mix is the perfect base for this easy corn casserole. If you don’t have a box on hand, you can make a homemade version of Jiffy mix here.
  • Corn – Cream-style corn adds sweetness, and whole-kernel corn adds texture. Canned, fresh, or frozen corn kernels will work.
  • Dairy – Melted butter adds richness and flavor, while sour cream is added for moisture. Eggs help hold it all together.


Experiment with different add-ins to customize this Jiffy corn casserole recipe.

  • Minced white onion (or green onions) or fresh herbs
  • Diced jalapenos
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Cooked bacon

  1. Whisk the ingredients in a medium bowl (per the recipe below).
  2. Pour into a baking dish.

    1. I have only made this recipe as listed, so I can’t say for sure. But I would love to hear how it turns out for you.

  1. This is such a satisfying easy dish! I love it. I had not made this for a while and forgot what the texture of the cooked casserole was to be. Once it cooled a bit , all that deliciousness and the soft corn tastey bites woke my tastebud memories! Yum! Paired this your crispy baked potatoe wedge recipes to go with our grilled ribeyes for Christmas dinner. Thank you and best to you and your family for the Holidays!5 stars

  2. Two questions: how much bacon if adding, and secondly, is there a noticeable sour cream tangy taste to the baked casserole? Thank you.

    1. I would suggest about 3 tablespoons of crumbled bacon – you can add more but this amount will add just a little bit of flavor. I don’t notice a tangy flavor in this recipe once cooked.

  3. This was delicious! I added a small handful of cheddar, and a bit of powdered onion and fresh ground black pepper. I’m vegetarian so I used the Vegetarian Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix instead. It took a little longer to set but maybe that was the different Jiffy mix?5 stars
