Corn Pudding is similar to this corn casserole recipe but it has a more custard like texture while this dish is a bit more similar to cornbread in texture but slightly softer.

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.

  1. We tweeked this alittle, 13×9 pan, we used almost two cans of sweet corn, three eggs. Real Iowa sweet corn I had vacuumed sealed.. it was a huge hit!!! Definitely making this again!!5 stars

  2. This is one of my favorite recipes. I make it for every holiday and always add minced onions and a cup of shredded cheddar cheese!!!

    If I want to double the recipe will I still use the same oven temperature and cook time?

    1. Hi Tami, you will cook it at the same temperature, but it may take a little bit longer (maybe 10 minutes or so) or until set.

  3. 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!

  4. 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. Hi Lisa, we would love to hear how it turns out if you do attempt it with a gf corn mix!

    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.

  5. 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

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

  7. 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

  8. 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

    regards

    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.

  9. 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,
