  • This corn casserole doubles well to feed a crowd.

Corn pudding is similar to this corn casserole recipe, but it has a more custard-like texture. This dish is slightly softer than a cornbread.

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.

Variations

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

  2. Pour into a baking dish.

  1. I made the corn casserole. Everybody said it was the best. I’m 77 years old and male. I have never made corn casserole before and I was surprised and happy that it turned out really good. Will be trying more of your receipts in the future.

  2. I made this Easy Corn Casserole for our Thanksgiving dinner and also entered a photo in this month’s cooking challenge. It was a hit, everyone loved it. I was make it again and often. Thanks for sharing the recipe.5 stars

    1. Sour cream is in step 2. Enjoy!

      2. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, eggs, corn muffin mix, corn kernels, creamed corn, and sour cream. Stir to combine.

  3. I will be making this for 31 people. I had planned on 4x the recipe. Your thoughts in that please. What size pan and how long for cooking time do you recommend?5 stars

    1. If making 4x the recipe, I would recommend two 9×13 pans. You’ll want to increase the baking time by about about 20 minutes or so until the casserole is cooked through.

    1. I would suggest doubling the recipe (you can use the 2X in the recipe card) and bake it in a 9×13 pan. You will need ot increase the baking time to 55 to 65 minutes.

  4. I would like to make this for Thanksgiving. I need to serve 12-14 people, how do I modify the recipe to serve that many.
    Thank you

    1. I would suggest doubling the recipe (you can use the 2X in the recipe card) and bake it in a 9×13 pan. You will need to increase the baking time to 55 to 65 minutes.

  5. Thanks! I just made this recipe because I have to make corn casserole for Christmas and I’ve never made one before but this will be the one I’ll use. I followed recipe and it turned out great!5 stars

  6. Absolutely delish! We make corn casserole every year, but this year we tried yours. We modified the recipe and it still turned out sooooo yummy! We used Fleischmann’s corn muffin mix instead of Jiffy (since Jiffy has lard), omitted the eggs, added 1/4 cup extra frozen corn, and added a 4oz can of diced green Chiles. We brought it to Friendsgiving and several people asked for the recipe. Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Jiffy has been making a vegetarian mix for several years and it’s displayed next to theur regular mix. I find it in my supermarkets in NJ.

  7. I make this every year, but I add a can of either green chiles or diced tomatoes with chiles. I’ve never added eggs to the recipe, but I’m sure it’s great with eggs. I also sprinkle the top with whatever cheese I have on hand (usually cheddar).5 stars

  8. hi Holly, I love reading and trying some of your recipes. I have a question about your corn casserole recipe. If I want to add some onion or and jalapeño peppers, do I need to saute them first? Also can a small can of diced green chiles be added? Thanks

    1. If adding a tablespoon or so of minced onion, you don’t need to cook it first. If adding more onion, I like to cook it in a bit of butter to soften. Green chiles is great in this recipe.

  9. Could I prepare this the night before and bake it in the morning? Do you think baking it right away is best?

    1. Hi Eleanor, I haven’t tried it but preparing it the night before should work just fine. It may take longer to bake. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!

  10. The inside seemed to never firm up. I ended up cooking it way over an hour and it was still mushy inside but with a browned top. I don’t get it. Is it supposed to be cut into pieces like bread or scooped out and mushy with corn kernels?2 stars

      1. If you use a deep 2qt dish like an 8×8 then this will happen. You need to use a longer baking dish.

  11. Made the corn casserole. I first made it a month ago to try it. It was very good! Am glad to see the recipe again because I was going to look it up for Easter dinner. Thank you for sharing.
