Corn Casserole Recipe - Tips and Tricks

  • Use salted butter. If unsalted is all you have on hand, add 1 teaspoon of salt to the mixture.
  • Adjust the sweetness. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar or omit it completely, especially if you use fresh kernels. These are typically sweeter than canned, so be sure to sweeten to taste.
  • Don’t overbake! It’s not a cornbread cake, so it will still be a little wet when it’s done. The texture should be thicker than pudding and creamier than a cake.
  • Sour cream substitute: Plain yogurt is a great replacement. You can use any variety of thickness for this dish.
  • Feeding a crowd? Easily double the recipe and prepare it in a larger pan.

Add-In Ideas

The flavor options for this Jiffy corn casserole recipe are limitless! You can add shredded cheese, a can of green chiles, or jalapeƱos to taste.

Savory bacon can help balance the sweetness, or try including your favorite aromatics like herbs, onion, and garlic.

Or, toss in some seasoning! Cayenne or chili powder will add straight heat, while cumin and a little smoked paprika can create a Mexican twist.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can I use frozen corn instead of canned?

There isn’t a good substitute for the can of cream style, but you can easily substitute 1 ½ cups of defrosted kernels for the can of sweet kernels.

What’s the best way to store leftovers?

Once cooled, cover tightly or transfer to an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months.

Reheat in the oven or warm individual portions in the microwave. If frozen, thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

Can I make this Jiffy corn casserole recipe ahead of time?

Absolutely! Simply prepare as directed and refrigerate until it’s time to reheat.

If you’ll be serving guests, I recommend making this no more than a day or two in advance for the best flavor.

How many cups are in a box of Jiffy cornbread mix?

One 8-ounce package yields about 1 ½ cups of dry mix. There’s no need to measure for this recipe, but be sure to follow that amount if you end up using a different brand.

Easy Corn Casserole Recipe

This corn casserole recipe goes from prep to oven in just 5 minutes! Enjoy a delicious combination of flavors and textures in one savory dish.
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 45 MinTotal time: 50 Min

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter an 8x8 baking dish and set aside.

  1. WHERE is the video? I don’t see it in this posting.

  2. The picture of the casserole dish above does not look like a square 8 by 8 pan that the recipe calls for. Maybe it is just the picture but what size does it take for this casserole?

    1. She said further down if you double the recipe use a 9 X 13. she probably doubled it.

  3. Can you make this in a crockpot?
