Tips for Making Cornbread Casserole with Jiffy
- 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 this cornbread casserole recipe and prepare it in a larger pan.
The flavor options for cornbread casserole are limitless! You can add shredded cheese, a can of green chiles, or jalapeños 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 for your Jiffy corn casserole.
