Easy Corn Casserole

Sharing is caring!

This is my mother-in-laws recipe. I love it! She makes it for family gatherings like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yum!

Even better, it is easy and uses simple ingredients.

I like to make it on just a regular ol’ Tuesday night as a dinner side dish. Generally when it is cold outside. (Remember, I despise using the oven in the summer heat here in Texas.)

It’s kinda like cake- addictingly wonderful! (Yes, I just made that word up.)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 (16 oz.) can whole kernel corn, undrained
  • 1 (16 oz.) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (8oz.) container sour cream
  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar rocks!)
  • 1 (8 oz.) box Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • Pam Cooking Spray (or equivalent) for spraying your baking pan

 
Dump the box of muffin mix in a mixing bowl.

Open your cans of corn.

One cream-style and one regular. This is key.

Dump the cans of corn and all remaining ingredients into the mixing bowl.

Stir well to combine. I like to use a whisk.

Spray the bottom of a pie plate or an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Pour the corn casserole batter into the dish.

Pop it in a 350 degree oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

When you remove it from the oven, let it set for about 10 minutes or so, letting it cool and firm up a bit.

And that is it!

When you scoop it onto plates, it is not going to cut into pie slices. This is more of a gooey’ish casserole. In other words, perfect.

  1. Yum! This looks like a perfect side for a winter meal; and looks so simple to make. Thanks for sharing! (bookmarking momentarily) 😀

  2. Goodness!I’m beginning to get hungry

  3. This looks yummy! I’m going to try it and add jalapenos, we like it hot! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Debby, I bet jalapenos would make is very tasty! Let me know how it turns out if you try it.

  4. This is in the oven right now… can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  5. It was a hit! I have 3 boys and a girl – plus my hubs… they gobbled it up!

  6. I love corn casserole and this looks amazing. I can’t wait to try it (once I’ve lost these holiday pounds haha!)

  7. This is a popular dish where i live. Its not a holiday without it! Families around here have been making this for years. I like its versatility. I sometimes use a can of Mexicorn in place of the regular corn, and you can add some green chilis as well. You can brown a pound of ground beef and make as you would for tacos, put it in the bottom of a casserole dish, add the corn casserole on top(with extra cheese) and bake for a full meal!
