Jiffy Corn Casserole Recipe
Sometimes you just want simple ingredients and a simple process and this corn casserole is exactly that. This easy recipe is similar to the Paula Deen classic and will quickly become a family favorite at Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas dinner.
This casserole dish, also known as spoon bread casserole, is the perfect side dish to serve with your next holiday meal or potluck any time of year. It’s creamy and soft and is delicately flavored with sweet corn.
Ingredients/ Shopping list
- Canned corn – This will give the texture to the casserole and give that pop of yellow color throughout each portion. I used one can of whole kernel corn and drained it. You can also use fresh corn or frozen corn that has been thawed and drained of excess liquid.
- Creamed corn – Combining cream-style corn with whole corn kernels as the combination intensifies the corn flavor.
- Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix – This is an easy dish to make and using a box of Jiffy mix is a little hack to save you time.
- Unsalted butter – Used to combine the ingredients together.
- Sour cream – This will help to give that cream flavor.
- Large eggs – Help to create that spongy texture.
1. Add sliced jalapeños or green chiles to make a spicier version.
2. Add a cup of freshly grated cheddar cheese.
3. Mix in half cream cheese and half sour cream for a creamier and cheesy flavor.
4. If you want to make this dish a little more substantial then you could add cooked crispy bacon bits, ham, or even some shredded chicken.

- All ovens are different so baking time may fluctuate. If you notice the top getting too brown too quickly, cover with aluminum foil to protect it from burning.
- If you are looking to keep the calories low then you could use low fat sour cream instead.
- This is the perfect make-ahead dish. Once baked, let it cool and store it in the refrigerator for later.
- Make small individual muffins instead of one large bake. The cooking time will need to be reduced to 18-20 minutes.
If you have made this recipe ahead of time, or you have any leftovers then let them cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
If you have leftovers and want to reheat them, place the dish back in the oven and allow it to warm through. Always remember to place a cold dish from the refrigerator in to a cold over and then turn the over on.
Yes, you can! Allow to cool completely and then wrap in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. You can freeze this corn casserole for up to three months. Simply let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat as noted above. You can also freeze it uncooked, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and bake as directed.
