This easy corn casserole is a delicious side dish – a cross between cornbread and creamed corn. Its soft and fluffy and has a beautiful golden brown crust.

Hey there! This is Richa from My Food Story and today I have for you this really easy corn casserole recipe that makes the perfect side dish.

There’s something about a corn casserole that is so creamy and perfect that everyone loves. It’s got just the right amount of sweet and salty flavours and really needs only five ingredients. However, as always I like to up things a bit and love adding some chopped jalapeno to my corn casserole, along with a squirt of lime when serving. It adds a little heat and lime juice helps notch up the sweet flavours. In my opinion this corn casserole is truly perfect.

The easiest way to make a corn casserole is to get your hands on a Jiffy cornbread mix because that really cuts down the ingredient list. Then you just combine everything with butter, creamed corn, corn kernels, eggs, sour cream and jalapenos. And you are done! Bake for about 50-55 minutes and you have a corn casserole with a perfect golden brown crust.

This recipe may have come from the back of a Jiffy cornbread box year ago because I really don’t remember its origin and got passed onto me by a friend. I’ve used other cornbread muffin mixes and it works just as well as long as you follow the recipe.

Once you bake it, you might see a little butter on the sides, but as it cools a little bit, all the butter gets absorbed to give you a delicious nutty flavour.

This recipe has a nice sweetness to it, but its not overpoweringly sweet. And the jalapenos really add a delicious heat to it thats not spicy, but just there somewhere in the background.

I have to tell you that if you’ve never tried it with a squirt of lime juice, you are in for a treat! Surprisingly this goes really well with my Instant Pot Beef Stew recipe.

I just LOVE this corn casserole but for some reason my family isn’t crazy about it. Sadly, I wind you loving it and eating it TOO MUCH!

Add leftover roast chicken or turkey to the cornbread, serve with a side of homemade citrus cranberry sauce, and its post holiday comfort food at its best!

This was a big hit at a family reunion. My adult niece loved it so much she said she should pay me to give her the recipe. The best part, her dad is a corn biologist.

Can I make this ahead of time and bake it later? I’d like to assemble it this afternoon and then bake it this evening. Thanks!

Yes, that should work. Refrigerate in the meantime.

May I suggest to you both that you only pour off 1\2 of the corn liquid. It makes it a little bit creamy. We also add a tablespoon of sugar. Just a suggestion. It’s the greatest dish to carry to a pitch in meal.

The directions say to drain the canned corn kernels.

I have been making this for well over 32 years…Mine varies by using 2 boxes of jiffy mix…do NOT drain the corn…and we top with cheddar cheese the last 10 mins of cooking. I also don’t add peppers. Comes out moist…we have substituted yogurt for the sour cream…and reduced butter to 4 TB..but it is always yummy!
