Corn pudding vs. Corn Casserole

This dish’s texture is more akin to cornbread than corn pudding, which is comparable to this recipe for a casserole but has a more custard-like consistency.

The components of a corn casserole

This simple recipe for casserole has been around for a very long time. Although the ingredients in jiffy casserole can change, this dish is still one of our favorites.

  • Cornbread Muffin Mix: Jiffy corn muffin mix is the ideal foundation for a light and fluffy casserole. For this recipe, an 8.5oz package is required. (This recipe is quick and simple because it uses both flour and cornmeal.)
  • Butter and sour cream: Butter enhances the flavor of everything, and sour cream adds richness. Before adding, make sure the butter is melted.
  • Corn: Whole kernel corn gives texture, while cream-style corn adds sweetness. Fresh, frozen, or canned corn kernels can be used.
  • Eggs – Including eggs make everything more cohesive.

Nothing Jiffy Mix? No issue. Your own homemade jiffy mix can be manufactured.

Variations

This Jiffy casserole recipe can be altered in a variety of ways. Consider adding any of the following:

  • Onions (or green onions)
  • Jalapenos
  • cheese in the form of cheddar or another variety
  • Bacon
  • new herbs

Making Corn Casserole (overview)

The simplest dish you’ll make is probably a casserole.

  1. The ingredients are mixed in a medium bowl (per the recipe below).
  2. Incorporate into a baking dish.
  3. 45 to 55 minutes, or until golden brown, should be baked it (it bakes perfectly in the toaster oven too).

As soon as it comes out of the oven, I like to sprinkle some parsley on top for color and a little butter for flavor.

If your oven is already full, you may easily adapt this recipe for the Crock-Pot.

Generally speaking, 2-3 hours on high should be plenty for cooking. Simply unplug the slow cooker or put it on warm when it has finished cooking.

To Make Ahead

This casserole may be prepared ahead of time and warmed shortly before serving, making it the ideal side dish.

  • Bake as indicated and let cool entirely to prepare ahead. Up to two days, cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
  • Before serving, reheat the casserole by letting it stand at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through, at 350°F.
  • Bake the casserole as directed and let it cool completely before freezing. For up to three months, freeze in a tight package. Before serving, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the oven.

Keep leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
