Here is what you will need:
- Jiffy corn muffin mix
- Can of sweet corn (whole kernel corn)
- Can of cream style corn (creamed corn)
- Sour cream
- Melted butter
Note: I have found that some cans of corn are 14.75 ounces and others are 15 ounces. Either size can will work well for this easy corn casserole recipe.
Corn Casserole Recipe Variations
- Regular corn: Only have non-sweet corn on hand? No worries! Your casserole will still be amazing–just not as sweet. If you want to make it sweeter you can add ¼ cup sugar to the recipe.
- Cheese: Add ½ to 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to the recipe for a delicious cheesy corn casserole.
- Extra sweet: Add ¼ cup sugar for extra sweetness.
- With a kick: Add a little bit of canned green chiles (or a whole can if you are feeling spicy).
How to Make Jiffy Cornbread Casserole
Making the casserole is as easy as mixing the 6 ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and baking in an 8 x 8 casserole dish as directed in the recipe card below.
That is it!
How to Make Jiffy Cornbread Casserole in the Slow Cooker
Add the combined ingredients to a lightly greased crockpot and cook for about 2-3 hours on high or 4 hours on low. The center will be set when the casserole is done.
Refrigerator: Cover cooled leftovers with plastic wrap or place in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3-4 days. Reheat for about 10-15 minutes in a 300° F oven, or briefly in the microwave.
Freezer: For best taste, I recommend NOT freezing this recipe, as it can change the texture.
What to Serve with Corn Casserole
This jiffy corn casserole goes great with turkey (think classic Thanksgiving dinner), meatloaf, roast chicken, chicken tenders, crockpot chili, mashed potatoes, and buttermilk biscuits. But you can pair it with whatever your heart desires!
Yes, this recipe is great for making ahead! This recipe can be made up to 24 hours before baking. Prep ahead then cover the baking dish tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator. When you are ready to bake the next day, uncover the dish and allow it to sit on the countertop for about 30 minutes before baking. This will help it come back to room temperature. Then bake as directed.
You sure can! To double the recipe double all the ingredients and bake in a 9 x 13 baking dish for about 55-65 minutes.
Maybe it was on the box of Jiffy at one point? I am not sure where it originated… I just know that this is the absolute best corn casserole I have ever had.
