5 Ingredient Corn Casserole

5 Ingredient Corn Casserole

One of my favorite things about winter time is sitting down together as a family around the dinner table with a hot home-cooked meal. It’s this time of year when we like to pull out all of the classic family recipes such as meatloaf, baked chicken, Mexican soups….good, simple comfort food.

One of our favorite side dishes to have when we sit down together is this simple 5 Ingredient Corn Casserole.  This dish is so simple and versatile. Trust me…you won’t be able to mess it up!

This recipe was given to me by a friend, but if you’ve ever heard of Paula Deen’s corn casserole, it’s very similar. I’m not sure where this originated though. It’s been around for years.

Is corn casserole the same thing as corn pudding?

I’ve realized since we shared this recipe that many people call this corn pudding. My husband loves pudding so he’s totally on board with this. This recipe does have an almost creamy texture from the cream corn, butter and sour cream.

Call it either…corn casserole or corn pudding. It’s basically the same thing. We do have a recipe that we call “corn pudding”. It has more of a custard base than this recipe. Find the corn pudding casserole here.

Jiffy Corn Casserole Ingredients

  1. 1 can of corn, drained
  2. 1 can of creamed corn
  3. 1 cup of sour cream
  4. 1 stick of melted butter (½ cup)
  5. 1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix

There are many variations of this corn casserole. You can add egg, a touch of sugar, or cheese. But in our favorite? These 5 simple ingredients.

Easy, right?

How to Make Corn Casserole with Jiffy Mix

In order to make this rich, buttery casserole, there are only 2 steps:

  • Throw all of those ingredients in a bowl and mix them up.
  • Transfer the mixture to a greased 8×8 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. The exact baking time will depend on the exact size pan you use, so just be sure to watch the casserole closely. You’ll know it is done when the center is completely set.

This dish is truly winter-time comfort food for our family.  We hope that it becomes a favorite for your family, too!

Jiffy Corn Mix Substitute

Corn Casserole with Eggs

Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.

Cheesy Corn Casserole

Add ½ to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?

Corn Casserole with Sugar

Add ¼ cup to ½ cup sugar….this of course makes it a very sweet corn casserole. If you add the eggs and sugar, it almost takes like a corn cake and could be eaten for dessert!

Can I make corn casserole ahead of time?

Yes! Make this casserole up to 48 hours in advance. Mix up the casserole, place it in the baking dish and cover it with plastic wrap. When you are ready to bake it, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you put it in the oven. Then bake as the recipe suggests.

**It might take a few extra minutes to bake since the casserole will be cold.**

How to Double Corn Casserole

We often double this recipe and bake it in a 9×13 pan. Depending on your oven, this may take an additional 15 minutes to bake, so plan accordingly.

Can you cook corn casserole in a crock pot?

Yes! Cook in a slow cooker on high for 2 ½ hours or on low for 4 hours. All slow cookers heat differently so watch the casserole closely. If you double the recipe it may take longer to cook.

Does corn casserole need to be refrigerated?

Yes! If there are leftovers of corn casserole, put them in a storage container or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Can I freeze a corn casserole?

For the best textured casserole, I would not recommend making this in advance and freezing the entire casserole to reheat later. If you have leftovers, they will freeze okay if you store it in an airtight container.

Can I make this with two boxes of Jiffy and one can of cream of corn and one can of corn? In order to make it more corn-bready? But maybe the same amount of sour cream?

One of my favorite recipes to bring to the holidays! I always add a little bit of sugar, and some freshly shredded cheddar cheese of course! Our families always love it. It’s also good to add diced bell peppers to.
