This no-fail 5 ingredient jiffy corn casserole recipe is versatile and bakes up into a savory side dish that will complement any meal.
When you sit down to a comforting dinner, whether pot roast, pork chops or grilled chicken, what side dishes do you make? This corn casserole recipe is easy and one of our favorite side dishes to make for everything from a weeknight dinner to a holiday meal.
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.
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.
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.
In order to make this rich, buttery casserole, there are only 2 steps:
This dish is truly winter-time comfort food for our family. We hope that it becomes a favorite for your family, too!

Want to try a variation of traditional corn casserole?
Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.
Add ½ to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?
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!
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.**
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.
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.
Yes! If there are leftovers of corn casserole, put them in a storage container or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
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.
I mix this together with shredded cheese and layer it over chili in a 9×10. So good!
question can the box of jiffy mix still be used if it’s pass it use by date?
This was a hit at our Thanksgiving family dinner. My mom said she doesn’t usually like corn casserole but this was to die for. Making it again as a request for Christmas dinner!
Easter dinner my friend’s son (he has lots of money) decided he would hire a chef to prepare a leg of lamb dinner and all the fixings for 13 of the family. I had prepared this jiffy corn casserole for a prior family gathering so the hostess requested that I bring it for this meal as everyone enjoyed it. Well, there were lots of people preparing the meal in the kitchen and taking photos of all the presentations. So the meal was cold when served and only a teaspoon of gravy for the overcook leg of lamb but everyone praised… Read more »
My whole family LOVED this fir thanksgiving so Im making it fir xmas too😁
I tripled recipe for Christmas party, I added a block of cream cheese and it was AMAZING!!! It was heaven in earth
This is such a good recipe love it
Its a really good recipe but I feel like no matter how long I end up cooking it, its still gooey and looks/feels undercooked. Maybe its just me? Still really tasty though!
This recipe is perfect. Before serving it, I added a light layer of sugar (for extra sweetness) on top and torched it to make a brulee to crack up. It was a delicious Corn Brulee!
I have made this a total of 5 times. First time I followed recipe exactly and ended up having to cook well over the recipe time. I started putting in at 425 same size pan as recipe and still have to cook over 2.5 hrs to get it even remotely close to done.
Had this several times. Made it less than five times. Always a hit.
