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.
Who has tried it in a Crock-Pot??
Absolutely love this jiffy cornbread casserole and my family just raves about I have to make a double batch for every holiday. Absolutely! Love, jiffy cornbread mix
Love this recipe! For a kick I do half Zatarain’s Cheddar Jalapeño Cornbread Mix and handful of shredded cheddar cheese and it is SOOOO GOOD. Cook the same amount of time! Always a hit.
Could I substitute cottage cheese for the sour cream??
Did anyone make this as muffins?
Once refrigerated and going to reheat the next day. After leaving it out to warm for an hour, how long do I re-bake it?
Can I put it all together the night before and cook it in the morning?
Can you make it a day ahead?
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?
Can one substitute cream cheese for sour cream if needed?
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.
Fourth year making this, thank you so much. I add cheese like your suggestion and it’s great.
I make this regularly but add the cheese, honey, and 1 egg. A combo I didn’t see up there lol
This was a huge hit at a group dinner recently. Everyone took seconds – I doubled it and baked 55 mins. in a 9×11 pan. Next time, I’ll cut back on the butter if I double. Added some black pepper. Definitely a crowd pleaser!!
Made the recipe for the first time. Melted the butter in Microwave but forgot to add it. Added the eggs and the sugar a little less than a 1/4 cup 3/4 cup sour cream (All I had in the fridge) Didn’t need the butter turned out amazing
