Corn casserole is one of the most popular side dishes served at holiday gatherings. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and it compliments most any meal.
This recipe calls for just a few basic ingredients. Jiffy corn muffin mix can be found at almost every grocery store, and often at the local dollar store. I have actually even seen it stocked at a neighborhood gas station convenience store!
However, if you are in a pinch, and don’t have time to run to the store, you can make your own corn muffin mix. Mix up a little cornmeal with flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and you are all set!
You can also make corn casserole in an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker to save space in your oven!
This corn casserole recipe calls for both canned sweet corn and creamed corn. I used to dread the evening meals as a kid that creamed corn was served. It was something about the creamy texture of creamed corn that made it unappetizing to me.
However, the moisture and texture in the creamed corn is perfect for this recipe!
You will want to make sure that you drain the canned corn, but not the creamed corn. You need that creamy liquid to make sure the corn muffin mix is cooked perfectly.
If you want to double the recipe, be sure to bake it in a dish that would allow for about the same thickness of the original recipe.
For instance, if you are doubling the ingredients, you should use a 12 inch square pan or a 9×13 rectangular baking dish. This will allow the dish to cook at around the same time as the original recipe.
