    How to Make Jiffy Corn Casserole

    Melt the butter in the microwave. Then mix all of the ingredients together. Pour the mixture into a baking dish, then bake in a preheated oven for 50-55 minutes.

    TIP: Cooking time can vary by oven. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the casserole. If it comes out clean, the casserole is done.

    What to Serve with Corn Casserole

    It definitely deserves a place on your Thanksgiving and Christmas spreads.

    Some other good pairings include Chili or BBQ Ribs. It also goes great with southern foods like Brunswick Stew or our Southern Braised Chicken.

    Variations

    This recipe is for a basic version, but there are so many possibilities…

    • Add in a cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
    • It goes great with some crumbled bacon mixed in.
    • Many recipes include 2 eggs in the mixture. This creates a lighter, fluffier corn casserole.
    • For a sweeter version, add in 1/4-1/2 cup sugar. Try the basic version first, as it does get some sweetness from the Jiffy mix.
    • Add diced jalapeños for a spicy corn casserole.
    • Add chili powder, cilantro and cotija cheese for a Mexican Street Corn inspired casserole.

    Can You Make Corn Casserole without Jiffy?

    You sure can! In its place, use:

    • 2/3 cup flour
    • 1/2 cup yellow corn meal
    • 3 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

    Can You Make Corn Casserole in a Crock Pot?

    Though it won’t get the golden brown top, corn casserole is still great in a crock pot. This is a good option for holidays when the oven is already full.

    Simply add the mixture into the crock and cook for 2.5-3 hours on high.

    Leftovers and Storage

    You can refrigerate leftover corn casserole for 4-5 days. Either keep it in an airtight container, or cover the casserole dish with cling wrap
