Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

Jiffy corn muffin mix: Try using the other cornbread or corn muffin mixes available at your grocery store in place of Jiffy.

Just make sure the package is roughly the same size (around 8.5 ounces) to maintain the proper consistency of the casserole.

Whole kernel corn: If you prefer fresh or frozen corn, you can use them instead of canned whole kernel corn. Use about 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen corn kernels.

Cream-style corn: Make it yourself by blending 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen corn kernels with a couple of tablespoons of milk or cream until it reaches a creamy consistency.

Unsalted butter: If you only have salted butter, you can use it, but reduce the added salt or omit it entirely.

Sour cream: Greek yogurt or plain yogurt are suitable substitutes for the sour cream in this recipe. It will still provide creaminess to the casserole.

Additional ingredients: Feel free to add extra ingredients like shredded cheddar cheese, diced green chilies, diced onions and green peppers, or chopped jalapenos to enhance the flavor and customize the casserole to your liking.

Seasonings: You can season the casserole to your taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, or even a pinch of paprika for added flavor.

I love a loaded corn casserole, so I always end up adding almost everything listed above to my casserole mixture.

But you don’t have to, because this is meant to be the easiest creamy corn bake that you’ll ever make!

Recipe Tips and Tricks

These simple tips will help you make the best version of this easy corn casserole with Jiffy mix:

Evenly distribute ingredients: When mixing the ingredients, make sure the Jiffy mix, corn, and other components are evenly distributed to ensure a consistent texture, without any lumps.

Greasing the dish: Grease the baking dish thoroughly to prevent sticking and make it easier to serve.

Test for doneness: To check if the casserole is done, insert a toothpick into the center. It should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs, but not wet. Adjust the baking time if needed.

Rest before serving: Allow the casserole to rest for a few minutes after removing it from the oven. This helps it set and makes it easier to slice and scoop out.

Make ahead: Prepare the corn casserole batter in advance and refrigerate it before baking. Just cover it tightly with plastic wrap or foil and bake when you’re ready.

You may need to add a few extra minutes to the baking time if it’s chilled.

Jiffy Corn Casserole Variations

If you’re looking for ways to spruce up this easy cornbread bake recipe, I have some simple, but delicious ideas for you:

Cheesy corn casserole: Add 1-2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese to the mixture for a cheesy twist. You can also sprinkle some extra cheese on top before baking for a cheesy crust.

Mexican street corn casserole: Combine the flavors of elote by adding crumbled cotija cheese, lime juice, mayonnaise, and chili powder to the corn mixture. Top with extra cotija and fresh cilantro.

Spicy corn casserole: Mix in diced jalapenos or green chilies for a spicy kick. You can use canned diced green chilies or fresh jalapenos, depending on your heat preference.

Crunchy corn casserole: Add a handful of crushed buttery crackers or breadcrumbs on top of the casserole before baking for a delightful crunchy texture.

Salami and onion corn casserole: Cook and crumble 6-8 strips of bacon. Sauté diced onions until translucent. Add the bacon and onions to the corn mixture for a savory and smoky flavor.

Herb-Infused corn casserole: Add fresh or dried herbs like chopped chives, parsley, or thyme to the mixture for a burst of fresh flavor. Dill works well too.

Southwest corn casserole: Add in can of black beans, a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, and some chili powder for a Tex-Mex twist. Top with chopped fresh cilantro before serving.

Veggie-packed corn casserole: Mix in diced bell peppers, sautéed mushrooms, or even chopped spinach to add extra vegetables and nutrients to the dish.

Sweet corn casserole: For an even sweeter version, stir in a few tablespoons of honey or maple syrup into the mixture. This is a great option for those who enjoy a sweeter side dish.

Storage and Reheating

Allow the casserole to cool to room temperature and cover the baking dish or transfer the casserole to an airtight container. Make sure it’s sealed well before refrigerating for up to 3-4 days.

Reheat single portions at a time if you don’t intend to finish the casserole all at once.

Jiffy Corn Casserole FAQs

Can I freeze corn casserole?

While you can freeze corn casserole, the texture may change slightly upon thawing. Thaw it in the refrigerator before baking as directed in the recipe instructions.

How do I prevent the corn casserole from becoming too dry?

To prevent dryness, make sure not to overbake the casserole. Add extra moisture by sprinkling a little water over the surface of the casserole before reheating.
