Why you should try this corn casserole recipe
Corn if often a quick and easy side dish to make, but when you’re looking to spruce it up a bit, making a creamed corn casserole is a great way to do it. This recipe only calls for a few pantry and refrigerator staples like creamed corn, sour cream, and Jiffy corn muffin mix.
And when it comes to preparing it, everything is tossed into a medium bowl, mixed into a creamy texture, and poured into the slow cooker. Just 2 short hours later and you’ll have an absolutely delicious, golden brown corn pudding casserole. Let’s get cooking!
- Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix: One box of jiffy cornbread mix is the perfect amount to yield good serving sizes.
- Eggs: Two large eggs are needed according to to box instructions and also used in corn casserole recipes to help as a binding agent.
- Salted butter: One stick melted butter not only adds flavor to this casserole dish but also helps with sticking.
- Whole kernel corn: Using canned corn makes it easier and adds texture and is one of the primary corn casserole ingredients.
- Cream corn: By adding two different types of corn, some people have nicknamed this double corn casserole. Adding both regular corn and creamed corn makes it a great recipe.
- Shredded cheddar cheese: To make sure the shredded cheese melts thoroughly, I recommend purchasing a block of cheese and shredding it yourself. Pre-shredded cheese often has a caking agent that prevents the cheese from melting all the way.
- Sour cream: Adding to the creamy texture, sour cream also enhances the flavor a bit.
Step One – In a medium or large bowl, combine the jiffy corn mix with all other ingredients.
Step Two – Stir to combine everything well.
Step Three – Pour the cornbread casserole into the slow cooker that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
Step Four – Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours or until the center is no longer jiggly and lightly browned on top. Serve and enjoy!
