Quick and Comforting Corn Casserole

This Corn Casserole Recipe is one of our favorite side dishes. A cornbread base is filled with creamed corn, fresh herbs, and butter then baked until golden. 

This is the perfect Thanksgiving dinner side next to roast turkey.

An Easy Favorite

This recipe has been around pretty much forever. Its made with Jiffy cornbread muffin mix and comes out so moist, buttery, and sweet.

This dish uses just a few ingredients and the prep is quick and easy! You can mix the ingredients well ahead of time and bake just before serving.

If you need to free up the oven, bake this cornbread casserole in advance and and pop it in the oven to reheat while the turkey rests.

If you haven’t had corn casserole before, you are going to love it. Corn Pudding is similar but has a more custard type texture while this corn casserole is a bit more similar to a cornbread texture but softer.

To Make Ahead

This recipe can be made ahead of time and baked. Cool completely and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 2 days.

Allow to sit at room temperature for 30-60 minutes. Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

How To Make Corn Casserole (overview)

Corn casserole is probably the easiest dish you are going to whip up for turkey dinner. This cream corn casserole also includes corn for texture.

  1. Mix the ingredients (per recipe below)
  2. Pour into a casserole dish
  3. Bake it for about 45-55 minutes (it bakes perfectly in the toaster oven too).

I like to add a little butter on top as it comes out of the oven, and some parsley for added color.  Add in your favorites including cheese, herbs, bacon or jalapenos.

To Cook in a Crock Pot (or Slow Cooker)

Much like Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Crock Pot Stuffing, this recipe can easily be adapted for the Crock Pot if your oven is full.

The cooking time can vary slightly but 2-3 hours on high should work. Once it is cooked, just unplug the slow cooker or set it to warm.

This is the perfect side along with stuffing, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.
