Corn Casserole

This Corn Casserole recipe is a delightful blend of sweet and savory flavors, making it a perfect side dish for a variety of meals. It combines the heartiness of cornbread with the creaminess of sour cream and corn, resulting in a dish that’s both comforting and delicious.

Ingredients

  • Jiffy Cornbread Mix (1 box): A convenient, pre-mixed cornbread base that provides the perfect texture and corn flavor for the casserole.
  • Creamed Corn (1 can): Adds moisture, sweetness, and a creamy texture to the casserole.
  • Whole Kernel Corn (1 can), drained: Gives the casserole a delightful pop of texture and enhances the corn flavor.
  • Eggs (2): Act as a binding agent, helping to hold the casserole together while adding richness.
  • Butter (1 stick), melted: Contributes to the casserole’s richness and moist texture.
  • Sour Cream (1 Cup): Adds a tangy creaminess, balancing the sweetness of the corn.

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures a consistent cooking environment for the casserole.

  1. Prepare the Baking Dish: Lightly grease a medium-sized casserole dish. This step prevents sticking and helps in easy serving after baking.
  2. Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients Separately: In a large bowl, mix the Jiffy Cornbread Mix with the eggs and melted butter. Stirring these ingredients first ensures the eggs and butter are evenly distributed throughout the mix.
  3. Add Corn: Gently fold in the creamed corn and the drained whole kernel corn into the mixture. The varied textures of creamed and whole corn create a delightful mouthfeel.
  4. Incorporate Sour Cream: Lastly, add the sour cream to the mixture. This should be done gently to maintain the fluffy texture of the sour cream, which makes the casserole creamy and moist.
  5. Bake the Casserole: Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the casserole is golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool and Serve: Allow the casserole to cool slightly before serving. This resting period lets the casserole set, making it easier to cut into portions.
