If you are looking for the traditional corn casserole recipe with Jiffy, this isn’t it. However, this is an uber cheesy, ultra delicious corn casserole side dish with loads of corn kernels, oodles of cheese, and corn meal. Consistency wise, this recipe brings together regular corn meal (making it stand quite like corn bread over an ooey gooey casserole dish), but boxed Jiffy still works as a sweeter substitution.
If you are looking for an alteration of the same old corn casserole recipe (not hating, its my favorite in holiday times) this unique take on a delicious hometown Southern dish might just fit the bill.
Why you will love this cheesy corn casserole!
There is no doubt that some version of a classic corn casserole is on your list in the holiday season. In our home, we always assign this popular dish out to the kids because its just so easy to make. And while it IS my favorite dish in its original and rustic form, this new take with tons of cheese dials up the simple dish to an ultimate creamy cheese corn casserole that I know you will love!
Having variations of common dishes really help when holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas are so close together. That way, instead of just duplicating the menu, you get to stick with favorites without compromising the integrity of a dish everyone loves.
Just a note about the ingredient list below. You can substitute frozen (thawed) corn for regular ears of corn that you shuck. Its about 8 large ears to equal the 2 pounds of corn should you want to go the SUPER homemade corn casserole route.
- baking powder
- cayenne pepper
- frozen corn
- sour cream
- shredded Colby jack cheese
- grated Parmesan cheese
- green onions
How to Bake Cheesy Corn Casserole
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9×13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, pepper and cayenne. Mix well. Set flour mixture aside.
- Add half of the thawed corn and chopped onion to a food processor and pulse for 10 seconds.
- Add corn and onion mixture to bowl of flour mixture and mix all ingredients together well.
- Stir in remaining corn, sour cream, half of the shredded cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, eggs and butter. Mix well.
- Pour corn mixture into prepared baking dish and spread evenly.
- Sprinkle top of casserole with remaining shredded cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes or until slightly puffy and cheese is golden brown.
- Let casserole cool for 10 minutes before sprinkling with green onions and serving.
There is no reason that fresh Parmesan cheese cannot be added into this recipe.
I have not personally substituted Jiffy corn muffin mixed in this recipe yet but its on my radar to try in the near future. That doesn’t mean you cant try! After all, recipes are meant to be experimented with. If I was going to substitute, I would eliminate the cornmeal, baking soda and flour and substitute for 1 box of Jiffy. I make no guarantees it will “work” but in theory should be fine and provide a sweet taste.
The best cheese to use in this recipe is shredded cheddar, Colby jack or Monterey jack. If you want to bring some spice into this dish, try pepper jack instead.
