Corn Casserole is one of my favorite sides during the holidays or at potlucks during any time of the year. It is the easiest recipe to throw together and can be prepared with various ingredients mixed in. Me? I like it in its simplest form, with mainly cheese, corn and corn bread. Mmmm…mmmm…good!
Some people like to top their corn casserole with cheese, but I like to stir it into the mix instead. It’s really just a preference thing, so you can decide. I just don’t like to cover up the yummy crackly corn bread with greasy looking melted cheese. But, hey, I’m not going to try and sway your opinion.
A favorite of ours not only during the holidays but year round, too!
- 1 (15 1/4 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1 (14 3/4 oz) can cream-style corn
- 1 (8 oz) package Jiffy corn muffin mix
- 1 cup sour cream
- 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9- by 9-inch baking pan or a 2 quart casserole dish.
Mix together the corn, Jiffy, sour cream and butter in a large bowl. Stir in the cheese. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes, or until golden brown and set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Note: You can bake for a shorter time in a 9x13, but the texture will be different than baking in the 9x9 or 2 quart casserole. The 9x13 will be thin slices where the 2 quart casserole produces more of a corn pudding. Either way is delicious.
