How Do You Make Corn Casserole?

This corn casserole recipe starts with a box of cornbread mix, which you mix with canned sweet corn, sour cream, eggs, creamed corn and melted butter in a large bowl. These ingredients form the base of the casserole. The next step is add in your flavoring agents which include bacon, cheddar cheese, green onions and red bell peppers. Pour the mixed batter into a prepared baking dish and bake it until the casserole is golden brown. Garnish the casserole with toppings. Cut it into squares, then serve and enjoy.

Tips For Corn Casserole

  • I recommend grating your own cheese for this recipe. The bags of pre-shredded cheese at the grocery store contain anti-caking agents and other preservatives and the cheese doesn’t melt as smoothly as the freshly grated type.
  • Feeding a crowd? You can double this corn casserole recipe and bake it in a 9″ x 13″ dish.
  • If you’re looking to save a few calories, you can substitute low fat sour cream. The recipe will still be delicious.
  • People most commonly make this recipe withJiffy mix. If your store does not carry Jiffy, any box of cornbread or corn muffin mix that’s the same weight will work just fine.
  • You can assemble this recipe up to one day before you plan to bake it. Simply store the covered casserole dish in the fridge until you’re ready to put it in the oven. You may need to add a few extra minutes to the cook time due to starting with a cold casserole.

Quick Tip

Fresh or frozen corn kernels can be substituted for the canned corn.

Recipe FAQs

Can you freeze corn pudding?

You can freeze this corn casserole for up to 2 months. Feel free to freeze the entire casserole. You can also cut it up into squares and individually wrap the squares in foil or plastic and then place them in a bag or airtight container.

Does corn casserole need to be refrigerated?

I recommend refrigerating corn casserole leftovers from this casserole as it contains highly perishable ingredients such as meat, cheese and dairy. The casserole will stay fresh at room temperature for up to one hour. You can refrigerate it for up to 3 days.

What is a substitute for creamed corn?

You can make your own homemade substitute for creamed corn. Simply take a can of corn kernels and place it in a bowl with 1/3 of the liquid from that can. Next stir in a teaspoon of sugar and a tablespoon of flour. When you mix it all together, you have a good creamed corn substitute.
