Easy Cream Corn Casserole 

I try to avoid using cake mixes, canned soups and other packaged products when I cook. But on the 4th of July, one of our neighbors brought her corn casserole recipe to the potluck gathering. We all wanted the recipe.

She laughed and said we wouldn’t believe how easy it was. Who doesn’t need more simple recipes in their repertoire?? As Thanksgiving approaches,  I decided to give this Jiffy corn casserole a trial run.

Thanksgiving Menu

Do you have a set Thanksgiving menu? I have a little room to play, but there are a few must-make dishes. There’s the turkey, of course, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. Spinach souffle is one vegetable side and the other is up for grabs! We have my great-grandmother’s fruit salad, which is loaded with whipped cream and marshmallows with enough fruit to earn the salad moniker. Dessert includes pumpkin pie and usually a chocolate pie, but any chocolate dessert will do. This year, this corn may be our second veggie, in the form of this Jiffy corn casserole!

Tips for Making This Corn Casserole Recipe

This is a pretty cut and dry recipe for a cream corn casserole. Mix everything together, dump and bake! But, as with all recipes, you can tweak it a bit.

  • Had I planned ahead, I would have frozen some fresh sweet corn cut off the cob. Indiana has marvelous local corn and it would definitely be a fabulous addition. It would need to be cooked first, plus the liquid that would have been added from the canned corn would need to be replaced.
  • Cheddar or Monterey jack cheese and a can of chopped green chiles would make this into a spicy corn casserole. Maybe not for Thanksgiving, but it sounds good to me! I’d probably cut down the added sugar with this adaptation.
  • Add an extra egg if you want a lighter, more souffle-like casserole.

What sides do you make for Thanksgiving?? We often have glazed carrots and I adore roasted brussels sprouts, but I’ve also had my eye on this Brussels Sprouts Salad and this Roasted Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower. So many delicious vegetables and preparations!

  1. As I sit here at O’Dark 30 with a nice strong cuppa… I’d be tempted to have this for breakfast too if it was in the house:@)

  2. Totally agree with Lynn above. Reading this post with a cuppa and thinking to myself this would be so good for breakfast. ok or well Thanksgiving too or side for an autumn dish. Love these make ahead recipes. Just pinned.

  3. I love surprise recipes like this. It looks wonderful! 

  4. My family doesn’t like for me to take too many liberties on Thanksgiving but I always throw a few new things into the mix–and I think I’ll have to add this casserole this year.  It sounds amazing!

  5. What a lovely addition to the Thanksgiving table. I would have thought sweet corn would be sweet enough without the added sugar but it probably adds texture too. I love your idea of adding the green chiles. We usually have turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes (or more recently, cauliflower mash, roasted brussels sprouts and cucumber salad (it’s Hungarian) but this casserole would make a very tasty addition.

  6. I love that golden crisp topping! This looks amazingly delicious and moreish, Liz.

  7. This is my sister’s favorite way to eat corn. It’s so good! Mom always had it on Thanksgiving and special holidays. I need to make it! Pinning!

  8. This recipe does sound simple to make. I think it may find a place on my Thanksgiving table as well.

  9. This casserole is my kind of comfort food. All I need is a little green salad to pair with it and I’m in heaven! So perfect for the holidays ahead too!

  10. This is one of those recipes that will become a family classic! Looks terrific, Liz!

  11. I found this recipe about 20 years ago and it’s always a big hit. It was in the early days of the internet and came from a recipe board that died (due to continual hacking) many years ago. It was the bomb….hate that it’s gone. The recipe title on that board was “Like Chi Chi’s Corn Cakes”. Now, we never had a Chi Chi’s where I live so I had no idea what they were like but once I took this somewhere people would beg me to bring it again. Mine didn’t have the sugar and instead of sour cream it had green onion dip! I used that for years but it has been impossible to find for a long time now even in the holiday season.

  12. Love simple recipes like this when there is so much to prepare. Of course I also love that they are knock your socks off delicious!

  13. Well, this takes me back. I’m not sure if it’s the same, but my mother used to make a sweet corn casserole and I know she used creamed corn and Jiffy mix. It was so good. What a great way to add some good old southern comfort to our holiday table. Thanks Liz!

  14. This would be a great dish for the holidays, easy to make and it tastes great . I like that. 

  15. Geez, such a great casserole xD I would love to try it as soon as possible because corn has been my favourite for ages!

  16. Corn is one of a few vegetables that our granddaughter Gabbi will eat without hesitation. Fingers crossed that she likes in prepared this way. If not, I’ll take her portion!
