Baked corn casserole is a family favorite at our house for the holidays and beyond! Sweet corn baked into a hearty casserole is perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or just a family dinner!
A Favorite Family Recipe
With this being my first Christmas away from my family in my entire 28 years on this planet I’m feeling a little bit nostalgic.
There are certain things that are a given in our family for holidays. My grandmother’s sticky buns for breakfast on Christmas morning, Santa leaving presents in wooden train cars made by my grandfather instead of stockings, and this baked corn served at every family dinner for as long as I can remember.
Baked Creamy Corn
I’m not sure how to describe this recipe other than a mix between creamy creamed corn and a corn casserole but the flavor is insane and everyone loves it. Even our picky eater has at least two helpings of this whenever the entire family gets together for dinner.
Like when I was visiting Virginia last month and we had PA Dutch chicken and waffles, naturally we had to serve this baked corn casserole, too.
While we serve this pretty much whenever we’re all in the same house it’s definitely a holiday must-have.
Can you make baked corn casserole in the slow cooker?
I tried making it in the crock pot last year and it just. Just no. It lost that crunchy crust and didn’t hold together like it does when you bake it so it was running all over the place.
No one was a big fan. The flavors were there but the texture was all wrong and we just couldn’t wrap our minds around it. I guess we’re particular that way.
Can you make it with Jiffy mix or cornbread mix?
Yes, you can. My recipe is made entirely from scratch, with flour, sugar, butter, milk, and eggs. This recipe is how my grandmother made it and our family adores the smooth texture of the casserole. Jiffy mix has a rougher texture – cornbread is gritty like that. Some people make a similar dish and call it “corny cornbread” or “corn pudding casserole” or “corn bake.”
If you want to save a little time, use a box of Jiffy mix instead. The Jiffy website has a recipe that you can follow – it has sour cream in it and no added sugar. So the flavor will be more savory than sweet.
So if you need a new side dish for a family dinner this year then try my grandmother’s baked corn casserole and you won’t be disappointed!
