CORN CASSEROLE WITH JIFFY MIX
What makes this corn casserole recipe truly is easy is that it’s a corn casserole with jiffy mix as one of the main ingredients. No need to make it complicated here! If you don’t have jiffy mix, you can also make this corn casserole without jiffy mix by mixing together your own.
Another ingredient I really enjoy in this corn casserole bake is the green onions. It adds a very subtle flavor that everyone will love! I’ve also heard of corn casserole being made with other things such as cheese, sugar, bacon, peppers, and more. Experiment and see what you can come up with!
EASY THANKSGIVING SIDE DISH
This corn casserole really is an amazing side dish for Thanksgiving. If you’ve never tried including this on your Thanksgiving menu, I highly recommend it! It goes so well with turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and of course some sweet potato casserole too.
But if you’re not sold on the idea of it being included for a Thanksgiving side dish, it also pairs well with a classic chili recipe on a cold winter evening. While classic cornbread is delicious, this corn casserole recipe is a great alternative to mix things up.
But let’s get to the recipe for corn casserole already, shall we?

Yes! With this recipe, you can use any cornbread mix you find at your local grocery store. Alternatively, you can attempt a homemade version using flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and oil.
CAN I MAKE CORN CASSEROLE WITHOUT CREAMED CORN?
The creamed corn adds a delicious flavor and texture so I wouldn’t recommend it. But if you absolutely have to, use standard corn, milk, and cornmeal.
