What’s Up, Hungry People

My fiancé constantly asks for creamed corn casserole, no matter the season. If he’s lucky, I’ll cave and whip up this easy creamed corn dish – with a little help from a box mix.

In truth, my fiancé really just wants creamed corn – the kind that comes straight from the can – but he always asks for creamed corn casserole. Whenever I ask, “Are you sure you don’t mean creamed corn?” he insists, no, he wants the casserole – that is, until he comes to make a plate and realizes that he did actually mean creamed corn.

Personally, I prefer the casserole over creamed corn; whereas, he would prefer creamed corn without the casserole. That whole story is to say, this casserole is the best of both worlds.

The creamed corn is held together lightly by boxed cornbread mix – and the addition of Greek yogurt adds a bit of moisture that tricks you into thinking it’s only creamed corn, in cornbread form.

If you’re lost, just make the recipe. You won’t regret it – whether you prefer creamed corn OR creamed corn casserole.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Creamed corn: Provides the creamy texture and sweet corn flavor.
  • Butter: Adds richness and helps bind the casserole.
  • Plain Greek yogurt: Keeps the casserole moist and adds a slight tang.
  • Brown sugar: Adds a hint of sweetness.
  • Egg: Acts as a binder to hold everything together.
  • Jiffy cornbread mix (or mix of choice): Gives structure to the casserole.
  • Salt & pepper: Season to taste.

Let’s Cook

First things first, preheat your oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, gather all your ingredients except for the Jiffy mix. This step is all about mixing well until everything is incorporated. Once you’re satisfied, go ahead and stir in the Jiffy mix until it’s just combined. Don’t worry if the batter looks lumpy; it’s supposed to be that way!

Prepare the Dish

Next up, grease a 9×9 square dish. This will help our casserole come out smoothly and keep it from sticking. Pour the batter into the baking dish and give it a gentle tap on a solid surface. This helps release any air bubbles lurking in the mix.

Bake Time

Slide that dish into the oven and let it bake for 15-25 minutes. Here’s a little tip: start checking every 5 minutes after the 15-minute mark. You’re looking for a golden brown top and a center that’s cooked through.

Let It Set

Once it’s out of the oven, let the casserole sit for about 10 minutes. This resting period lets it finish cooking and makes it easier to slice and serve.

Tips & Troubleshooting

  • Check for doneness: Use a toothpick inserted into the center. If it comes out clean, the casserole is ready. This ensures your casserole isn’t undercooked.
  • Avoid overmixing: When adding the Jiffy mix, stir just until combined. Overmixing can make the casserole tough instead of tender.
  • Resting period: Don’t skip the 10-minute rest after baking. It helps the casserole set and makes slicing neater.
  • Baking dish size: Using a 9×9 dish is ideal. A larger dish might make the casserole too thin, while a smaller one can make it too thick and affect cooking time.
  • Customize it: Feel free to add a handful of cheese or some diced jalapeños for an extra kick. Just mix these in with the wet ingredients before adding the Jiffy mix.
