Ingredients for Corn Casserole

This Jiffy corn casserole recipe is an easy holiday favorite, simply stir and bake.

Cornbread Mix – A box of Jiffy corn muffin mix is the perfect base for a fluffy easy corn casserole. You’ll need an 8.5 oz box for this recipe. Replace a box of Jiffy Mix with homemade jiffy mix.

Butter & Sour Cream – Melted butter adds richness and flavor, while sour cream is added for moisture.

Corn – Cream-style corn adds sweetness, while whole kernel corn adds texture. Canned, fresh, or frozen corn kernels will work.

Eggs – Eggs help hold it all together.
