The Holidays are all about memories for me. Big family gatherings in Iowa with siblings and their families, huddling in small kitchens with loud people and a few opinions, sharing recent photos and milestones, welcoming new babies and spouses to the mix, and catching up about all the things in life.

So while road trips have become less as our families have grown, we still go back to what feels like home when planning our meals. A holiday meal at our home wouldn’t be the same without a good mixture of old and new. This Creamy Corn Casserole is definitely one of the old, and my guys always love when it’s on our menu.

Simple, semi-homemade, and with just a few ingredients, THIS one stays.

Ingredients Needed

This recipe requires only six ingredients.

  • Corn Muffin Mix – I use the Jiffy corn muffin mix. Two boxes for a large casserole, but you could cut this in half too.
  • Creamed Corn – Two cans of creamed corn.
  • Whole Corn – Two cans of whole sweet corn.
  • Sour Cream – I used 16 oz. of regular sour cream, but you could use light as well.
  • Eggs – Four large eggs!
  • Butter – One cup of butter, melted.

How to make the Best Creamy Corn Casserole:

Step 1
Mix ingredients. In a mixing bowl, combine the drained corn, creamed corn, and the cornbread. Add the beaten eggs, sour cream, and melted butter – and mix well.

Step 2
Add to a casserole dish. Pour the mixture into a 9×13 casserole dish and use a spatula to smooth to all sides.

Step 3
Bake casserole. Bake the corn casserole in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes, or until done.

This is double the recipe that’s in my mother’s hometown cookbook. We always make extra because the leftovers are fabulous too.

Recipe Tips

  • As an alternative, top the casserole with cheese, and bake!
  • You can make this casserole ahead of time, place in the refrigerator overnight, and bake the next day.
  • Leftovers are great for several days.
