This stupid easy Creamed Corn Casserole recipe is made with a store bought Jiffy cornbread mix, and that's not an apology. It is SO good! If you grew up with this Thanksgiving side dish you know what I'm talking about. It is creamy, corny, custardy, and sweet. It's the perfect compliment to a holiday meal, but I also love serving it with a bowl of chili!
Sweet Corn Casserole: Add 1/2 cup or even 3/4 cup sugar instead of 3 tablespoons
For a cake-like texture, rather than custard texture: add 2 eggs. This makes the casserole a little more fluffy and taller. This is a VERY common addition to corn casserole, but I prefer it without the eggs. It's good both ways though!
Add cheese: how can you go wrong? Omit the 3 tablespoons sugar and stir in 1 and 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Sprinkle another 1/2 cup cheese on top. You could even go wild and add in some chopped jalapanos...or some cooked bacon!
Make it in the slow cooker: You can make this recipe as written in a 4-quart slow cooker, or double the recipe and make it in a 6 quart slow cooker. Be sure to spray the edges. Cook on high for 2 hours, or low for 3-4 hours. Super handy for Thanksgiving when you need your oven for the turkey!
To make the second version I tried that you see in the photos: Follow the recipe as directed making these changes: reserve half of the sour cream. Add 2 eggs. Mix it all together, then dollop the remaining 1/2 cup sour cream on top and swirl in with a knife. It will take a couple minutes longer to bake.
