This simple Jiffy Corn Casserole with Cheese recipe is perfect for family gatherings and days you need a quick side dish!

Even though my kids are all grown family is still my number one priority. With my divorce Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays and traditions look different and this new season has brought both healing and brokenness.

I’ve always believed gathering around the table for a home cooked meal was a priority. I miss those days when my table was full, whether I made a family favorite or we ordered pizza.

My love for Jiffy Cornbread mixes is no secret! For years the number one post on my blog was my Jiffy Cornbread with creamed corn! With 350+ comments on ways to add to my basic recipe, I knew my readers truly loved it!

Is this Jiffy corn casserole recipe the same thing as corn pudding?

I realize that many people call this recipe corn pudding rather than cheesy corn casserole. Corn casserole is a holiday staple in the Southern and Midwestern United States, but it is less common dish in the rest of the world.

Basically these are two words for the same basic dish. I think of creamy corn casserole with a firmer texture and corn pudding as softer. Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you call it, this recipe is delish!

Substitutions or Additions

The one thing about a simple family recipe like this one is you can easily substitute or add on ingredients your specific family enjoys.

Sprinkle a little bit of chopped green onion on top for flavor and and prettiness.

If you don’t have canned corn just use frozen. I would thaw ahead of time and then dry with a paper towel so the corn doesn’t add too much liquid.

If you only have one type of corn just use two cans of it!

Have a sweet tooth like me? Just sprinkle a little sugar into the mixture and it’ll taste more like a dessert!

You can always mix it up with the cheese. If you like it spicy try a pepper jack cheese. If you want it a little more mild use a mild cheddar or even shredded provolone or Swiss. For a little more spice add green chiles or even jalapeños.

If you don’t have sour cream on hand you can substitute cream cheese for a thicker and tangier taste.

Top Tips

You can assemble this recipe ahead of time (perfect for a holiday meal!) and just cook in the baking dish right before serving.

Storage

One note you’ll want to remember: refrigerate after making and store in an airtight container! I kinda forgot this and we ate on it a couple days. Nobody got sick but I wouldn’t chance it since there’s dairy in it!

  1. I can’t eat corn due to my allergies, but my family makes this every Thanksgiving. They love it. You did a great job, looks delicious.

  2. This looks yummy! My favourite family recipe is my grandmother’s chicken soup; it’s like a warn hug – lol!

  3. Your corn recipe sounds like something we would really enjoy Marty. Nothing beats good old fashioned comfort food and a fur baby cuddle or two. Thanks for the recipe, I’ve pinned it so we can give it a try later this week.
