Paula Deen’s Corn Casserole

It doesn’t get much easier than this dump and go recipe from Paula Deen. This side dish is perfect for the holidays and goes with SO many of my favorite dinner recipes.

Ingredients

See recipe card at the bottom of the post for quantities and full instructions.

  • Creamed Corn
  • Whole Kernel Sweet Corn– Don’t forget to drain it!
  • Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • Sour Cream
  • Butter
  • Cheddar Cheese– Buy a block and shred it yourself. It’s creamier and has better flavor.

How to Make it

This Corn Casserole recipe can be made in the oven or in the Crock Pot:

Oven Method:

Combine all of the ingredients except for the cheese.

A mixing bowl before and after mixing ingredients for corn casserole

Place in a lightly greased 9 x 13 casserole dish or a 10-inch cast iron skillet.

Bake uncovered at 350°F for 45 minutes.

Top with cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the top is golden.

Let stand for 5 minutes prior to serving.

**An alternative method is to top the unbaked casserole with cheese right away, and bake it (covered), for 55-60 minutes. Paula’s method is as described above, but I have done it both ways with equal success.

Crock Pot Method

  • Combine all ingredients except for the cheddar cheese. Be sure to drain the whole kernel corn first. Add it to a lightly greased Crock Pot.
  • Cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4.
  • Add the shredded cheddar during the last 20 minutes of cooking.
  • Ensure the center is firm and set prior to serving.

Make-Ahead Method

This is an easy recipe to make up to 2 days ahead of time. Here’s how:

  • Combine all ingredients except for the cheese and place in casserole dish.
  • Bake covered at 350° for 50 minutes, let it cool, and refrigerate.

When ready to serve:

  • Add the shredded cheese, cover it, and bake it at 300° for 10 minutes to warm it up.
  • Bake again, uncovered at 350° for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve.

Adding Sugar

-If you prefer a sweeter corn casserole, you can add up to 2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar to the mix, although the cornbread mix does have some sweetness to it already.

Storing Leftovers

-Store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

-You can freeze this for up to three months, but it tastes best when eaten fresh.

  1. We tried this fantastic recipe for Easter Sunday .. it was such a hit My family including my 88 year old father said make that again any time not just for Easter… he really enjoyed it obviously.
    Thanks to Stephanie our Cozy Cook for these EASY TASTY and FANTASTIC recipes she shares
    I have tried a few now and love them all an so does my family
    We did not have Jiffy mix here in Canada or couldn’t find it so i used a cornmeal mix that I found at a specialty store and it worked out for me .

    • You’re very welcome Suzie!!! I’m so happy it was such a hit, especially for your 88 year old father!❤️ Luckily you were able to use cornmeal mix! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!

  2. When adding jif muffin mix, do you still add eggs and the milk?

  3. A favorite of my whole family.

  4. Can this be doubled? If so, how long to bake and what temperature?

  5. Everything Paula Deen makes is good

  6. Whole family loved it! I think I might mix the cheese in next time, rather than on top.

  7. Can this be made using Famous Dave’s Cornbread mix instead of Jiffy Mix?

  8. I have made this recipe many times. It’s a keeper and a make again and again. I have also shared the recipe to my friends. Thank you Paula Deen…miss you.

    • Thanks so much for the review Marie!😃 I’m happy to hear this continues to be a success for you!

    • Loved it! I made a double recipe for a friend. Then made a single recipe. I cooked a pound of Jimmy Dean sausage with sauteed onion, and placed it in the bottom of the pan, then poured the recipe over it. Great addition for brunch or snack!

  9. What constitutes a “stick of butter”?
