Food History

Corn casserole, also known as corn pudding or spoonbread in some regions, is a staple in American cuisine, particularly popular in the South and during holiday gatherings like Thanksgiving. Its roots can be traced back to Native American dishes adapted by settlers to include available ingredients like dairy and baking mixes.

Recipe Discussion

The recipe begins by combining two types of corn—whole kernel and cream style—with beaten eggs, which help bind the ingredients together. Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix adds a slightly sweet flavor and a more substantial texture to the dish. Sour cream and melted butter are incorporated for richness, making the casserole moist and creamy. Diced onion, salt, and pepper are added for additional flavor. The mixture is baked in a loaf pan until golden and set, creating a dish perfect for scooping alongside a main course.

Serving Suggestions

Corn Casserole is ideally served warm as a side dish. It pairs excellently with barbecued meats, poultry, or a holiday turkey. It’s also a great complement to vegetarian main courses, like grilled portobello mushrooms or stuffed bell peppers, providing a hearty element to balance lighter dishes.

Preparation Tips

  • Mixing Ingredients: Combine the ingredients thoroughly to ensure the corn mix is evenly distributed, which helps achieve a consistent texture in every bite.
  • Baking Time: Check the casserole towards the end of baking; it should be set in the middle and golden brown on top. Cover it with aluminum foil if it browns too quickly to prevent over-browning.
  • Variations: Feel free to add shredded cheese, green chilies, or red bell peppers to the mixture before baking for added color and flavor.
  • Make Ahead: This casserole can be assembled a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to bake, making your meal preparation easier.

I make this every single year for Christmas. Family and friends love it. The can of corn always raised a question. Add the water? After much research and testing, I have found the answer to be yes. What a wonderful website. Thank you! (My Mom has this exact same box)
