All across the country, every year on the "big" holidays, especially Thanksgiving, you'll see this favorite corn casserole on the table. It's made with Jiffy corn muffin mix! This tasty casserole is always popular at potlucks and family gatherings for two reasons: it's easy to make and absolutely delicious.

The ingredients in this dish are basic and readily available, and you can stir up a batch in five minutes without breaking a sweat. There are only five ingredients in it: a can of whole-kernel corn, a can of cream-style corn, a stick of butter, a couple of eggs, a box of Jiffy corn muffin mix, and some sour cream.

How To Make This Favorite Corn Casserole

I like to use my Pampered Chef Batter Bowl to make this recipe because it is microwave-safe. Begin by melting a stick of butter in the microwave, then stir in the cream corn, the sour cream, the corn muffin mix, and the eggs. Mix that together until it's well blended, then add a drained can of whole-kernel corn. That's it!

If you want to add anything, stir it before baking it. You can add shredded cheese, some green chiles, garlic, or chopped green onions if you like. In my opinion, it's perfect, just as it is. This casserole was promoted by the Jiffy company on little tear-off recipe sheets in grocery stores back in the 1960s.

Back then, the Jiffy company called it "Corn Bowl." It was later renamed "Spoonbread," a fitting name because you dish it up with a spoon, preferably a big one, onto your plate.

After mixing everything, pour it into a greased baking dish and bake it at 350 degrees for about thirty or thirty-five minutes. The top should be golden brown, and the middle should be set but still soft and spoonable.

This favorite corn casserole is a traditional side dish for holiday dinners and potlucks, and it's especially good at picnics where the main entree might be barbecue, chicken, or ham. It is just as good at room temperature as it is hot.

If you take Jiffy corn casserole to a potluck, you will probably come home with an empty dish. This wonderful Jiffy corn casserole is as popular today as it was when it was first introduced and has stood the test of time through at least three generations.

Why I Love The Story Of Jiffy Foods

Jiffy corn muffin mix

Jiffy Foodservice company is a family-owned company that produces baking mixes and other food products. The company was founded in 1930 in Chelsea, Michigan, by Mabel Holmes and her husband, Howard. Their original product was a baking mix for muffins that could be made quickly and easily, hence the name "Jiffy."

If you love good old-fashioned American success stories built on doing the right things, you will love this article by their CEO "Howdy" Holmes. It makes me want to make Jiffy Cornbread casserole every week!

Jiffy sells more than fifty-five percent of the muffin mixes in America and doesn't spend a dime on advertising; they treat and pay their employees well and are less obsessed with profit than doing right by consumers.

Today, Jiffy is known for its wide range of baking mixes, including corn muffin mix, cake mix, pie crust mix, and more. The company prides itself on using high-quality ingredients and keeping its products affordable and accessible to consumers.

The Jiffy company has a long history of providing convenient and delicious baking mixes to consumers, and it has earned its place as a well-loved household name product across the country.
