This no-fail corn 5 ingredient corn casserole recipe is versatile and bakes up into a savory side dish that will complement any meal.

One of my favorite things about winter time is sitting down together as a family around the dinner table with a hot home-cooked meal. It’s this time of year when we like to pull out all of the classic family recipes such as meatloaf, baked chicken, Mexican soups….good, simple comfort food.


One of our favorite side dishes to have when we sit down together is this simple 5 Ingredient Corn Casserole.  This dish is so simple and versatile. Trust me…you won’t be able to mess it up!

There are many variations of this corn casserole. You can add egg, a touch of sugar, or cheese. But in our favorite? There are only 5 ingredients:

1. 1 can of corn

2. 1 can of creamed corn

3. 1 cup of sour cream

4.  1 stick of melted butter

5.  1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix

Easy, right?

Just look at it.  I’ll let you in on a little secret.  See that little bit of brown around the edges? That’s the best part.  Don’t tell anyone else though…you’re going to want to enjoy that part all for yourself!

In order to make this rich, buttery casserole, you’re going to throw all of those ingredients in a bowl and mix them up.  Transfer the mixture to a greased 8×8 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. The exact baking time will depend on the exact size pan you use, so just be sure to watch the casserole closely. You’ll know it is done when the center is completely set.

This dish is truly winter-time comfort food for our family.  We hope that it becomes a favorite for your family, too!

Want to try a variation?

Mix in 2 eggs….this creates just a bit more of a lighter corn casserole.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese….because cheese makes everything better, right?
Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sugar….this of course makes it a very sweet corn casserole. If you add the eggs and sugar, it almost takes like a corn cake and could be eaten for dessert!
