Jiffy Corn Casserole Is A Classic American Comfort Food
All across the country, every year on the “big” holidays, especially Thanksgiving, you’ll see a Jiffy corn casserole on the table. This tasty casserole is always popular at potlucks and all family gatherings for two reasons; it’s easy to make and it is 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 Ever-Popular Jiffy 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 drain and add a can of whole-kernel corn. That’s it!
If you want to add anything, just stir it in before you bake 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.
When you have mixed everything together, pour the mixture 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 set, but still be soft and spoonable.
Jiffy 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.

Their original product was a baking mix for muffins that could be made quickly and easily, hence the name “Jiffy.”
