Corn casserole with cream cheese is easily one of my family’s favorite side dish recipes during the holiday season. We usually make it every Thanksgiving, also Christmas and sometimes Easter.

It’s the perfect complement to a nice ham or turkey dinner. And just like our Mexican corn casserole, it has bacon too. Because we all know, bacon makes everything better!

We also make this corn casserole with Jiffy mix. It gives it a kind of breading but in a very moist, delicious sort of way, and it’s all mixed in with the rest of the ingredients.

What you end up with is a very creamy, flavorful, cheesy side dish you’ll likely add to your holiday menu from henceforth and forevermore.

If it’s more corn side dishes you’re looking for… Mexican corn on the cob, grilled corn on the cob, and Instant Pot corn are always a hit at the family dinner table.

Let’s talk about how to make this scrumptious corn casserole with bacon.

IS JIFFY CORN CASSEROLE THE SAME AS JIFFY CORN PUDDING?

Yes, it’s the same as corn pudding. You’re basically mixing a bunch of ingredients together to create a creamy side dish.

The casserole isn’t fully stable either, like a slice of corn bread would be. It requires you to spoon it onto your plate, versus eating with your hands.

INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED:

Keep in mind, all of the amounts you’ll need are in the printable recipe card below.

KITCHEN TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT YOU’LL NEED:

Cutting Board and Knife – for mincing the green onions and crumbling the bacon.

Saucepan – You’ll need a medium-sized saucepan to cook up the cream cheese mixture.

Heat Resistant Spatula – Works well for stirring and scraping the sides of the pan.

HOW TO MAKE CORN CASSEROLE

You can make corn casserole ahead of time and warm it up for your holiday dinner.

Before you get started mixing it up, be sure to cook the bacon and set it aside. You’ll need 5 to 6 slices, so you can even cook a little extra at breakfast and stick it in the fridge ’til you need it.

Also, you’ll need to mince the green onions and have those ready to go.

Here are the steps for making it…

  1. In a medium saucepan, add the cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, salted butter, sugar, and sour cream. Cook the mixture on low heat until the cream cheese is fully melted. Use a heat resistant spatula to constantly stir and keep the mixture from scorching.
  2. Then in a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese mixture, crumbled bacon, minced green onions, frozen corn, JIFFY Corn Muffin Mix (1/2 the box), salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour the casserole mixture into the greased baking dish, making sure it’s evenly spread throughout the dish, and bake according to the instructions in the recipe card below.
  4. Finally, add shredded cheese to the top of the casserole, and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Serve the deliciously cheesy corn casserole while warm and enjoy! It’s so good!

IS CORN CASSEROLE GLUTEN-FREE?

It’s not gluten-free if made with ordinary Jiffy mix. BUT… That doesn’t mean you can’t make it gluten-free.

In fact, I found a great recipe for Gluten Free Jiffy-Style Corn Muffin Mix over at Gluten Free on a Shoestring. I can’t wait to try substituting this cornbread mix for the Jiffy mix in my own casserole this Thanksgiving.

CAN YOU FREEZE CORN CASSEROLE?

Absolutely, yes, you can! The ingredients used in corn casserole are all pretty conducive to freezing.

Just be sure to store it in an airtight container to prevent freezer burn. A baking dish with a lid works really well for this.

  1. Can this recipe be converted for a crockpot or instant pot? I am taking a corn casserole to our family Thanks and Giving where there is no oven for baking. Sounds delicious and very easy to make!

    • Hi Diane, I’m actually working on converting it. I know water would need to be added for the pressure cooker, but I’m not really sure how much. I don’t think you’d need to change much at all for the slow cooker. I was thinking of doing the same thing this Thanksgiving.

  2. How could I adjust the recipe if I wanted to use the whole box of Jiffy Mix? I hate having 1/2 boxes of things. They tend to go stale or unused. The recipe sounds delicious though.

    • Hey Wendy, you could probably just use the whole box; but the casserole will likely be a bit drier in texture. The only other way to do it would be to maybe double the entire recipe and make a giant casserole or even 2 casseroles, maybe freeze one for later.

  3. Hello!! Recipe calls for frozen corn. Do use corn right out of the freezer or do you have to thaw the corn? Thank you!
