Creamy Bacon Corn Casserole, made with JIFFY Corn Muffin Mix and cream cheese. One of our family’s favorite Thanksgiving side dish recipes.

Creamy Bacon Corn Casserole 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 use part of a JIFFY Corn Muffin Mix in our casserole, making it a Jiffy corn casserole. 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.

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

How to make the most delicious Creamy Bacon Corn Casserole with simple ingredients like cornbread and cream cheese. Favorite holiday side!

IS CORN CASSEROLE THE SAME AS CORN PUDDING?

My thought is this is probably 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 cornbread would be. It requires you to spoon it onto your plate, versus eating with your hands.

CAN I FREEZE CORN CASSEROLE?

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

You can make it ahead of time and warm it up for Thanksgiving dinner.

Tips for how to make Creamy Corn Casserole

  • Pre-heat the oven to 325°.
  • Cook the bacon and set aside. You’ll need 5 to 6 slices, so you could even cook a little extra at breakfast and stick it in the fridge ’til you need it.
  • Mince the green onions and set aside.

 

  • In a medium saucepan, add 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.

Creamy Bacon Corn Casserole is one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides. Creamy, cheesy, bacon goodness in a casserole dish. Yum!

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese mixture, crumbled bacon, minced green onions, frozen corn, JIFFY Corn Muffin Mix (1/2 a box), salt, and pepper.
  • Spray a 13″x9″ baking dish with cooking spray.

 

  • Pour the casserole mixture into the baking dish, making sure it’s evenly spread throughout the dish.
  • Bake at 325° for about 55 minutes or until the mixture is set.
  • Add shredded cheese to the top of the casserole, and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Serve this delicious baked corn casserole while warm and enjoy! It’s so good!

  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!
