Cornbread Casserole Recipes for Thanksgiving or any time

Tired of the usual dinner rolls to go along with your Thanksgiving feast?

Trying to sneak a veggie in to the too-picky toddlers, perverse pre-teens, or even the totally resistant teens?

Then below is the just the recipe for you.

This is a recipe that is recognizable to many since I believe it was first introduced by the Jiffy Muffin makers many years ago. I first tried this recipe at a cooking class that introduced new recipes as well as classic and easy recipes from the past. This cornbread casserole has been a hit at many of the potluck dinners I have attended. I always bring at least a dozen copies to every event. I rarely walk out with even 1 copy left.

Easy and great to make ahead to heat and serve. Can also share the oven with the turkey if you prefer to serve it fresh and hot right out of the oven.

This easy to make cornbread casserole recipe is ideal for other meals or occasion.

Good Food for Other Holidays and Events

Although I have have been known to take a corn casserole or two to someone's house for Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas, I most often take one to events or holidays during the spring and fall months. It really is delicious as a side dish to a barbeque cookout. Like my favorite accompaniments chicken and ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. Sound good?

Have you Tried Barbeque Ribs with Corn Casserole?

A Cornbread Casserole is Easy to Take Along to Potluck and Dish to a Pass Dinner

Like a Lasagna casserole, a pan of this doesn't spill and slosh. That makes it an idea dish to transport to other places in a insulated casserole carrier like mine made by Artic Zone. I like to take it right from the oven, seal it with foil or a silicone lid, and throw a handtowel on top for a little extra insulation. I then put it in the carrier right away to guaranteed it keeps warm for hours.

Recipe Variations

The basic recipe created by Jiffy does have a few variations.

This recipe that I have made for years shown above does not include eggs which would be good for those with egg allergies. I have also increased the temperature to 400°. Although all ovens do vary, I feel the increase in temperature firms up the middle of the bread to be less like a very wet bread pudding. If you like it even firmer for cutting individual servings for potluck dinners, I have also had great success in turning down the oven temperapture 25 degrees and cooking for an additional 15 minutes.

If you would prefer to use eggs, use the original recipe time of 35-40 minutes and 375° oven temperature may be suited to have the eggs set well.

Some versions change the types and quantity of corn. I think if you are missing one of the ingredients, you just might find a version to work with your pantry goods.

More variation of this recipe include the "kick it up a notch" additions like the egg bake version below with pimiento and cheddar cheese, and much more in the online recipe world including some with jalapeno hot peppers and/or extra creamy cheesy additions.

Savory and Sweet Cornbread Casserole Also Known as Corny Bread

1 package Jiffy corn bread mix

3/4 cup oil

1- 4 ounce can of pimientos, chopped

4 eggs

1 teaspoon garlic salt (Optional: For low sodium diets, use 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder)

2- 14.75 ounce cans cream style corn

1- 6 ounce package shredded sharp cheddar cheese (Reserve for topping)

Mix all together, (less cheese) and put in casserole dish or 9 x 13 inch.

Sprinkle cheese on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

For the quick and easy cornbread casserole, I have made this for so many years, I cannot remember. I do not see any eggs? There should be two in this casserole. For many years, I added the butter, but do not even do that now. It comes out beautifully without all the calories of a stick of butter.

Still a classic recipe I refer to often. Yum...

I experimented with corn products years ago and you reminded me I have to try again. Great looking lens, thumbs up:-)

What a great idea! I may improvise - depends on whether the cornbread mix contains products with sulfites, but the principle is great, even if you use home-made cornbread with it. Thank you!

When I was married to my ex, he insisted on cornbread for each dinner ... no sugar could be added. Since then, I make cornbread very rarely ... but these sure look tasty!
