Corn Casserole, a simple and delicious side dish that will pair well with most meals!   The flavor is sweet & savory, the texture is buttery, moist and tender – it’s really fantastic.  It’s similar to southern spoon bread or Chi Chi’s corn cake – this recipe is a basic starting point, you can customize it by adding shredded cheese or even a small can of chopped green chiles to add a spicy kick.  The Trader Joe’s Cornbread Mix is sweeter than Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix – so choose the mix according to your preference.

    Do you think I can use the Krusteaz mix from Costco and it should the same? Thanks!

      Hi Linda, if the mix is around 15-16oz, I think it should work fine for this recipe.

    Excited to make this for Thanksgiving! Do you think it will be fine to make overnight, refrigerate it, and reheat the whole pan the next day?

      Hi Annie, yup you can make this ahead of time, just underbake a little (30 mins) then you can reheat the next day.

    Hi, can this be made ahead of time?

      Yes, you can make this ahead of time. I would just slightly underbake it (maybe around 30 mins) – that way it won’t be overdone once you reheat it
