- Combine the wet ingredients first before adding the corn muffin mix, that way you won’t overmix.
- Don’t open the oven door during baking because heat will escape, lowering the temperature of the oven and extending the baking time.
- We use a baking dish that’s a bit larger than needed to get a thinner layer of corn casserole. Using a smaller dish will result in a thicker layer that will take longer to bake.
- The cooking time is a guide, the actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of the corn casserole. You will know it is done when the center is set. It will not jiggle when you move the baking dish.
Preheat oven to 350°F
Melt the butter in a large bowl (or add the melted butter to a large bowl). Then add the creamed corn, corn, eggs, and sour cream to the bowl. Stir well to combine. Next, add the corn muffin mix, sugar, and salt.
Coat the casserole dish lightly with cooking spray or oil. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and smooth out into an even layer.
Bake the casserole for 40-50 minutes or until the center is set and does not jiggle when you move the dish.
Remove from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before serving.
Enjoy the sweet corn casserole. Other simple side dishes that will also go great on your holiday table include green bean casserole, this great brussels sprouts casserole and a sweet potato casserole that’s always a crowd-pleaser.
Make ahead and storing
Can you make this creamy corn casserole ahead of time? Yes, you can. Prepare the ingredients and combine them 1 day ahead. Cover well with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator prior to baking to get the chill out of the dish. Some bakeware does not do well with extreme temperature changes like going from the refrigerator to a hot oven.
Store leftover casserole in an airtight container, in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
