Grandma's Southern Corn Casserole is a comforting Southern-style treat that can be enjoyed year round. This corn casserole is often made around the holidays as a side dish, but works well at summer BBQs too! This mostly-savory-slightly-sweet casserole is the best complement to a home-cooked meal. While it pairs well with turkey and ham at Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's just as tasty alongside some baked beans and fried chicken on a weeknight at home. This easy side dish recipe is definitely one to try!

Cooking Time55 min



  • 1 (15-1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14-3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 to 1 ½ cups shredded Mozzarella
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan or a 2-quart casserole dish.

  2. Mix together the corn, Jiffy, sour cream and butter in a large bowl. Then, stir in the cheese and pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 55 minutes, or until golden brown and set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.


You can bake for a shorter time in a 9x13-inch baking pan, but the texture will be different than baking in the 9x9-inch baking pan or 2-quart casserole dish.

The 9x13 casserole will be thin slices where the 2-quart casserole produces more of a corn pudding. Either way is delicious.

Hmmmmmm...I've never really been a big fan of corn but I do love me some cornbread and am pretty sure if this is a Paula Deen recipe, it's got to be amazing and worth trying. I'm thinking about adding some cheddar and diced up jalapeno peppers into the cornbread mixture before baking it for a kick, and then enjoying it with your favorite chili.

Almost...Paula Dean's recipe uses cheddar...That's the only difference.

This looks like a great dish. I can imagine it working well with a barbecue. I like corn, especially cream style corn. It's not a lot of effort to put together either so you can prepare it and leave it to cook whilst you get on with other things which is quite convenient.

We had ours as a side dish to the barbecue we hosted over the weekend and it was delish! We added a pinch of cayenne pepper and a crushed fresh garlic clove. The sour cream adds a really very pleasant flavor. I had to steal a forkful from one of the children to taste it because our guests finished off every last crumb. Lol!

I love this recipe. It is so easy to make, and is so versatile. I mostly serve it at Bar-B-Ques. It truly goes well with hamburgers, hot dogs, and bar-b-que chicken. Of course my family loves it anytime with fried chicken. Don't hesitate to make this recipe. It is quick and easy to prepare and a great addition to any meal.
