My mother, Deb, started a handwritten recipe book with all of us kids' faves and holiday traditions about a year before she passed in 2001. These recipes have become a way for us to still have Mom at our holiday meals for 14 years now. I've never shared until now any of her specialties. However, I find as each year passes, and as her grandchildren get older and begin to learn to cook, that time is so precious, as my mom passed in less than 5 minutes UNEXPECTEDLY and very young. I post these to keep her memory alive and to honor a great Mom and a wonderful cook.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We absolutely loved everything about this corn casserole. It's very simple and has basic ingredients. Where this gets a little crazy, is it's cooked in a cast iron skillet like you would cornbread. When the slightly sweet casserole is done, it's inverted onto a platter showcasing the beautiful buttery crust that forms while cooking in the skillet. The crust is similar to cornbread crust, but inside the texture is like a fluffy bread pudding.

How To Make deb's easy corn casserole

Test Kitchen Tips
The key to turning out the casserole is to have a well-oiled skillet.
  • Preheating an oiled skillet.
    Preheat a well-oiled cast iron skillet in an oven set to 375°. I put my skillet in when I turn on my oven, when the oven is preheated, the skillet is ready.
  • Melted butter, egg, sour cream, and Jiffy corn mix combined in a bowl.
    In a large mixing bowl, mix together melted butter, egg, sour cream, and Jiffy corn mix. I do this by hand, not with a mixer.
  • Mixing in whole kernel corn and creamed corn.
    Add drained whole kernel corn and can of creamed corn.
  • Mixture poured into hot skillet.
    Pour mixture into hot skillet and bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until medium-dark golden brown on top & a bit crunchy around edges.
  • Easy Corn Casserole cooling in the skillet.
    Cool 5-10 minutes.
  • Easy Corn Casserole turned onto a serving platter.
    Turn quickly to your choice of serving platter.

    This recipe doubles very well if you have a large enough cast iron skillet. The well seasoned cast iron skillet is the trick in this recipe.
