What You Need To Make This Corn Casserole Recipe?
Melted Butter: In every bite melted butter not only brings the ingredients together but also imparts an indulgent flavor to the dish transforming simple corn into a truly decadent treat.
Cream Style Corn: This is where the magic happens! Cream-style corn adds a velvety texture, along, with a sweetness that takes the casserole from ordinary to extraordinary. It’s the ingredient that makes each spoonful irresistibly creamy.
Whole Kernel Corn: These golden gems steal the spotlight. They bring a burst of texture and an explosion of corn flavor creating a beautiful contrast with the creamy elements.
Sour Cream: Imagine cream as that breeze on a warm day. It introduces a twist perfectly balancing out the sweetness of the corn with its tartness while keeping the casserole incredibly moist.
Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix: The touch in our casserole! This mix holds the key, to achieving that crust with just a hint of crispiness. It adds a touch of sweetness and an amazing texture to elevate not only the layer but also complement the creamy center in every bite.
Steps To Make Corn Casserole:
Step 1: To get started preheat your oven to 350°.
Step 2: Next, you’ll want to melt the butter in a safe dish, for use, in the microwave. Heating it for 15 to 30 seconds should be sufficient.
Step 3: In a bowl combine the whole-kernel corn, cream-style corn, sour cream, and the melted butter. Make sure everything is well mixed.
Step 4: Add the corn muffin mix to the bowl. Stir until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Step 5: Take an 8×8 or 9×9 square baking dish. Grease it before pouring in the corn mixture. Place it on the rack of your oven. Let it bake for approximately 40 to 45 minutes until you notice a lovely golden brown crust forming.
Step 6: As it bakes an enticing aroma will fill your kitchen. Enjoy!
To add a burst of flavor and a delightful change, in texture consider sprinkling some cheese on top of the casserole prior to baking. A combination of cheddar and creamy Monterey Jack cheese works well. The sharpness of the cheddar beautifully complements the sweetness of the corn while the Monterey Jack melts into a deliciously gooey layer. This not only enhances the taste but also gives the casserole an enticing golden brown crust that is hard to resist. Simply bake until the cheese is bubbly and turns a color for a delightful twist, on this timeless dish.
