If you found my recipe because you want a corn casserole with whole-kernel corn, then you are in the right place. If you found my recipe because you like corn casserole with creamed corn but you don't have any creamed corn, you're ok too. Just take half of your whole-kernel corn and a splash of heavy cream. Use a blender or food processor to lightly puree it, still leaving some small pieces of corn. Mix this "creamed corn" with the whole kernel corn and finish the recipe as written.
If you have a box of Jiffy corn muffin mix, aka Jiffy Cornbread Mix by some, on hand, you can use it as a delightful alternative to the flour, corn flour, baking soda, and salt in this corn casserole recipe making it a Jiffy corn casserole recipe. It adds a little bit of extra flavor to the dish. This casserole can be a great accompaniment to other classic holiday dishes like green bean casserole, my favorite Thanksgiving side dish of all time!
