Easy Crock Pot Corn Casserole Recipe
This easy corn casserole is truly comfort food personified. The oven version has been a standard at potlucks in the South for eons. It’s such a simple dish to assemble, and the ingredients are readily available in any grocery store. I really love making it in my slow cooker on busy oven days when I’m entertaining or at the holidays when there are so many other dishes that need oven time. It maintains it’s moisture while slow cooking and the texture is soft and fluffy. I also have another recipe similar to this one that utilizes broccoli. Checkout my broccoli cheese cornbread recipe, too. Ingredients you’ll need to make this Easy Crock Pot Corn Casserole:

How to Make the BEST Crock Pot Corn Casserole Recipe
- Kitchen tools you’ll need: A 6 quart or similar crockpot, medium bowl, measuring cups and spoons, small bowl for melting the butter and cheese grater.
- You can use any brand of cornbread muffin mix you like. Jiffy is a bit sweeter than other brands like Martha White so, adjust the amount of sugar accordingly. If you use the sweeter of the two, the batter may be sweet enough without adding any additional sugar.
- The frozen corn needs to b e thawed prior to adding it to the other ingredients. There’s no need to cook it, just thawing is sufficient.
- Why use paper towels? While cooking, this corn casserole will produce condensation on the lid. The paper towels will prevent it from dropping down onto the dish while it’s cooking.
- After the corn casserole has finished cooking you can hold it on the warm setting, if needed. Keep the paper towels and the lid on top to prevent condensation from dripping back into the finished casserole.
- You could use another kind or flavor of shredded cheese for this recipe. Be it sharp cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese for a little kick or colby jack cheese.
- If you opt to use the oven method, there’s no need to cover it while baking. Add the cheese during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
- Store Crockpot Corn Casserole chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in single servings in the microwave.
