Ghost's Kitchen: Cornbread Casserole

What's cooking today?
Cornbread Casserole

Hello everyone and welcome to another segment of...

Have you ever been invited to a function or a party where the host tells you that they have the main dishes covered but they just want you to bring a side dish?  That used to annoy me partially because I would sit there and think "well... crap!  Most everything I know how to cook is a main dish or the side items are cooked with the main dish."  You don't want to be extremely lame and bring something that you just need to open the can and warm up, or something you just pick up from the store and open.  At the same time...what else is there for side items?  Sure there are some really elaborate side dishes that can be made but who has time for that?  Ultimately you just bring a pot of baked beans or offer to make a dessert instead and hope for the best.

Well now you don't have to do that.  Today's dish is a simple side dish that goes great for small outings and can easily be doubled for larger events.  It's something that shows you cared enough to actually cook a side dish but it's also extremely easy to make.  I'd like to thank my sister-in-law, Rachel, for giving my wife this recipe that I can share with you all!

Gather Your Ingredients
  • 1 can whole kernel corn
  • 1 can cream styled corn
  • 1 stick butter
  • 8 oz container of sour cream
  • 1 box Jiffy corn bread mix
  • 8x8 glass dish
  • Spoon
1. Preheat oven to 350°F

2. Place butter in dish and place in oven

3. Remove from oven as soon as the butter is melted fully

4. Pour both cans of corn and sour cream into dish

5. Mix thoroughly

6. Add Jiffy Corn Bread Mix to the dish

7. Mix till uniform texture
Don't get lazy on this one.  Mix this stuff together vigorously.  When you think it's mixed enough, mix it for another minute because the more thoroughly mixed this is, the better end product you will get.

8. Bake for 45 minutes.

9. Cut the casserole into slices and serve.

TIP: If you are having a large party and need far more of this simply double all of the ingredients, use a 9X13 pan, and bake for an hour and 15 minutes. 

This is insanely simple.  It's one of those things that can be done without really thinking about it but will be impressive to bring simply because it's not just something lame picked up at the store.  It tastes great and goes with just about anything.  One word of warning though.  This may not be the case with you but personally I wouldn't fix this dish too often.  It's not that the dish is bad it's just one of those things that... when you eat it too often you get sick to death of eating the blasted thing.  Due to it's easy and inexpensive nature you may be tempted to make this a lot as I did, but resist the urge and it will remain a favorite,

This is Ghost fading into the darkness.
