Happy Monday everybody!
Hope you had an amazing weekend. I am all sorts of tired from holiday shopping, not to many weeks left to get it done, but someone needs to do it! Ok, so enough rambling from me.
Today I am sharing a recipe that I totally forgot about, it’s not my recipe but I have tweaked it a little to add some protein to it. But back to forgetting about this recipe, I don’t know how I did because it’s amazing and it’s kind of one of those recipes that can be used year round. It’s Jiffy’s Cornbread Casserole recipe. It’s so simple, and is always a hit every time I make it, there is NEVER any left.
What you’ll need:
- 1 box (8 oz) Jiffy Cornbread mix
- 1 – 15 oz can of corn drained
- 1 – 15 oz can of creamed corn
- ½ cup melted butter
- 1 cup of greek yogurt (original recipe calls for sour cream but the yogurt adds a ton of protein)
- Optional: add 2 eggs if you want more of a soft mushy bread consistency, where you can cut it into pieces (this is what I usually do, or if you prefer it to be very goey where you would serve with a spoon, omit the eggs.
Mix it all up and pour into a greased 9″x13″ casserole pan and cook at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Seriously guys, you are going to be addicted to this once you try it. So now I am going to tell you about the versatility of this casserole, it goes well with so many meals.
I love serving this at thanksgiving; it’s awesome for Christmas especially as an accompaniment to ham. Oh and one of my favorites is making this when I make chili, I just throw a piece of it in my chili instead of serving it over rice, and guys the combo of flavors will blow your mind.
And guess what it’s not just a fall/winter side, this casserole is awesome in the summer. It goes great with BBQ, especially paired with BBQ chicken. Sometimes I even jazz it up in the summer by throwing in a ¼ cup of chopped jalapenos. It is SO good, adds a little kick. You can also add some cheddar cheese to the mix, sprinkle about ½ cup on top before baking, you won’t be disappointed.
As you could see, I’m kind of in love with this casserole and I think you will be too. If you try it make sure you let us know what you think!
