Cornbread casserole

Cornbread casserole is a great as a holiday side. I also love to make it to accompany soups, stews and chili during the cold weather season. There’s always a good reason to make it!

This recipe is a part of a holiday recipe roundup collaboration hosted by me, Natasha of @asiliglamcooks. For this week we are focusing on casserole meals.

Hey everyone! It’s Jessica Lawson here, the home cook and creator behind the blog, bigdeliciouslife.com. I’ve got one of my favorite casserole recipes for you here, my cornbread casserole. This is a simple recipe that’s often made with a box of jiffy mix and a can of creamed corn. I tweak it a bit using from scratch ingredients and a touch of honey to recreate that slightly creamy, cake-like texture that we all love in this dish.

This recipe can be made in an 8×8 baking dish or I often like to portion it out in individual ramekins for a fun presentation. I love to just dig in with a spoon. 

Cornbread casserole is easily customizable and you can experiment with all different variations. Add some diced jalapenos and cheddar. Add parmesan cheese. You can even play with the seasonings and make it Mexican style or add different fresh herbs. Have fun with it and make it your own!
