  • 1 15.25 ounce can whole kernel corn, drained 432g
  • 1 15 ounce can cream-style corn 420g
  • 8 oz sour cream 230g
  • 8.5 oz dry corn muffin mix 240g
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 jalapeños de-seeded and finely diced add more if you love spice!
  • 3/4 cup butter melted, 170g
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 3/4 oz parmesan grated, 52.5g



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch casserole dish.
  • Beat two eggs in a bowl. Drain a 15oz can or whole kernel corn.  Deseed and finely dice 2-4 jalapeños depending on how much spice you'd like.
  • Combine kernel corn, cream style corn, sour cream, melted butter, beaten eggs, corn muffin mix, jalapeños, and parmesan in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer to baking dish and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 80 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.



  • You can mix this batter up a few hours ahead of time and pop into the oven when space frees up if it's a busy holiday bake day.
  • This recipe begs to be modified, it's about foolproof so add in diced ham, spicier chilis, or more cheese if desired!
  • Hate doing dishes? You can mix the whole thing in a baking dish. Just make sure to use a spatula to scrape the bottom down and ensure there aren't any unmixed pockets hanging around.
