scalloped corn recipe

Starting around the age of 5 my daughter took over making the scalloped corn for every holiday dinner. I think it was because she wanted to be sure that it didn’t get left off the menu. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

It’s a staple in our family…the sweet crunch of the corn paired with the soft cornbread goodness…it’s just a really special dish and we all love it! 

And, did I mention that it’s easy enough for a 5 year old to make? Sure…she needed help opening the cans and putting the dish in the oven, but really you just dump everything together and stir it up. It’s the perfect recipe for little helpers!

This dish is quick to put together and you can bake it up in your oven while you’re cooking the rest of your dinner.

  • Canned Corn
  • Cream Style Corn
  • Eggs
  • Sour Cream
  • Jiffy Mix
  • Butter
  • Seasonings

As you can see, this really is simple! 

I know that canned cream corn has a bad rap…I get it. But, in this dish it’s really perfect! Don’t skip this one!


Lately, I’ve been swapping out the salt + cayenne pepper for a teaspoon of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning. We put Tony’s on literally everything (it is the best!)) and it works perfect in this dish.
