Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a golden-brown corn casserole on your table? While some may refer to it as corn pudding or escalloped corn, in my family, it’s known as corn soufflé. It’s the perfect marriage of flavors and textures that will leave everyone craving for more.

This delightful side dish has a special place in our family gatherings, thanks to my middle daughter. At the tender age of 13, she made a courageous decision to cut out meat from her diet completely. From that moment on, corn soufflé became her go-to dish, and it has remained so to this day.


What exactly is corn soufflé? While there are many variations of this recipe, the one I’m sharing with you today is a true gem. It’s a combination of simple ingredients that blend together harmoniously to create a symphony of flavors. I suspect it originated from Jiffy corn muffin mix, but don’t worry if you don’t have it on hand. You can use any other brand that suits your taste.

Recipe Notes and Tips

To elevate your corn soufflé game, here are some essential tips:

  • If you don’t have Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix, don’t worry! Feel free to use any other brand of your choice, but make sure to adjust the quantity accordingly.
  • When it comes to casserole dishes, I highly recommend using a 2-quart size with higher sides. The shape and size of the dish will affect the cooking time, so keep an eye on it after 45 minutes. It should be firm to the touch and nicely set, not too jiggly.
  • Leftovers are just as delicious as the freshly baked soufflé. To reheat, simply cover the dish lightly with a damp paper towel and microwave on high until hot.

And there you have it! This corn soufflé is probably the easiest side dish you’ll ever make for Thanksgiving or any special family gathering. Even my three daughters have mastered this recipe and make it on their own. It’s become a cherished tradition for us, and I hope it becomes one for you too.
