Baked Corn (Carole)

I haven't posted a recipe for quite awhile, and with the 4th of July right around the corner I thought this might be a good one to pass on.  The end result looks a lot like corn bread, but let me assure you, it is so much better than that!  For a vegetarian (or someone just looking to have a hearty dish without meat) it is an absolute winner as a main dish.  I often use it as a really tasty side-dish with ribs or ham.  It would make a great dish to take to a picnic with fire-works -- travels well and is a real crowd pleaser.  Guaranteed you'll come home with an empty dish!  I got this recipe from my friend Traci about 10 years ago and she told me, "This will instantly become your husband's favorite dish!"  And she was absolutely right, there are always shouts of joy when I bring this to the table!  (No kidding).  So, here it is:

Baked Corn

1 can whole kernel corn (.73)
1 can creamed corn (.73)
1 cup sour cream (.50)
1 box Jiffy Corn Mix (.44)
1 egg beaten (.10)
1 stick butter or  margarine melted (.69)

Mix them all together and pour into a 9x9 buttered dish.  Bake at 350 for 45 - 50 minutes until the top if lightly browned.  SO Yummy!

Total cost:  $3.19

Can you tell me what the box of Jiffy Corn mix is? I'm in Europe where they don't sell that (I don't think) but if I know what it is I might be able to find a replacement..

If you need to substitute for a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix, I've done it before and had it work fine:

2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp vegetable oil

Thanks for asking for clarification, Saskia, on Jiffy Mix. I sometimes forget how MANY foreign readers we have! Just today we've had readers in Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Germany, India and the U.K.

So exciting for us State Side folks! Thanks for reading our blog! We love you!

If I could give out an award for "Sweet and salty satisfaction in a dish", I'd give it to this recipe.

Do you drain the can of whole kernel corn? Or do you pour the whole can in, juice and all?

I usually drain the corn. But it works either way. Thanks for asking!

I have made a version of this by Paula Dean, and it of course includes cheese melted all over the top---that makes it richer--but it's awesome either way! :)

I'm sorry for the repeat comments! The word verification thing kept poppoing up as "failed." OOPS!
