This Jiffy Cornbread Casserole is an easy side dish for your Thanksgiving or every day meals. I like to describe it as a gooey cheese cornbread. I think some might call it cornbread pudding. Whatever you call it, it is a perfect holiday side dish.
Jiffy Cornbread Casserole
The holidays are just around the corner. I have been excited to share some of my family holiday recipes with all of you here on my blog. Some of the dishes we make for Thanksgiving and Christmas stem from our childhood. Growing up, we always had Waldorf Salad and Sweet Potato Casserole along with Jiffy Cornbread Casserole.
Over the years, I modified our casserole by adding cheese. My kiddos love cheese and it actually makes this dish even better than the original. If you are a fan of cornbread and never made Jiffy Cornbread Casserole, you really need to give it a try.
Not a fan of cornbread? Neither am I. It’s ok but nothing to go crazy about. I usually do not go out of my way to eat it. But… I will go out of my way to eat Jiffy Cornbread Casserole. It makes for a perfect holiday dish. It’s one of those casseroles that I usually only make for the holidays. I still am not sure why. Maybe I need to make it more often.
Jiffy Cornbread Casserole is so easy to make. You can make it with or without the cheese. This recipe is great for feeding a medium sized crowd. If you have really big eaters, you may want to make a second casserole. It may disappear quite quickly because it is oh so good.
Cornbread is traditionally a southern food but this dish is so comforting. I live in the north and I LOVE it. My entire family loves it. I find it to be such a simple casserole that is always a hit.
Please note, I did only include 1 egg in my ingredient picture. I actually used 2 eggs. I have cheese in my casserole because it makes it extra good if you ask me. I shred my own cheese. If you use store bought pre-shredded, be prepared for your casserole to be greasy. Skip the bag stuff and shred fresh cheese. It makes most dishes that are cooked or baked so much better.
