Cooking Tips

  • You can also make this casserole in the air fryer: cook at 390 degrees for 8 minutes
  • Brush a little bit of the melted butter onto the casserole dish so the food doesn’t stick to it while baking
  • To tell if casserole is done, stick a toothpick into the center of the dish. It should come out clean; if not, cook for another 5 minutes or so
  • Cornbread casserole solidifies as it cools, so be sure to let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing

Why Is My Corn Casserole Dry?

There could be a couple of reasons for this. It’s possible that the casserole needs more moisture to balance out the dry ingredients. Try adding more butter or sour cream. Or the reason could be cold eggs, which can lead to over-mixing the batter. To avoid this, leave the eggs out on the counter until they reach room temperature. Then use them in the recipe and be careful not to over stir the mixture.
