SCALLOPED CORN is a family favorite that we serve up at every holiday dinner. It’s kid-friendly and one of the easiest dishes to make…just toss everything in a bowl, stir, and bake!

Super Easy Scalloped Corn Recipe! | Buns In My Oven (1)

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. 😉

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!

“This is one of our favorite side dishes!
To tell ya the truth, I’d be totally happy if it was the main dish!” – Dana

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.

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!

Helpful Tip!

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.

    WOW-this is a keeper! Not one to leave reviews but this recipe was exactly what I was looking for. Side dish for a bar b q dinner. Fresh corn was in season so I used four good size ears in place of canned but everything else the same. It was flavorful, moist and not too sweet. Having not done it before I added some crushed ritz cracker for a little crunch but it’s not necessary. Thanks for posting this recipe!


    • Karly says

      Sounds delicious with fresh corn and Ritz! Thanks for sharing!


    • Karen says

      Just to be clear, kept the cream corn and sprinkled the Ritz just on the top. Yum!


  2. Jennie says

    3 cans of corn sounds like a lot. I was thinking about adding two boxes of corn muffin mix. Adding spam to it. Any suggestions.


    • Karly says

      If you double the corn muffin mix, you’ll want to double the other ingredients as well.


  3. Eyda F Arguelles says

    I make this several times a year without the cayenne…..this year I added 4 oz of room-temperature cream cheese and it took it to another level!!!!!


    • Karly says

      Sounds amazing!


  4. Sue says

    Scalloped corn uses saltines. Your recipe is corn souffle aka corn casserole. They are totally different dishes.


    • Sherry Sullivan says

      That’s the way I’ve always made it with crackers. Could you send me your recipe cause I can’t find mine and I need to make it for tomorrow night please.


  5. Carla says

    It is not scalloped corn if you use Jiffy cornbread mix! That is a corn cassarole!

    I’ve been making this for years only I call it corn casserole. It is so very good. Sometime I switch out the can corn with Mexican corn and I top the casserole with cheddar cheese.


    • Karly says

      Sounds delicious with the Mexican corn!


  7. Sara says

    Hi Karly,

    This scalloped corn looks delicious. I agree with you, corn is so good, I could eat it for dessert. I’m actually taking a little breather from recipe testing a corn dessert! *soon to make an appearance on my blog*

    Hope to see you over there again soon


  8. Jackie says

    Ok, so I LOVE this recipe, it’s like corn-crack, but I’ve made it a couple times now, and it always seems to take a lot longer than it should. Like, two or three hours more. Any ideas why I can’t get this to cook in 45-50 minutes? I’m making this for Easter, and I’d really like it to be ready with the rest of dinner!


  9. Durelda H. duRemus says

    LOVE this recipe! LOVED it!!! But what is a dell pepper? Also, sweetie, ya needta git ya need to ponder a bit on “your” and “you’re” . . . ya gettim confused ya got my head a-spinnin’ . . .


  10. cheryl says

  11. Kelly says

    This looks wonderful. I’m going to try this out before Christmas to possibly make for Christmas dinner. I make a version with Saltines like someone else posted.


  12. Sarah E. says

    If you like corn, you ought to try this dip. It’s great!

    Corn Dip
    2 cans mexicorn/fiesta corn (drain)
    1 cup real mayo
    1 cup sour cream
    2 oz diced pimentos (drain)
    2 Tbls diced jalapenos
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    16 oz mexican cheese (divided, 12 oz and 4 oz)
    Mix all ingredients together.
    Bake in a casserole dish topped with the 4 oz of cheese at 350 for 20 minutes.


  13. Nicole Lenz says

    I made this last year with the saltines and it came out a little soupy…looking forward to making it this way for Thanksgiving! Thanks for posting it. You have a great site!
