Have you ever heard of Scalloped Corn Casserole? Well, me neither until I stumbled across it in an old cookbook the other day. Scalloped corn? Indeed, it is a thing and it’s a delicious one at that! If you love creamed corn then this side dish is going to be a new favorite!
If you are looking for a cornbread casserole, try my Jiffy cornbread casserole, it’s fantastic!
Creamy Scalloped Corn Casserole
Scalloped corn is basically canned creamed corn with some corn niblets added for texture (not all the time, however!) along with eggs, milk and usually crackers to slightly firm it up a bit. Make no mistake, the texture is still like creamed corn so if that texture doesn’t work for you then run away now. However if you love creamed corn then scalloped corn casserole is the recipe for you! This is not a casserole that holds its shape, even though it appears to in my photos. It’s basically creamed corn that’s firmed up a little bit and made creamier with the addition of milk and eggs.
On another note, how have I gone through 17 years of marriage without knowing that Mr Magpie likes creamed corn? I was going to make this and turned to him and said” I know you don’t like creamed corn, but I really want to try this recipe anyway tonight” and he gave me a puzzled look. It turns out that he loves creamed corn and I have been thinking that he hates it all of these years. That shows you how little I use canned cream corn in my kitchen!
Tips and Tricks for Scalloped Corn Casserole
- Do not expect a firm casserole. This is creamy and does not hold its shape.
- When using a smaller but taller casserole, you will have to cook it anywhere from 50-60 minutes to cook it properly. This casserole has eggs in it so remember that it has to reach at least 165 °F in the center to be safe to eat. When you use a 9×13 pan the casserole will cook quicker since it’s spread out more and thinner.
- I didn’t use the cracker topping as Mike always thinks that buttery cracker toppings make things to rich (insert eye roll here). It would be a delicious crunchy addition!

Hi Karlynn…..this recipe is fantastic! Also had to mention that finding out after many years that husband’s like/don’t like things HAS to be a guy thing. I always made a bag lunch for my husband to take to work. After about 10 years, he says…”if you put mustard on one more sandwich, I’m gonna puke!” Geez…lol!!
My mom made this as a side for Sunday dinner. I love it. Delish!
