Today for dinner I’m gonna make something I’ve never made before and thats a Corn Casserole. I mistakenly opened a can of cream corn the other day so to use it I’m gonna make a casserole. The only thing is that I didn’t have any Jiffy Cornbread Mix nor did I want to use anything that had any artificial ingredients in it, so I remembered I had written down a Copy cat recipe. I don’t remember where I got it and I apologize to anyone if I’m using your recipe but here it is:
Copycat Jiffy Cornbread Mix-

Jiffy Corn Casserole

1 teaspoon vinegar
Beat together thoroughly and refrigerate.
***REVIEW OF ALL THREE RECIPES:
Wow, the Copycat Jiffy Mix came out excellent. I made the Sour Cream substitute and at first noticed how watery it was and after refrigerating it, it never thickened up. So I did it again using just a small amount of water, a few teaspoons and it turned into Sour Cream, so I used that to make the Corn Casserole. I have never been a fan of Cream Corn but I didn’t want to be wasteful and let me tell you, this recipe was VERY GOOD. I really enjoyed it. I got seconds of it. Its good as a side dish or as a main dish. The picture above is the casserole coming out of the oven. I will make and use all three recipes again!
