It’s week 3 of our Thanksgiving recipe “tour.”  So far, we’ve made Pumpkin Lasagna and Simple Garlic & Butter Green Beans. (See the bottom of this post for links to those recipes.) Today, I will be sharing a recipe for Triple Corn Spoon Bread.

I think I came upon this recipe many, many years ago in an issue of Southern Living magazine. It’s another really simple recipe- just dump everything in a big bowl, stir, and bake! I think the holidays should be delicious but also not too stressful, especially if you are playing hostess with the mostest for the gathering. I entertain and host large family gatherings quite a lot, and I’m always looking for recipes that aren’t too difficult, don’t make a mess of my entire kitchen, but are still delicious. This one fits the bill! Don’t save it just for Thanksgiving, though- this is so simple you can make it just about any time (it does need to bake for an hour- so maybe not a weeknight dish if you are on a tight schedule.) It makes the house smell wonderful while it’s baking.

It’s called Triple Corn because there is creamed corn, a can of regular whole kernel corn, and corn muffin mix in it. It’s kind of a cross between corn muffins and hush puppies and a fluffy moist casserole. You could also add some shredded cheese and a small can of diced chilies for a Southwestern dish. And if there are any leftovers (there won’t be… but if there were…) it is divine served warm for breakfast the next day with a spoonful of jam on top.


Triple Corn Spoon Bread

  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sour cream (regular, light, or fat free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1- 15 oz can whole kernel corn, undrained
  • 1- 14 3/4 oz can creamed corn
  • 1- 8 1/2 oz box corn muffin mix


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray (I prefer a casserole dish that is low and flat, to maximize the surface area for the nice toasty crust on top.)

In a large bowl, stir together butter, sour cream and egg. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Pour into casserole dish and bake about 1 hour until center is set and edges are lightly brown.

Makes about 8 servings.


(See- I told you it was easy!!!)
