We did a test run to see if we would enjoy it and want to include it in our Thanksgiving meal this year.

Variations of this recipe
Make Jiffy Cornbread Casserole. Many people use Jiffy corn bread mix to make their cornbread casserole, if you want to use that then you can. Just omit the flour, baking powder, salt, and cornmeal and use half the box of jiffy mix instead and follow the rest of the recipe.
Make Cheesy Cornbread casserole. If you want to you can add 1/2 a cup to 1 cup of cheese in the corn casserole mix. If you are doing this I suggest adding cheddar cheese. Keep the rest of the recipe the same and just add the cheese.
