Cheesy Corn Spoon Bread

I made barbecue chicken today and thought this would be the perfect accompaniment.  Plus, I have an overabundance of cream corn to use up because my husband accidentally bought a case of it thinking it was regular corn, and he doesn’t like it by itself.  I found this recipe on Kittencal’s Kitchen.  She makes some pretty great stuff, so I go to her website often for recipes.  This spoon bread was really good.  The recipe originally included jalapeno.  I left it out as my hubby doesn’t like anything hot, but I’m sure it would be great with it.

Cheesy Corn Spoon Bread (Adapted from Kittencal’s Kitchen)


  • 1/3 c butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 c sour cream (one 16-ounce container)

  • 1 (8-1/2 ounce) package corn bread/muffin mix
  • 1/2 t seasoned salt
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 c shredded cheddar cheese


1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease a 3-quart casserole dish.

2.  In a small skillet heat butter over medium-high heat.  Add in onion; saute until softened (about 3-4 minutes).  Add in garlic and saute for 2 minutes; set aside.

3.  In a bowl beat eggs for about 2 minutes.  Mix in sour cream, corn kernels and cream-style corn until blended.  Using a wooden spoon stir/mix in the corn bread/muffin mix and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Fold in onion/garlic mixture and 2 cups cheddar cheese.  Season with fresh ground black pepper (use as much black pepper as you like).  Transfer to casserole dish.

4.  Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Immediate sprinkle 1 cup cheddar cheese on top and allow to melt.
