- Heavy Cream – a dash of this could make it creamier but be cautious of too much liquid changing the texture/cooktime.

Tips and Expert FAQ’s
If you don’t have corn muffin mix, you can follow this cornbread substitute!
If your corn casserole is runny, it could be because of the extra moisture that was in your corn kernels. If you want to try baking it longer to see if it thickens, make sure to cover the baking dish with aluminum foil, not to burn the top.
This recipe is a little on the sweeter side, than the savory side. However if you want it extra sweet, you can add in about a teaspoon of white granulated sugar when mixing together the corn, butter and sour cream.
