I’m always on the lookout for a kitchen “multi-tasker” – one item with LOTS of uses! A box of corn muffin mix is one of the most versatile items in your kitchen. It’s also really cheap – I was able to find a pack of six boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix for just $3.19! Today I’m sharing four recipes that are easy, cheap and so tasty.

Bright Ideas

  • Where I live, Cornbread Casserole is known as spoon bread. The best part about that recipe is that the add ins are endless. Shredded chicken, green chilis, leftover diced ham. This is usually a dish I make when I’m cleaning out my fridge. I like to make mine in my crockpot.

  • These recipes look so tasty and, once again, Amazon to the rescue! Corn muffin mix is not something we see in the U.K. much, if at all, but I can buy between two and twelve boxes on Amazon, and at pretty good prices too! Although there is someone selling 5 x 7 oz boxes for £10.50 which is $12.12! Some people really do try it on! I’m noticing that comments are open on some quie old postings, it’s wonderful to be able to comment, thank you

  • I add some Jiffy corn muffin mix to my chili as it cooks! It add that corn/mesa flavor that is a MUST in chili and also lends a hint of sweetness that balances out the strong savory flavors of a robust chili!

  • Thanks for sharing! To save even more money, you can make your own Jiffy Mix. I just buy the ingredients in bulk from Costco, shake them together in a container, and I have Jiffy Mix for the year. :)

  • I made the Cheesy Cornbread and it turned out very, very moist, almost like a corn pudding. Maybe it could be named Cornbread Casserole. I might try it again using two boxes of the Jiffy Cornbread mix, it may be more cornbread-like. It did taste REALLY good! I added some pieces of green pepper that I froze from my garden last year.

  • I make a copycat Marie Callender’s cornbread using 1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix and add 1 cup of yellow cake mix. I follow the directions on the Jiffy cornbread mix box. This makes a delicious cornbread almost exactly like Marie Callender’s. I wait until the yellow cake mixes go on sale at a local big-box store for $0.88 a box. This is a delicious and much less expensive alternative to the Marie Callender’s cornbread mix found in the bakery aisle in a box.

  • If you would like a recipe for Broccoli Cheese Cornbread, get back with me and I’ll be glad to give it to you. It is made with Jiffy Mix

  • Love these 4 ideas…I also use the Jiffy Cornbread mix for baking my fish fillets. catfish especially, Use mayonnaise to coat the outside of the fillet/ then dust the outside of the fillet in the cornbread mix, ( Usually make it as mess-free as possible by putting the baking mix in a plastic bag and shake) (the mayonnaise adds the oil needed) For my husband and I the box will be enough coating for two batches

  • Another thing that you can add to your Cheesey cornbread is to brown and drain some ground beef or turkey to even sausage. It is really good. If you wa t it spicy, add in some chopped jalapeños. This is good cold, too, but best warmed.

  • Another favorite is sweet corn cake, great with Mexican dinners!! Box of mix, one egg, half a cup of sugar and a can of creamed corn. Bake for 30 minutes at 350….a family favorite in our house!!

    • I have made this before. It’s 1/2 cup butter. You can reduce it if you want. It’s a very forgiving recipe. I have made it with 1/4 of butter and another time with 1/4 cup of coconut oil instead of butter which gave it great flavor. Add in jalapeños for a kick sometime! I have also made it without the cheese and it’s still delish! Thanks for the great recipes Jillee!
