What is the difference between corn pie, corn casserole, and corn pudding?
All of these corn-based recipes seem the same, right? Well, although all of these delicious recipes contain some of the same key ingredients such as butter, honey, corn, and cornmeal: there are actually some differences! Typically made into a pie form with a top crust and sometimes paired with potatoes, corn pie can be a little different. Corn casserole is a mixture of Jiffy corn muffin mix, corn, honey, sour cream, and butter that is dumped into a baking dish and baked to perfection– the texture is soft and tender. Corn pudding is typically made with sugar and is a little more tender than corn casserole. All of these recipes are very similar with slight differences, but some people all call them the same names.

Are you like me? Do you find yourself scurrying around at the last minute trying to come up with something for dinner that your family won’t raise their nose up at, or better yet, an actual meal that is full of comfort foods, prepared in your very own kitchen and not out of a paper bag at the drive-thru?
Well, I have a new secret to share with you that will help you prepare this whole meal you see above, in less than one hour. I know, you are doubting me, right? But stick with me here a minute and let me share how you can be settling down to this meal tonight, and it is as easy as reaching into your freezer and your pantry.
Country Fried Steak & Gravy FROM GREAT AMERICAN COMFORT CLASSICS
Recently, I was asked to try some new convenience items at my local HyVee supermarket. Comfort Classics, under the Great American brand, is a new line of fully cooked protein comfort food classics. The collection has Southern Style Chicken Breast Fillets, Meatloaf Slices, Crispy Steak Strips, Chicken & Waffle Style Bites, and Country Fried Steaks.
All of the Comfort Classics items were made with savvy parent consumers in mind, addressing the need for high quality, good tasting, convenient ways to prepare meals for their families. It’s perfect for when moms and dads are busy with work, kids, life in general and they don’t always have the time to cook, but are trying to stay out of the drive-thru, and just want to gather their family around the dinner table at the end of the day.
Comfort Classics has a nice variety of proteins to choose from that can be prepared in the oven, microwave, or air fryer, for a meal that is ready in minutes!
You may remember the meal I made with their Southern Fried Chicken Fillets a couple of weeks ago? I showed you how this beautiful comforting meal of breaded chicken fillets, a green veggie, and my Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes and Comfort Classics gravy was on the table in about 45 minutes!
Yep. You heard me correctly. Only forty-five minutes for this meal that looks like a Sunday supper that took all day long.
Country Fried Steaks & Gravy
Today’s meal features the Great American Comfort Classics Country Fried Steak and uses the gravy mix that comes with it.
The package of country-fried steaks came with 5 pieces and a packet of peppered gravy mix. I have to tell you, I was a bit leery when I thought about making gravy from a packet. Gravy is from scratch here in my house, and I am known to make a mean batch of gravy. But I will admit, the gravy that comes with the Comfort Classics meals is really good.

To make this meal, bring a pot of water to boil and salt it. Drop some red potatoes into the water, skins on, and cover with a lid. Next, you will want to prepare the corn pie. While it’s in the oven the rest comes together quickly.
- Corn Muffin Mix- The Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix is my top choice, but you can use any cornbread mix. The muffin mix really makes this recipe!
- Butter- Make sure the butter is melted! You can use either unsalted or salted butter in this corn pie casserole.
- Corn- You will need both creamed and whole kernel corn for this recipe. I like to use canned corn because it’s easy and quick, but you can use frozen corn, too.
- Eggs- Slightly beaten for additional moisture.
- Honey- The star of this recipe: Corn and butter sweetened with honey is just perfection! If you don’t have honey, then you can use any other type of sweetener.
- Sour Cream- Feel free to use reduced-fat or regular sour cream.
- Cheese- Medium shredded cheddar cheese. You can purchase the shredded kind in the bag, or grate your own cheese. I prefer to grate my own.

Next up: My Grandma’s Pork and Beans! You can approach this recipe in a couple of different ways. You can have them in the slow cooker ready to go, or you can make them right on the stovetop, which is what I did this particular evening. You just mix everything together and let it cook on medium-low until you’re ready to eat.
Bake the Country Fried Steak in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 25 minutes. Stir the gravy together on the stovetop, and keep warm until ready to serve.
When your potatoes are the desired tenderness, drain the water from them, add in a little milk, butter and salt & pepper. Give them a quick mash.
Plate everything, top with hot gravy, and serve. Watch your family gobble it up and rub their tummies with a satisfied smile on their faces.
