    Default Baking 2 Casseroles at One Time?

    Hi all, I'm a newbie here and not much of a cook so I thought I'd toss out this question to those of you who actually know your way around a kitchen. A little background...

    I'll be baking a corn casserole for our Family Thanksgiving Gathering this year and since we have at least 18 confirmed and possibly 5 more I need to make at least two casseroles. The recipe is as follows:

    1 stick of melted butter
    1 can creamed corn
    1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
    1 box corn bread mix
    1 egg
    1 Tbs sugar
    8 oz. sour cream

    Mix all ingredients in a 13 x 9 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 mintues.

    The question is how much longer should I allow for baking two (2) casseroles at one time and should I increase the temperature as well?

    All input is appreciated! BTW, I posted this recipe and question in another thread but it didn't appear the thread was getting much attention. If you see it twice you can ignore one of the threads (or both).

    Regards,
    Cindy

    Wow, you are really having a house full of people. I would think if you use the same rack in the oven with a little space between them, it would be the same temp.& same time,would not increase the temp. Just maybe keep a check & see it may take a little more time but not much. Recipe sounds good. Or could you bake it & just reheat?

    Welcome to CK!

    Your recipe sounds really good!

    I think it might take 5 to 10 minutes longer at the same temp.

    Hi and welcome to CK! I would bake them both at the same time and watch to make sure they are cooked through. It might take a few more minutes, but keep the temp. the same. Also there is no "law" about your pan. I make this recipe in an oval dish, so don't sweat having idential sized pans.

    There is nothing in the recipe that cannot be eaten "raw" so I see no reason not to have them in at the same time. Don't increase the temperature but as already s***ested, check frequently towards the end. It shouldn't take too much longer to complete cooking.

    I would either do as roset said or I would double the recipe and use a 15in baking dish. and bake for 30 -35 mins. You really don't have anything to cook. The egg will set and hold it together and when the cornbread is golden it's done

    Default Thanks for the replies

    Thanks for all the replies and the welcome. Actually, The Gathering will be taking place at my MIL's house so I don't have to do all that work. My MIL's house is larger and 6 out-of-town family members will be staying with her all week. Between she and her husband they have 6 children, all either married or in a relationship and some with children so it's a large family. She would have everyone stay at her house if we would all do it. She loves having her family close. Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter are all big get togethers at her house with as many family members and friends as she can get. It's never boring!!

    Anyway, I'll be taking 2 dishes because my MIL specifically requested 2 dishes. She rarely makes requests like that so I try to fulfill them when she makes them. We will be doing the meal "buffet" style.

    I'll also be making a big ole pot of soup to help feed the out-of-towners. That will be easy. It will just take time to "brew." I love soup when the weather starts getting cooler. It will probably be hot again by Thanksgiving but hopefully it will be cool for a few days. Hubby and I will have soup and I'll get my neice to make Olive Garden Zuppa soup. We'll have a Soup Trade. Soup, yumm. I'm getting hungry thinking about soup.

    Thank you again. Enjoy your Thanksgiving (if you celebrate) and stay safe.

    Regards,
    Cindy
