Corn Pudding

IMG_1324A couple cans of corn and some kitchen staples are all that are needed to make this easy corn pudding side dish. We love this with our turkey dinner at Thanksgiving, or with a weeknight meal any time the menu needs a little rounding out. It’s so popular that I made it several times over the last couple months, and there was never anything left to photograph and post! Finally snagged a picture of a bowl, so here it is. I got this gluten-free recipe from a Better Home & Gardens magazine in an article titled “To Grandmother’s House We Go,” with other holiday favorites, before “gluten-free” was a concern. We first tried it some time in the 90’s, and it’s been a guest at our dinner table more often than my goofy Uncle Norman ever since. The only trick is to make sure it’s fully cooked before serving. It’s set when it doesn’t jiggle in the middle when jostled in the oven. I mean the corn pudding, not you. I’m not commenting on whether your middle jiggles when jostled or not.

Serves 8-10

1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14.75 ounce) can cream-style corn
1 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
¼ cup butter, melted
¼ teaspoon course ground black pepper
½ cup cornmeal

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl, combine corn, creamed corn, milk, eggs, butter, and pepper. Add corn meal and stir until moistened. Pour mixture into a 2-quart casserole or 9″x13″ baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes, or until lightly browned and set in the center. Serve.
