Best Corn Pudding Side Dish

Whether you call this Corn Pudding or Corn Souffle, it’s delicious either way. This easy corn pudding recipe has a creamy component but also the full corn kernels, which I really like. Sometimes the simple recipes are the best for the holidays. I have a tendency to try to dress up and change all the traditional recipes, but this one is great just how it is.

We thought about adding some bacon, and although that’d be delicious, I don’t think it really needs it. These flavors just go so well together on their own. They’re all you need for the perfect side dish!

It does take up to an hour to cook in the oven, but you don’t even need to think about it during that time. And prep is only 10 minutes, so you can get it cooking in no time.

  2. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, & melted butter
  3. Add sugar mixture to egg mixture as you whisk
  4. Stir in the corn (if you’re using bacon, add it in here)
  5. Pour the pudding into baking dish
  6. Cook the it for 45-60 minutes at 350°F

Easy prep and it comes out as a hot and delicious side dish ready to eat.

Can you reheat corn pudding?

If you have leftovers, keep them! Store it in the refrigerator (cover the baking dish with aluminum foil or plastic wrap). To reheat it, put it back in the oven at 300°F until it’s warm. I recommend covering the dish while it heats up to retain moisture.
