Can I admit something?? I’ve never had corn pudding. I KNOW. Can you believe that?! I didn’t know what I was missing. Something about the words corn and pudding that just don’t go together in my mind. Regardless of that, this classic recipe is a must make for the holidays. It pairs beautifully with Turkey and Stuffing at Thanksgiving and Ham and all the fixins at Christmas. Its a simple and delicious recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser on any holiday table. Its comforting, EASY, pretty, and so delicious! Classic Corn Pudding for the WIN!
Whether you call this Corn Pudding or Corn Souffle, it’s delicious either way. It’s got 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 recipes of old, 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 needs it. These flavors just go so well together on their own, they’re all you need for the perfect side dish.
Make your Mama proud with this Classic Corn Pudding. You can’t go wrong. It compliments so many flavors and is just right for any holiday spread.
