Easy Corn Pudding Recipe

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!

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.

There is a *See note after the fresh corn kernels ingredient but I don't find the note. Did I over look it or is not included? Love your recipes!!

    I can't find the the note either. I hope I can use frozen corn.
