This makes a really nice side dish for Thanksgiving. I have also used it in place of corn bread with pulled pork or Tex-Mex foods. It really is quite versatile.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine corn, cheese, eggs, cream, sugar, baking powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  3. Process briefly until corn is just broken down.

This was soooo good. I'd never made anything like it before, and it turned out great. I made for the 2014 Culinary Quest, Tribute to the Onion Challenge. Yep, I did have wonderful raw Walla Walla onions with this, and a little sour cream. I will now always eat it with onion, cause it was fabulous!! Thanks for posting Jackie!

I made half a recipe and cooked the puddings in individual ramekins. If I were to make this again I would decrease the amount of sugar by half. Overall a delicious side for a real southern meal.

We do love our cornbreads & corn puddings around here, so this recipe was a wonderful fit on our table! I'm not usually that big on custardy dishes, but this one worked just fine & in less than 5 hours the 2 of us finished it off! Thanks for a great keeper!
