My favorite recipe from my gramma. She always called it a souffle but it is more of a corn pudding. My kids request this especially at Thansgiving and Christmas turkey dinners, and they like it with butter melted on the top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large dutch oven, melt butter over med high heat.
  2. Stir in flour, until mixed, it will look clumpy.
  3. Add milk and mix (you may have to break up the flour/butter clumps with a spoon on on the side of the pan) and bring to a boil.
  4. Mixture will be like a thick white sauce.
  5. Turn off heat and add corn, eggs and seasonings.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Pour into buttered 13x9 casserole.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour until center is set.

We love this recipe and have used it in various forms for years. I separate the eggs and whip the whites, which means you could probably get away with less flour. I like the addition of the green pepper. This an easy recipe, relatively forgiving and a general favorite with my teenage boys.

I enjoyed this a lot. People who enjoy custard-ish foods will like this, too. I used light cream instead of milk. I had a hard time believing the number of servings, but it is correct so plan accordingly!

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. I didn't want to make the 24 servings, so 1/3rd the recipe, except for the corn I used 2 cans of drained corn to have more corn then sauce. I didn't know how my picky family would like it, but there was no left overs.
