Recipe by KosherT
READY IN: 2hrs




  • Melt margarine in a saucepan over med heat. Add onions and cook until caramelized.
  • Add grated corn. It is best to use fresh corn but will also work with frozen.
  • Turn heat to low. Slowly add milk (or soymilk), stirring constantly. Continue to stir as corn cooks. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Whisk eggs, salt and pepper. Mix into the cooled corn mixture.
  • Pour mixture into greased ramekins or a shallow baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes (for ramekins), or 35-40 minutes (for baking dish), or until centre appears set.
  • Garnish: For sweet - sprinkle sugar on each; For savory - place one basil leaf in the centre of each ramekin.
  • Serve hot. Typically, sugar is set on the table for those that would like to add a little more to their pastelera as they eat through the sugar on top!
