Southern Corn Pudding Recipe

In this post I am sharing a classic favorite side dish of Southern Corn Pudding.

For many, corn pudding (or casserole) is a must have side dish for Thanksgiving. Of course this easy to prepare baked casserole is delicious for any meal.

The combination of sweet corn, corn muffin mix, cheese and savory ingredients make this old fashioned dish a favorite.

Who’s to blame them after all…I love anything with cheese! If you haven’t tried this comforting side dish then now is the time to add it to your menu plan for the holidays.

Where did corn casserole come from? It is considered to be a staple food, particularly in the Appalachian region of the South.

What is corn pudding made of? Recipes may vary but generally this recipe is a combination of whole corn, creamed corn, eggs, some type of dairy and thickeners…such as corn muffin mix or a flour mixture. Some folks top the dish with cheese while others prefer not to then it’s baked until set.

Can corn pudding be made in advance? Yes. You can prepare this casserole two days in advance and reheat.

Is crisp corn just whole kernel canned corn?? I'm a little confused.

Yes ma'am, sorry for the confusion. Depending on the brand the label may read "crisp". I hope that you enjoy the recipe and happy Thanksgiving.

I thought since my daughter does NOT like canned corn OR creamed style, i could have leftovers. I was wrong. Will be making this again.
