While choosing recipes for this event I searched the Taste of Home site for the vegetables my guys will eat and one of them is corn. Up popped Melinda M's Cape Cod Corn Pudding. I'm from New England but have never heard of corn pudding but thought I'd give it a try.
I did make a few changes. Both of my guys are picky about onion so instead of fresh I used minced dried. It reconstituted nicely in the melting butter but was still in fairly small pieces.
The recipe also calls for less cheese. I bought a 2 cup package of Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar, used 3/4 of the bag in the pudding itself and then topped it with the remaining 1/4 packages. I do not have an 11x7, so I baked mine in a 13x9.
Thanks so much to Heather from Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks for hosting #HolidaySideDishes Week and to all of the other bloggers for sharing their awesome recipes! Check them out using the links down below!
Cape Cod Corn Pudding
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 5 cups frozen corn (about 24 ounces)
- 2 tablespoons minced dried onion
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups shredded cheddar (I used Cabot Vermont Sharp), divided
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, optional, I used purple basil as garnish.
- Preheat oven to 375°. In a 6-qt. stockpot, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add corn and onion; cook and stir about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, ricotta cheese, cornmeal, sugar, salt and pepper. Stir in 2/3 of the bag of cheddar cheese, corn mixture and, if desired, basil.
- Transfer to a greased 13x9 baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake, uncovered, until set, 35-40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
