In our family, we’re always looking for a new way to serve those old traditional favorites. One family favorite dish is scalloped corn, or corn pudding, depending on who is hosting dinner that year. One way to bring a new experience to this classic dish is by using fresh corn and making it almost like a souffle.
Traditionally, corn pudding is kind of heavy and dense. This version is lighter and fluffier, but still rich and satisfying. It’s sure to be loved by everyone. You might even want to make a double batch, as people will definitely be asking for seconds, and it re-heats fabulously. This is fantastic when served with Green Beans Almondine.
