Recipe: Southern Corn Pudding

This recipe for Southern Corn Pudding is a tradition in the south and goes well with many foods, ham in particular. There are many recipes for Corn Pudding … all fairly similar… proportions change slightly with different recipes. I’ve made this numerous times adjusting the butter or sour cream or sugar amounts… the recipe below is the result of all the tweaking.

I posted a recipe for Corn Casserole last fall which is similar, but has cheese as an ingredient…. both casseroles are very good. I would make the Corn Casserole if my other foods didn’t contain any cheese… and this one if other food items on my menu had cheese in them.

The recipe is extremely easy and quick to put together… a great side dish.

I hope you enjoy it!

mmmmm...corn pudding. This is a must have at least once a year for us...usually Thanksgiving & sometimes Easter, too! ....hmmmm, I wonder why don't do it more often? May have to change that!

This is so new to me - never had corn pudding - must give it a go! Looks very tasty and comforting and scrumptious.

It's relatively new to me too... I grew-up in the north and we didn't have this.... now that I'm primarily in the south I'm discovering all these new dishes... which is a good thing... a very good thing.
