Best Corn Pudding Casserole Recipe

Corn Pudding Casserole, also known as Southern corn pudding casserole, is a delicious corn dish made with canned corn, cream, butter, and basic baking ingredients. Or you can make it easier by replacing the dry ingredients with Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix.

The 1700s saw the emergence of corn pudding among the Native Americans. However, the casserole originated in the American South. We’re not positive which state it was, some suggest Texas, others Louisiana.

This recipe for a side dish dates back to the 1950s, when it gained popularity concurrently with other casseroles. While there are many delectable dishes available for holiday meals, I have found that this corn casserole recipe is the finest.

Instead of serving the same old green bean casserole at Thanksgiving dinner, try this delicious corn pudding casserole dish. For added taste, we included some Gruyere cheese, chopped shallots, brown sugar, and powdered garlic and onion. This simple corn casserole recipe is ideal for any holiday meal, including Christmas dinner and Thanksgiving dinner.

Actually, it works really well for a family supper any night of the week or for any festive table. You can eat it as a side dish or as a substantial main course by adding meat or more vegetables.
