1Separate eggs; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Grease a 2½-qt. souffle dish; dust with 2 Tbsp. cornmeal.
2Place corn, milk and sugar in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Add cream and melted butter; cover and process 15-30 seconds longer.
3In a saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir 5 minutes. Stir in corn, cream cheese, 1 tsp. salt, pepper and remaining cornmeal until blended. Remove to a bowl.
4Whisk a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to bowl, whisking constantly. In a bowl, beat egg whites with baking soda and remaining salt on high speed until stiff. Gently stir a fourth of the egg whites into corn mixture. Fold in remaining egg whites. Transfer to prepared dish.
5Bake in a preheated 350º oven for 45-50 minutes or until the top is deep golden brown and puffed and center appears set. Serve immediately.
