Dee's Story

I have had many versions of corn pudding but I have tweaked this to suit my families tastes. Many recipes have added sugar to them but we like it better with season salt and pepper. We think the corn & cornbread mix adds enough sugar. Maybe it's a California thing, not to add so much sugar to things. I am also a diabetic and don't need it. I also changed the name from corn pudding to corn casserole because I think the corn pudding concept is hard to grasp for some people and turns them off to it. It really is a casserole anyway. Enjoy!

cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 10 inch square or 7"x11" inch pan with cooking spray. In large bowl whisk together all ingredients except the last 3 items until well blended. pour into prepared pan. In a bowl, mix together the crushed crackers, melted butter, and shreaded cheddar cheese. Carefully sprinkle over the corn mixture. Cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and continue to bake until browned..about 20 more minutes. I make this every Thanksgiving without jalapinos, but other times I make it with them. This year(2010) I delegated the work, so I had my 9 yr old grandson make it. It turned out better than mine. Yummmy. Great job Cayden! Enjoy!

    I have tried several different recipes for this dish as well, but yours sounds perfect! My hubby & I both like spicy, so the jalapenos, onions,& roasted red pepper sounds great! Have you ever made it with diced green chilis? That sounds like a great compliment to your great recipe! Can't wait to try it!
