Corn Pudding

We find ourselves craving the sweet comfort of this corn pudding side dish! Make it for a holiday, a potluck, or just a regular family meal!

Don’t be deceived by the title of this recipe. Just because it says “pudding” does not mean that this is a dessert. Quite the opposite – I’d say that this leans more into the casserole category, but it is definitely a side dish – not a main dish.

Corn Pudding recipe

We’ve made this recipe so many times over the last few months – it takes virtually no time at all to prep. Which was great around the holidays because I made it once before Thanksgiving, once for Thanksgiving, and again for Christmas, and then there was one more time in-between that it got made just because it is so good and everyone loves it. In fact, my Father-in-Love loves this dish so much that if there are ever any leftovers, he always asks to take them home!

Corn Pudding serving

I love how easy this is to prepare because if you’re making this for a holiday – Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter – it’s nice to have a dish that you can count on to always turn out perfectly. It’s also a comforting side dish – not fancy, no frills, but feels like down home (maybe Southern?) cooking. I especially love that we can make it even easier to make with packaged cornbread mix, which is just a great recipe staple to have on hand in your pantry. Cornbread just goes with so many main dishes…and so does this corn pudding.

Corn Pudding with eggs

You could serve this alongside our bbq chicken sandwiches, pulled pork (I’m actually working on a recipe for this right now), or oven bbq chicken, just to name a few main dish ideas. It’s also ideal for a potluck! I live in the PNW and our church loves a good potluck, but I have never seen this dish at one, so maybe something to consider (and I should consider!) making for your church potluck, bridal/baby shower, or family gathering.

Corn Pudding

I know Easter is just around the corner so definitely include this dish on your holiday menu, or if you’re just looking for a simple side to include in your next family meal…make this!
