Corn Pudding

Corn Pudding is everyone's favorite dish at our house. Who doesn't like corn? I was going to wait until it got a little closer to Thanksgiving before I posted this recipe. However, I thought that you might want to give it a try out before the big day.

This recipe is not only delicious, inexpensive and simple to make but you can bake it the night before and just reheat it. It's a perfect dish to bring to the Thanksgiving table whether you're a guest or the one that is hosting the feast. The following recipe will yield about 6 servings. (I always double the ingredients and use a larger baking pan for Thanksgiving.)

Corn Pudding

  • 1 stick margarine, melted
  • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can creamed corn
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 box of Jiffy Corn Bread Mix

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Pour into a greased baking pan or casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

**I found this Thanksgiving Tradition online and would like to share it with you. During these hard times, we all might want to give it a try.

Thanksgiving Tradition - Five Kernels of Corn

The year following the first Thanksgiving brought greater hardship than the first. During the Starving Time, according to tradition, the Pilgrims had only a daily ration of five kernels of corn apiece. Still, they did not give in to bitterness, but trusted their Lord.

Many families now practice this tradition: beside each place at the Thanksgiving table are five kernels of dried corn. During the meal, a special cup is passed around the table. Each member of the family drops a kernel into the cup while sharing something for which he is grateful. The cup goes around until all the kernels are used and all the thanks are said.

  1. This has been a really tough year for me because I have been out of work. I started reading this recipe because I LOVE corn. Then I got to the tradition you cared enough to share. I am in near tears right now because it is such a touching tradition and I am definitely going to incorporate this into my Thanksgiving celebration this year.

    Thank You
