Thyme Scented Corn Pudding

Thyme Scented Corn Pudding

A savory pudding made rich from eggs and butter creating the perfect backdrop for baking golden kernels of sweet corn and leaves of fresh thyme. It’s simple to make and delivers just the right touch for any holiday table.

Corn pudding is an old Southern dish. It’s a delicious way to dress up one of the South’s favorite vegetables for company. And best of all it’s made using pantry staples.

The luscious custard base is made with eggs, milk and butter plus flour, along with a touch of sugar and a generous sprinkling of thyme leaves, all whisked together to envelope those tantalizing bits of corn. Luckily the thyme on my patio weathered the cold snap but in a pinch you can certainly use dried thyme.

The prep is quick, whisking up the ingredients before the corn pudding is off to the oven for a slow bake. What emerges is a beautiful pudding with a light, silky custard and pops of fall colors peaking through.

Truly one of the most wonderful things about this time of year is the food and this delightfully delicious dish will fit quite nicely into your holiday menu!
