A Few Recipes in Time for the Thanksgiving Holidays!

Published on 20 November 2023 at 05:42

     Since my Grandparents have all fallen asleep, one of the things that I hold dear to my heart is the way each of them enjoyed preparing delicious dishes that the entire family loved and enjoyed!  Thankfully, I was always an inquisitive child who asked lots of questions and they often shared some of their secrets with me. Now, I won't tell you everything, but I will share a few recipes with you! Hopefully they will come in handy, and you can add them to your own table. Have a blessed holiday season.


Grandma's Homemade Corned Pudding

My Grandmothers Corned Pudding recipe is one of my family favorites, especially during the holiday! Corned Pudding or Corn Pudding, as some called it, is a creamy corn casserole side dish that's perfect for holiday dinners. To be honest it's so easy to make, you don't have to wait for the holiday.  It can be a great additional dish for dinner any day of the week!  Traditionally, my family enjoys this dish during, Passover, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! 


Each of the canned ingredients can of course be substituted with fresh or frozen.

Some of these ingredients can be omitted if you have strict dietary restrictions, however this is how we do it!!! 

  • 34oz Canned Cream Corn.
  • 15oz Drained Canned Whole Kernel Corn. (or Frozen but thawed)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar.
  • 5 Eggs.
  • 4 Tbsp Cornstarch. 
  • 1 Tbsp Dried minced onion.
  • 1tsp Seasoning salt. (can be omitted)
  • 1tsp Dry mustard powder. (can be omitted)
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder (or fresh minced Garlic Cloves)
  • 1/2 Cup Milk. (1%, 2%, or Silk Milk can be used) 
  • 1/2 Cup Butter.
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg. (can be omitted)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon. (can be omitted)

Preparations. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray your baking dish with cooking spray or oil.

Make the wet mixture. Combine the cream of corn, whole kernel, and eggs in a large bowl and stir until mixed thoroughly.

Make the dry mixture. Whisk the sugar, cornstarch, seasoned salt, dry mustard, and minced onion together in a small bowl.

Finish the custard mixture. Fold the dry mixture into the wet ingredients. Then stir in the milk and melted butter until evenly mixed.

Bake. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake at 400°F for an hour, stirring once. When removed from the oven, the casserole should be set, but soft, and light golden brown on top. Serve right out of the oven or allow to cool if you like. Enjoy!
