Fresh corn is hard to pass up. Don’t get me wrong, canned and frozen corn work well in any number of recipes or even served as is, but fresh has that extra flavor and texture that elevates it to another level.
Corn casserole, corn pudding and lots of other corn recipes are tempting when corn is your favorite vegetable. There are always the ones that we mean to try, but never get around to making. Then, there are the ones that we invent just because the ingredients sound as if they belong together. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t.
Here’s one that was simply enjoyable to dream up and even more enjoyable to eat. It’s a keeper, whether it’s for a holiday dinner or one to put out when the family is gathered together for another occasion. It also incorporates the crispness of fresh and the creaminess of canned creamed corn.
It has a soufflé appearance when done; however, it tends to deflate rapidly as a soufflé will.
Serve immediately, if possible, but be reassured the taste will be just as wonderful if it isn’t.
