|A mix of tender frozen and creamy corn, baked in a savory egg custard.|
Corn Pudding suffers a similar identity crisis as corn casserole. What defines it is most often what you grew up with and nobody makes any of it the same way.
What some folks call corn spoon bread, others call corn casserole… and vice versa. What some call corn casserole, yet others call corn pudding… and vice versa. It's kinda like that whole potatoes au gratin versus scalloped potatoes. Or what really is a po'boy, what makes up Comeback sauce, or the ingredients for a real southern cornbread. For me, when we're talking about corn pudding, I think of a corn-based, savory egg custard… with lots of eggs.
