It’s time for Mystery Dish again, and today I’m bringing you Sweet Corn Pudding! If you are new here, I’ve been doing a series with a group of other bloggers where someone picks a list of ingredients, and we have to come up with a recipe using some number of things from the list. My first two months weren’t too challenging, and I made Cilantro Lime Hummus and Lemon Zucchini Muffins.

This month’s list was a different story. I looked at it several times before coming up with this sweet corn pudding recipe idea. We were required to use three ingredients from the following: Peaches, cheddar cheese, green beans, corn, chicken, nectarines, butter, pecans, heavy cream, pesto, and coconut milk/cream.

For some reason this list really stumped me. Everything I thought of only used two ingredients or was too close to something I had made before. In fact, this sweet corn pudding is kinda close to my Cornbread Casserole with Chicken recipe, but that one uses boxed cornbread mix. I felt like making this one from scratch was enough of a change to be worthy of a new recipe. Plus, I just really like cornbread casserole. (I hope you do too!)

This old-fashioned Sweet Corn Pudding is a great holiday side dish, or pair it with pork or chicken any time of year!

This corntastic recipe features polenta, creamed corn, and whole kernel corn. Despite the name, it’s a bit firm in texture. If you want a softer pudding, you could increase the sour cream and milk. My husband doesn’t like mushy foods, so I made this the way he likes.

You could enjoy this sweet corn pudding with Thanksgiving dinner, alongside carnitas, with pork chops, or in so many ways. It goes with just about everything if you ask me. Be sure to leave me a comment letting me know how you like it at your house!

Really, Andi!!? For over 70 years I’ve been making it my mother’s way, but I tried your version – now this is an 88 years old lady’s go-to recipe from now on. Moms recipe was made with crumbled up crackers – this is 99% better. BTW, Andi was the name my customers called me when I had my own handy man business back when. My last name was Anderson, then. LOL

I had never heard of corn pudding. I just made your exact recipe, and we absolutely loved it. Thanks for posting it.

This pudding sounds really yummy! We love corn, cornbread and pudding so this should be just the thing for us. I’m going to change it a bit as I don’t eat sour cream but I think that it will turn out great. Thanks for all the ideas!

YES! Do you remember the Chevy’s radio commercial where the guy called it “that little corn thing”? I probably sound crazy, but maybe you know what I’m talking about. I love it!

Hi, Rust. I’ve had something like this at a tex-mex place called Chevy’s, and I always loved it there! I’m glad you liked my recipe and that it satisfied your craving :) Have a good weekend!

I love corn pudding! In fact, I love just about every corn dish, so I’m going to have to try your cornbread casserole too! This looks so good, Andi!

Thank you, Zainab! I felt like it wasn’t creative enough, but like I said, this list challenged me! Using butter as one of the ingredients seemed too easy ;) I have been so busy this week that I’m behind on everything, but I can’t wait to make my way through everyone else’s recipes soon! Hope you are doing well.

Oh my goodness this sounds so good. My grandmother used to make something similar to this. I am going to have to add this to an upcoming menu plan and do some baked chicken thighs with it.

Thanks for the great reminder of a wonderful recipe idea!

Thank you, Felicia! Do you have a good chicken recipe? I’ll go poke around your site to see. I have a Buttermilk Baked Chicken recipe that I used on drumsticks but would also be great on thighs. I use chicken breasts a lot but need different kinds of recipes for dark meat.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
