Sisi’s Corn Pudding

Corn pudding – one of the most perfect sides dishes you can make.  I have a lot of recipes for corn pudding, and each one is just a little different.  Sometimes it comes out more like corn bread, sometimes more like an egg custard.  To me, it doesn’t really matter how it turns out, I always seem to enjoy that corn flavor.

I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, and I really liked the simplicity of it and how few ingredients there were.  I had some friends visiting for the weekend, and one of them asked me if I was making my own creamed corn – in a way, that’s exactly what this recipe was trying to accomplish.  Since fresh corn is not in season, I used canned – although I almost never do that.  I always try to use fresh corn whenever possible – and if I can’t – I use frozen.  Next time I made this I will try using frozen – I think it will taste even better.  This is the perfect side with BBQ – pork loin, steak, chicken, pretty much anything you put on your grill.  Hopefully as the summer progresses, I will get to some of my favorite corn side dishes – and you can compare for yourself.


  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted, divided, plus additional for dish
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 15 to 16 ounce cans corn kernels, drained, divided
