Reviews forHearty Corn Pudding
"Just read this and want to make it for dinner tonight. But I will have to improvise a bit - have only frozen corn, will use the whole pack, putting half of it into the blender to simulate (I hope!) creamed corn; I have half 'n half (fat-free), will use that instead of cream; finely chopped Spanish onion - no scallions in the house just now. The seasonings sound perfect - a mix of hot and sweet. And I can't wait to try it with the maple syrup!! Wow - speaking of comfort food!"
"This has become a family favorite! It's good enough that that we don't put any maple syrup on it. I have also used regular onion before."
"I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 T. and used frozen corn instead of canned whole kernel corn and did not use the optional maple syrup. It was delicious and a wonderful creamy texture!"
