I made several Thanksgiving dishes for my friend Margie and her family this year. Margie's daughter loves corn, and Margie asked me to find a corn dish for her similar to the corn souffle that Margie used to make before a bad back inhibited her ability to spend hours on her feet in the kitchen. Of course, souffles can't be made ahead, so that was out of the question.
Anyway.... I searched a LOT and found Sagaponack corn pudding by Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa, and I liked the technique in it, but not the combination of flavors. The pudding is incredibly easy to assemble despite the list of ingredients, so I recreated it with flavors I thought worked better than those in the original.
So, apologies to the Contessa, but this is my version.
With a green salad, this is a great unexpected lunch and also the perfect side to roasted chicken or roast beef.
