Mary’s Corn Pudding

Published by under Family,Recipes

This recipe is the BOMB! It is 1) Super Easy, 2) Pretty much FOOLPROOF, 3) Delicious, and 4) Always a Smash Hit.

The hardest part is grating the cheese.

A friend spent days preparing a perfect “Martha Stuart” thanksgiving feast, with fresh and handmade EVERYTHING. I brought the Corn Pudding, and that’s the only thing people talked about. (I felt terrible, btw.)

Also, this recipe begs to be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, etc. In fact, I buy one of the cheap LARGE rectangular foil roasting pans and make enough to fill it. (that’s 8 times this version, I think)

So, without further ado:

1 can creamed corn
1 cup corn muffin mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs
½ lb chedder cheese
2 sm cans chopped green chilis

grease pan
cook 40-50 min
@ 425

Letterbox flag laughing “Hardi-ho-hee”
Envelope singing “At Last I Am Free”
Stamp sticky licker picks paper-cut blood
And turns from a trickle to river to flood

Argyle paperweight dancing a jig
Chokes on a prune that thinks its a fig
Fork and knife napkin unfold for the cat
Pawsing to spit at the big purple hat

Wine bottle corker despairing the screw
“Turn not that implement thrust into you!”
Merlot and Sherry prove fickle and fight
Shocked, then poor Red turns suddenly white

Impudent light bulb refuses to glow
Sleepwalking peach tree refuses to grow
Seedlings sleep sweetly in flowery beds
Visions of flatware spin off with their heads

Flatware and seedlings, peach tree and light
Wine goes not softly toward this good night
Hats, cats and napkins… well, you do the math
Letterbox flag always gets the last laugh
