Silky Smooth Corn Pudding
Silky Smooth Corn Pudding ♥ Recipe Today's extra-easy Thanksgiving vegetable recipe: An oh-so-smooth custardy corn pudding that takes all of ten minutes to throw together. Now don't turn up your nose that it starts with a can of creamed corn. The resulting custard is slightly sweet, oh-so-smooth that I promise, no one will know. Everyone will think you are a kitchen magician! Silky Smooth Corn Pudding

Have you developed your own style, a personal preference for taste and timing? I sure have. When it's supper for one or two, my style is to make it fresh, eat it asap, no setting the slow cooker in the morning, no putting aside meals for the freezer.

But for parties and family gatherings? I am the make-ahead queen. That's why virtually every single Thanksgiving recipe here on A Veggie Venture includes tips for making a dish the day before. Last year's Thanksgiving, I cooked and prepped so much on the Wednesday that by Thursday morning, all that was left was to "cook" was the turkey my grandmother's butterhorns in the oven: talk about a relaxing day!

This easy corn pudding recipe strays from style but compensates by prepping – assembling, really is all – in a flat ten minutes. For such simplicity, the results are astounding, this dish looks and tastes like the cook spent time and effort coddling a custard.

ALANNA's TIPS & KITCHEN NOTES
Silky Smooth Corn Pudding ♥ Recipe I've made Silky Smooth Corn Pudding three times over the years. Once, the custard expressed a buttery liquid, very tasty but it makes it harder to serve. I didn't figure out how/why this happened. It might be prevented by cooking the pudding in a hot water bath.
Silky Smooth Corn Pudding ♥ Recipe Because of the eggs, I don't recommend prepping this ahead of time. Thirty minutes or so would be okay but no more.
Silky Smooth Corn Pudding ♥ Recipe My friend Mary's recipe called for 4 tablespoons butter, I don't find it necessary for taste or texture.
