This corn pudding is a delicious corn casserole made rich with an egg and milk mixture. The corn pudding is stirred several times during the baking process. Sugar adds to the sweetness, but feel free to leave it out or use an alternative sweetener or sugar substitute. This Kentucky classic is a good choice for a Derby day dinner.
From Beaumont Inn Chef Nick Sundberg:
"This side dish is so popular that we offer it at lunch and dinner every day. The 3-step cooking process and the use of white corn make this a different and unique version of this Kentucky classic."
