Recently I made a recipe that was in Parade Magazine that was a favorite of novelist Dean Koontz. Well, I thought that the recipe was pretty bland (but I loved the roasted corn taste). This is my version that is spiced up and with a few more ingredients. —dymnyno

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 pound package of frozen corn, or canned, or fresh
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ounce asiago cheese, grated
  • 3 tablespoons grated horseradish
  1. In a large saucepan, bring the milk and butter to a simmer and add the flour. Simmer until the mixture starts to thicken.
  2. Drain the corn and add to the white sauce. Add the eggs and mix together. (don't worry about the eggs; the cool corn will prevent the eggs from cooking)
  3. Add the grated asiago and the grated horseradish and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour into a shallow pan or glass tart pan and spread evenly.Baking this in an iron skillet would also be perfect.
  5. Bake for about 35 minutes at 375 until the corn starts to turn brown.
  6. Remove from oven and cut into wedges and serve.

I'm making this for tomorrow! So excited to use up some of the huge bag of organic frozen corn!

I love corn puddings, and I've never made one with roasted corn. The horseradish sounds terrific.

I bet the cheese and horseradish really take this dish above and beyond the original version! Love!

My, my, this looks tasty. I don't have any Asiago, but I could see using any number of other cheeses in it. I'm thinking I'd use a tart feta, to counter the sweetness of the corn. Oh, I can see having some serious fun with this one. Not sure I'd want to share it with seven other people, though . . . . .;o)

Baking this in an iron skillet would be just fine.

Yum, I love corn pudding and this sounds great with horseradish. Do you think I could bake it in a cast iron skillet?
