I LOVED this recipe. It was the star of my Thanksgiving menu!!!! My relatives would not stop talking about it the whole meal.

I made this for Thanksgiving and was also disappointed. It looked pretty but did not turn out creamy or custardy at all. I also thought it had too much corn. Wouldn't make this one again.

I was quite excited to try out this recipe, but unfortunately this one was a disappointment. Much too bland and eggy. With added spice/cheese/etc., this pudding would make for a decent breakfast or brunch dish.

I'm sorry it was a disappoint! It's certainly a traditional dish that doesn't overpower the rest of your table. Happy Thanksgiving.

How does this come out? Eggy? Custardy?

More eggy than custardy, but still sweet from the corn. The original family recipe has a 1 tablespoon of sugar which I cut down. Hope that helps!
