Last week was a baking (not to mention eating) frenzy around the Obenhaus' abode. I did my best to rustle up everyone's favorites dishes.
This one is my husband's and it's easy peasy. His family calls it corn pudding. I don't find it very pudding-like, more like kinda cakey, but it is all kinds of yummy.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1 - 15.5 oz can cream style corn
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 - 4 oz. can diced green chilies
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 2 eggs, well beaten
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
Dump everything into a bowl and mix 'er up.
Now I know what some of you lilly-livered folks north of Oklahoma are thinkin'. Eww, chilies. Eww, cayenne.
Dad blern weenies.
Well, you can skip the cayenne, IF YOU MUST (oh, go ahead, be brave and add just a dash). The green chilies really aren't hot though. Just flavorful. And we're all about flavor, right?
Now we'll just pour that mixture into a greased casserole, bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. It should be golden to slightly brown on the top and around the edges. I'd love to show you the finished product, I really would, but, well.... I forgot to take the pic. Everyone was chompin' at the bit to eat and I got so caught up in the frenzy I forgot.
I'm sorry. I won't do it again. 'Cept for that other recipe I'll share later where I forgot to capture the finished product.
So how was your turkey day? Are you still eating leftovers? I am. They're still yummy and I haven't sprouted feathers yet.
