This was one of the first dishes I made before I considered myself "a cook" and took to a gathering. Before I got married and moved into a home of my own, I didn't do much cooking and had no real interest in learning to cook. I got married and realized I had to feed myself and my husband so I started cooking a little and realized I really enjoyed it and I wasn't terrible at it either. The first time I made this I was still in college and going to my boyfriend's family Thanksgiving. It just so happens I married that boyfriend; I guess he liked my corn pudding :)
This recipe never fails and everyone always loves it. In fact, I rarely have leftovers to take home if I've taken this dish to a pot-luck style dinner. Like many of my other recipes, it's super easy and doesn't require any special cooking technique. I obtained this recipe from my mother but I'm not sure where the original recipe originated from.
Next time you're asked to bring a side dish, make this corn pudding. I guarantee at least two people will ask for the recipe. And is there anything better than having someone ask for your recipe? In my book, that's the ultimate compliment!
