We love, love, love creamy corn pudding, and it is so easy to make.
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2-2 1/4 cups fresh cut corn - If you don't have fresh corn, substitute canned corn.
Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Add flour, sugar, and salt. Stir until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly so mixture doesn't stick. Gradually add milk. Continue stirring and cooking until thick and bubbly. Remove from heat, and stir in corn.
In separate bowl beat eggs well. Gradually stir about 1/4 of hot mixture into beaten eggs. Then add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly.
Pour into a greased casserole. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
If you are an okra fan, you can add pods of whole okra that have been steamed about 5-7 minutes until tender but still firm. Then, cut into 1/2-inch slices, and season with a little salt and pepper. The okra is added to the mixture just before pouring into the casserole dish.
Serve and enjoy!
