Corn Souffle

A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine.

-Ann Bronte

 

Corn Souffle has been the plague upon my conversation recently.

Example: I call my mother the day before Thanksgiving to see what whe’s up to and how she’s doing.

I mention that I spoke to my sister that morning.

To which she replies,”Did you think to give her the recipe for Corn Souffle? It’s so cheap and easy. If she brought that to Thanksgiving everyone would think she’s quite the cook.”

“Ma. Everyone knows she’s doesn’t love to cook. I didn’t tell her…” I start.

Mom leaps in, ” You NEED to call her back NOW and give her the recipe. I brought a few pans of it over to Mrs. So-and-so’s house for the big dinner and even the kids loved it! I tell you, there was hardly any left and Mrs. So-and-so said she had to have it.” She chuckles.

I know something is REALLY good when my mother starts harping on it.

When my dad was in the last weeks of life, the family gathered.

My cousin (who is a super foodie) brought this excellent Corn Souffle to accompany the wonderful main dishes that started piling up in the fridge from sweet friends trying to help feed our rather large family that was coming and going for several weeks.

Mom called to tell me that when I arrived the next day that I MUST try the Corn Souffle.

When I poked through the fridge the next afternoon, mom confessed that everyone had polished it off that morning.

I must have not been feeling very corny because I know she told me the recipe but it didn’t stick.

Several more times in the following years she commented to me that I really should be making this Corn Souffle. Eh… on my list ma… kind of… well frankly, the idea of corn casserole sounded rather irpy to me thank you.

Back to Thanksgiving… my sister calls to wish us a very Happy Thanksgiving.

“So how long were you supposed to give me the recipe for Corn Souffle?” Tiffy teasingly starts out.

“Gosh woman, like since yesterday. What the heck?” I say.

“I talked to mom.” she says and we both crack up.

Behold The Family Game Of Telephone! 🙂

Okay, I give up! I’ll make the Corn Souffle!

Guess what???

It is FANTASTIC!!

Nothing gets easier or really much cheaper than this!

Butter or grease a 9 x 13 inch oven safe dish

In a bowl pour:

1 Can of Cream-Style Corn- undrained

1 Can Corn (sweeter Nibblets corn is best)

1 melted stick of butter or margarine

2 Eggs

1 Box “Jiffy” brand Corn Muffin Mix

Jiffy makes some excellent mixes and they are SO CHEAP! The corn muffin mix I used from this was from a package of 4 mixes that the company sent me after I wrote them an email thanking them and inquiring about coupons. They also sent me 3 smaller cookbooks that use their mixes. See, it pays to Contact Companies For Coupons! Thanks Jiffy for being so incredible and making one customer VERY grateful! You can usually find their mixes for about .69 cents.

Sprinkle the bowl with salt and pepper.

Of course I included a dash or two of Garlic Salt instead but I’m just rotten that way. It’s a sweeter dish so don’t go crazy on the flavoring or you’ll lose the sweet corn flavor that we’re seeking here.

Mix everything up and pour it right into that buttered dish.

It’s not much to look at now but it will become a delicious side dish!

Pop that dish in the oven that has been pre-heated to 325 degrees for 1 hour.

One hour and it’s browned and ready to serve.

The Handsome Prince described it as the greatest cornbread he’s ever had.

Normally he HATES corn bread… go figure.

Min said it was delicious and requested a second larger helping.

Luc doesn’t like bread much so he said it was fine but he’d like some plain buttered corn instead if it was up to him.

Kenzie and I both had seconds too.

My Handsome Prince suggested that this Corn Souffle would be excellent as a picnic dish or for pot luck.

His description was right on the money… this Corn Souffle could also be called The Worlds Best Cornbread and you wouldn’t be lying.

Light fluffy and takes the veggie and bread, tosses them into one outstanding side dish that is even amazing cold!

As much as I hate to admit it…

Yes, Ma. You were right, again. Corn Souffle is delicious!

So good that I’m sharing it here my dear.

It will become a staple of our holiday table now.

A frequent featured guest at our week night dinner table.

It’s so simple, easy and inexpensive to create a dish that people will rave about.

This dish costs $3.00 or less to make.

I am able to cut this dish into 12 generous squares… not a scrap is ever left.

For the 6 of us, that’s only .50 cents per person.

Serve it at a holiday dinner, pot luck or gathering and you can serve 12 people a hearty scrumptious side dish for no more than

.25 cents per person!

Now you’re thinking like a super saver!

Corn Souffle allows even beginners to make a praise worthy side dish that wont bust the budget.

If that’s the case, I need to run quick and stash Mt. St. Laundry better.

Keepin’ It Corny,

Meg xoxo

    This is the recipe I have been looking for. I had it at a family dinner and my cousin rattled off the ingredients but I didn’t catch all the details. Can’t wait to make it this fall.
