This is the one dish that Tasia's son, Kelly, requests every Thanksgiving. Take one bite of the rich custard and you'll know why.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add corn and onion, and sauté 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool 10 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, whisk together eggs and next 2 ingredients in a large bowl; gradually whisk in goat cheese until blended. Whisk in basil and next 3 ingredients; stir in corn mixture and 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese until blended. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2-qt. baking dish; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven to a wire rack, and cool 15 minutes.

Only thing I did differently was put the pan in a water bath. Kept the custard from over heating. Neat time (Christmas) will red and green peppers. How festive!

My favorite dish this year! The goat cheese makes the dish!

Um, yours will not look anything like the photo- they must have put a whole nother cup of cheese on the top, not 1/4 cup like the recipe says. Also, I would recommend a 9 by 13 pan instead of a 2 quart, because it took at least an hour, and that was jacking up the temp by 25-50 degrees. I knew I did not want to use expensive goat cheese in this, so I used ricotta- really glad I did not waste good flavorful cheese! The flavor of this dish was good, but it was embarrassing to have to put it on the table mid-way through the Thanksgiving meal because it was still not done when everything else was... use a 9x13! Not as creamy as I would have thought either.

My friends and I really enjoyed this corn pudding. It took a full hour for the middle to set. My only criticism is that the goat cheese overpowered the corn flavor. If you are looking for a corn pudding that has a pronounced corn flavor, this would not be the one to try.
