Corn & Cheese Side Dish

This is such a nice side dish and as it is baked, it is not like your usual vegetable side.  When I serve corn as a side, it is mostly corn-on-the-cob, mini corns or corn kernels drenched in butter and black Pepper.

Don't get me wrong, I love all the above, but everyone wants something different now and then.  This is a very nice accompaniment to braai's {BBQ's} as well.

This is another one of those dishes which  puffs up so nicely and as soon as it is removed from the oven it deflates.  Not that it does anything to the flavor though!

***Note: be sure to use the creamed style corn in the can as you need the moisture as well***

Corn & Cheese Side Dish

1 cup Milk
3 TB Butter
1 can (410g) Creamed style Corn {Sweetcorn}
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups Fresh White Bread Crumbs
1/2 t Salt
Pinch Cayenne Pepper
3 Extra-Large Eggs, separated

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Heat the Milk and Butter in a small pot until it reaches boiling point - remove from heat - add the Corn, Cheddar, Bread Crumbs, Salt, Cayenne Pepper and the Egg Yolks - stir and mix well.
3.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff - fold gently in with the mixture - transfer to the prepared oven dish.
4.) Bake 45 minutes until puffed and golden brown.

Remove from the oven - let it rest for 5 minutes and serve!

Enjoy and let me know what you served it with ...?

  1. I am going to a family get together soon and will be making this dish to take. :) We are having ham, chicken and dumplings and greenbean casserole there, along with peanut butter pie and multitudes of other delicious dishes...I'm sure this will be a huge hit. Thanks!
