Description

Fresh Corn Spoon Bread is a Thanksgiving Day must-have. This version is 100% homemade and the perfect addition to your dinner table. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Whole Milk
  • 1-¼ cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1-½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 whole Jalapenos, Seeds And Stems Removed, Diced (optional)
  • ⅓ cups Green Onions, White And Light Green Parts Sliced
  • 1-¼ cup Frozen Corn Kernels, Thawed
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Cubed
  • 3 whole Large Eggs, Yolks And Whites Separated
  • ½ cups Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • Optional For Garnish: Sliced Green Onions, Grated White Cheddar Cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF and grease an 8×8 baking dish. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, combine the milk, cornmeal, salt and pepper over medium heat. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Once the cornmeal reaches a boil, lower the temperature to low and continue to cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently until the cornmeal has thickened substantially. Remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.

While your cornmeal is cooking, heat the olive oil in a non-stick saute pan over medium heat. Add the jalapeños (optional) and green onion and season with a dash of salt and pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and add this into the bowl with the cooked cornmeal. Add the corn kernels and the butter to the bowl, and stir everything together to combine.

Now, one at a time add the egg yolks into the cornmeal mixture, completely stirring in each egg yolk before adding the next one. Stir in the sharp white cheddar cheese then set the bowl aside.

Using a hand mixer or stand mixer (with whisk attachment), beat your egg whites into stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites very gently into the cornmeal mixture until the ingredients are combined, but not over mixed. Pour the batter into your prepared baking dish.

Bake at 375 F for 25-30 minutes or until it has puffed up and browned slightly. Remove from oven, garnish with green onions and more grated white cheddar if you wish. Enjoy!
