A great inexpensive side dish for almost any meal! This is one of my favorites. I make it every Thanksgiving as it goes great with turkey.

  • Whisk together the cornmeal and baking soda in a small bowl; set aside. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl; stir in the whole kernel corn, cream-style corn, buttermilk, melted margarine, green chiles, and onion. Stir in the cornmeal mixture and 2 cups of the Cheddar cheese until only slight lumps of cornmeal remain; pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until firmed and lightly browned, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle with the remaining cheese; let stand 15 minutes before serving.

I made this today and it was a HUGE hit! Followed the recipe exactly... only thing I might change is to add something to spice it up a little just because I like spicy things. Read More

For those of us in this house who like onion/green pepper, this was a fabulous dish! The flavor and texture are wonderful, especially the crispy edges! Not having creamed corn, I pureed a can of whole corn, drained, and I doubt it made much flavor/texture difference. I will be making this dish again. Read More

I made this according to the recipe except I used 3/4 cup butter instead of 1 cup margarine added 1/4 tsp. pepper and used 2 cups of cheese instead of 3 cups. It turned out delicious--good flavor good consistency. We ate it all. Read More

This is a 5 star recipe. I made it last year for Thanksgiving and I'm being asked to make it again this year. It's easy to make and if you follow the directions it comes out perfect! Read More

I am nor much of a cook but next time I would like it to be a bit more moist/ fluffy.... it was just a bit dry. And some jalapeno or at least a can of green chiles might be good in it! Read More

I have baked this several times and it is always requested by my family at the holidays. If you prefer other flavors add green onions peppers and even bacon bits. But for us the original is still the best! Original recipe from Harriet Staley my school secretary. Read More

Excellent gluten-free option for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day dinner; I have replaced 1/2 of the butter with grapeseed oil to make it a little more heart-healthy and it still tastes great. My family loves this recipe! Read More
