Cajun Corn Pudding Spices Up Holiday Meals
Nashville, TN – Meal planning usually starts with a meat or main dish, but often it’s the side dishes that add a special flair. If your menu is a bit bland, add a little punch with this rich and creamy corn pudding.
“The good thing about this recipe is that it can be tailored to your families’ taste. If you like it spicy, add more cayenne and even a dash of hot pepper sauce. Or if you prefer a mild flavor, leave out the cayenne and pepper sauce completely. It is absolutely delicious either way,” observes the Martha White® baking expert Linda Carman.
