First of all HAPPY EFFIN THANKSGIVING!! I know I did a Man Bait on Tuesday already with my amazing Oreo Dessert (which I made for my family for dessert today), but it’s a special occasion where people specifically wear stretchy pants so they can eat more, which also means that you bitches are getting a very special double dose of Murt’s Man Bait this week.
I took a vote the other day on Twitter to see what type of recipe you people wanted to see and the results are in:
It was a close race, but ultimately a Thanksgiving side dish was the winner!
With that being said, I’m not going for traditional here. I’m not giving you a recipe for stuffing or mashed potatoes, even though these are two of my favorite things in the entire Thanksgiving universe. I am going for something that’s been served in my family for years and years. Something that’s different than your typical side dish. I’m talking about CORN PUDDING. Yes. Corn pudding. I remember the first time my mom made it for Thanksgiving, I was super young and I thought the sound of it was weird, then I tried it and all bets were off. I mean this stuff is unfuckingbelievable. My mother has to make four pans of this every year because it’s probably the most requested side dish at our Thanksgiving table.
For this special edition of Man Bait I had my mom take pictures of her making the Corn Pudding to show you step by step pictures, so shout out to Kath for being a real gem and a good sport for Branded during her busy cooking day!
Recipe: Mom’s Thanksgiving Corn Pudding
Pair with: ANY and ALL alcohol served at Thanksgiving. GO NUTS PEOPLE! There will be zero discrimination today on alcohol choices.
-1/4 cup sugar
-3 Tablespoon flour
-2 tsp baking powder
-2 tsp salt
-6 large eggs
-2 cups heavy whipping cream
-1/2 cup melted butter
-6 cups corn (frozen and thawed)
-1 lightly greased 13×9 tin pan
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium sized bowl mix together your dry ingredients, the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
3. In a separate larger bowl, beat the 6 large eggs.
4. Next add the heavy cream, melted butter, and corn into the eggs until well creamed together.
5. Mix your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients until combined.
6. Pour your mixture into the greased pan and bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
7. After you take it out of the oven, let the corn pudding stand for 5 minutes before serving.
8. Get ready for some compliments!
Easy right? The next time someone asks you to bring a side dish, bring this. It’ll be different than any other dish there and everyone will be licking their plates wishing they had more. You will be dubbed the King or Queen of Thanksgiving for this one and you can quote me on that!
From me to you-Happy Thanksgiving, CHEERS, Get Weird and Wear Your Stretchies!!!
