Corn Pudding with Bacon & Rosemary

Corn pudding is a Southern favorite, often made with canned creamed corn. We prefer the texture of frozen corn, which we pair with crème fraîche for its creaminess and tang.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 4 ounces bacon

  • 5 large eggs, divided

  • ¼ cup cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 cup reduced-fat milk

  • 1 cup crème fraîche or sour cream

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 4 cups frozen corn, thawed

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 7 minutes. Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.

  3. Whisk 1 egg, cornstarch and baking powder in a large bowl until smooth. Add the remaining eggs and whisk until combined. Whisk in milk, crème fraîche (or sour cream), salt and pepper. Fold in corn and rosemary. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Crumble the bacon over the top.

  4. Bake the pudding until it is puffed and golden around the edges and still slightly jiggly in the center, 40 to 55 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
