One of my favorite sides is the corn pudding dish. Usually I go right for Ina Garten’s but thought I’d try something new this year. I saw this one from Alton and was intrigued.

I used the Parmesan cheese but think I would substitute cheddar next time. I would also add a cup of fresh corn.

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, whole grain, stone ground
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Ground black pepper

Sweat onions with butter and herbs in an oven safe skillet until translucent.
Combine corn, cream, eggs, baking powder, cornmeal, Parmesan, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add cubed bread and fold to combine. Pour batter into skillet, right on top of the onion mixture. Bake 50 minutes, or until set. Cool slightly before serving.
