Corn Pudding

Similar to a soufflé, this corn pudding puffs up, then sinks a little as it cools. It makes a stunning side dish for any Grilled Chicken. Or serve the pudding as a simple main course, paired with heirloom tomatoes and crusty bread. This recipe can easily be halved; bake the pudding in a shallow 2-quart baking dish for 45 minutes.

Preheat an oven to 350°F. Grease a 17-by-10-inch roasting pan or baking dish. Sprinkle the bread crumbs and ¼ cup of the cheese in the bottom of the dish. In a food processor, combine 2 cups of the corn, the shallots, cream, Tabasco, salt and pepper and process until creamy. In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Stir in the cream mixture, the remaining corn, the remaining 1¼ cups cheese and the thyme. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake until the pudding is lightly browned on top and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 2 hours. Serve immediately. Serves 12 to 14.
