Here’s a nice little Throwback Thursday post for you. At this time of year, you shouldn’t have a hard time coming across corn (if you do, where are you living?!) I bought it for 30 cents an ear in New Jersey last week, gotta love the Garden State summertime produce. I was also buying boatloads of blueberries…$6 for a 6-package flat? Well, I didn’t want to lose money, and there were pies to be made. But that’s a story for another time.
For now I just wanted to share with you a recipe I’ve been reminiscing about: Ken Haedrich’s Savory Corn Pudding Pie. I do hope you’ve been keeping up with my friend Ken at thepieacademy.com, he’s much better at keeping his blog up-to-date than I and I’m really eager to try some of the new things he’s been posting about, like slab pie.
Without further ado, here’s the link to the Savory Corn Pudding Pie that Ken shared about a year ago. I tried it then, and it’s just about the tastiest thing you can do with an abundance of summer corn. If I had to put my finger on why, I might say the mustard is the trick. I’m a huge sucker for mustard in recipes. But then there’s also the yumminess from the green chilies and the way the cheesy filling gets a little brown on top…*sigh* I guess you’ll just have to try it yourself. Let me know what you think the secret is.
