The ingredients are not necessarily what you would expect for a corn-based dish, but each one is vital for the overall success of the dish. Obviously, corn, milk, butter, half and half, eggs, and flour are part of the list of ingredients you will have to acquire to make the dish, but you are also going to need salt and pepper, as well as dry mustard. Soufflés are always delicious, but when you put the emphasis on the corn, there is no denying how special they can be.

Everyone who takes a bite of your delicious corn soufflé dish will be clamoring to have you share the recipe with them because of how unforgettable it will be. That is the evidence of a meal that has been labored over with love completely. It sounds cliché, but it’s true. When you emphasize the cooking process, great rewards will be reaped.

Making Corn Soufflé

Because corn soufflé is a bit of an undertaking as a recipe, with numerous steps and at least one hour allotted for cooking, it might not necessarily be a main course or a side dish that can be whipped up in an instant to add an extra bit of flair to your average weekday dinner. Instead, corn soufflé makes the most sense when it is cooked in accordance with a number of high-quality foods that people tend to look forward to.

One of the best outlets we can think of for cooking this side dish is for Thanksgiving, or another such holiday; dinner when your family is gathered together. It can easily be made alongside stuffing, mashed potatoes, and turkey as long as you carve out a spot for the corn soufflé inside of your oven. By making it for a holiday dinner like this, you are turning what could just be an average vegetable dish thrown in to add some color to the feast’s table into a highly-anticipated dish all its own. No longer will corn be an afterthought; instead, it will be one of the top highlights.

Additionally, corn soufflé could also serve as an appetizer for a meal like this. It makes for an excellent brunch dish that could easily delight your guests who are excited about the meal. Soufflés are perfect, light meals to whet the appetites of all involved while still keeping with the same theme of the meal.

Is Corn Actually Nutritious?

Whether or not corn is nutritious has been debated in health circles for a long time. Some professionals argue that corn isn't very healthy, due to its tendency to spike blood sugar levels. Others argue that its high fiber content makes it worth eating.

Among these debates, there's even confusion over whether corn is digestible or not. You may have been told at one point or another that there's no point to eating corn, since we can't digest it. This isn't completely true. While it is true that we can't fully digest corn, we can still digest parts of it.

Therefore, there is some potential benefit to eating corn. Whether or not the benefits are worth it to you depends on your particular dietary needs and concerns. If you're diabetic or prediabetic, corn may not be a wise choice. If you need more fiber in your diet, corn can be a great way to get that.

Corn is also an easier vegetable to get kids to eat. Since it tends to be on the sweeter side, kids will complain less when they're supposed to eat it. This is especially true when it's put into something like this delicious recipe. Corn may be one of the few ways that you can get your kids to eat more fiber.

  1. Set the oven rack to the middle position. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter a 1 ½ quart glass or ovenproof baking dish or coat with vegetable spray.
  2. Combine salt, pepper, and mustard in a small bowl and set aside. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl . Place egg whites in the bowl of standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
  3. Melt butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat, add flour, and stir with wooden spoon until combined.

  5. Add salt, pepper, and mustard, and stir to combine. Remove sauce from heat and spoon into large bowl. Beat yolks with fork to combine.
