This dish makes a creamy and comforting side to roasted meats and poultry. If you can’t find dried corn, use fresh or frozen, but omit the step of soaking the corn from the recipe.


  • 2 cups dried corn
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 2 cups whole milk or light cream
  • 150 grams (6 ounces) old Cheddar cheese, grated
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • butter to grease


  1. Put the corn and the water into a pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and set aside for 20 minutes to soak.
  2. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 x 11-inch casserole dish with butter.
  3. Mix the cornmeal, cream and cheddar in a bowl and then add the corn and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Stir the mixture to combine and then transfer to the prepared dish.
  4. Bake the corn for 1 hour, stirring once after 30 minutes of cooking. Serve hot.
