Tennessee Honey Corn Pudding

Storms passed through this area of Tennessee during the night. Tornado sirens screamed until midnight, we were glued to the television and the radio. My lab was restless which made me wonder if something was about to happen - they just know. Finally at 2:47 AM Senator stretched out and slept soundly. He's napping this morning. I just made this corn pudding to take to some guys who are cleaning up some falled trees.

5 large eggs
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons Tennessee Honey (Jack Daniel’s Whiskey)
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/2 cup half/half or milk
4 tablespoons cornstarch
2 (15.25 ounce) cans whole kernel white corn
2 (14.75 ounce) cans cream-style white corn
1 small green cayenne pepper, chopped fine (remove seeds)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
In a large bowl, lightly beat eggs; add half/half and beat. Stir in the remaining ingredients, adding the corn last. Blend well. Pour mixture into a buttered 2 quart casserole dish. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about an hour until golden brown. Allow to rest for 5 - 10 minutes before serving.

I hadn't heard of this until this morning when I saw your blog and mine mentioned in an article in the Knox News. Sounds to die for!

This made me cry. I'm looking up recipes because we our celebrating thanksgiving tomorrow. I lost my grandmoms recipe in the april 2011 tornados. This is a far cry from it but looks good. It was the people that went out of their way that got us to where we are now..thank you.
