Spicy Cheddar Cornbread Pudding

A little spicy, a little sweet and a lot delicious, this Spicy Cheddar Cornbread Pudding is our most-requested side dish ever. We use two kinds of cheeses — extra-sharp cheddar and pepper jack — to give it loads of flavor. Make it with fresh summer corn when it’s in season, but it’s just as good with frozen corn the rest of the year.

Everything has a National Day. There’s a National Peanut Butter Day (March 1). A National Pickle Day (November 14).

And last week, July 30, was National Cheesecake Day. read more…
