Sagaponack Corn Pudding






Ina Garten has a home in Bridgehampton. Sagaponack has great little farm stands which Ina is very fond of.

Recipe is from Ina's cookbook Barefoot Contessa Family Style, which is now in the hands of one of friends.


Ingredients:

1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter 
5 cups fresh corn kernels cut off the cob (6 to 8 ears) 
1 cup chopped yellow onion (1 onion) 
4 extra-large eggs 
1 cup milk 
1 cup half-and-half 
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal 
1 cup ricotta cheese 
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves 
1 tablespoon sugar 
1 tablespoon kosher salt 
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
3/4 cup (6 ounces) grated extra-sharp Cheddar, plus extra to sprinkle on top 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease the inside of an 8- to 10-cup baking dish. 

Melt the butter in a very large sauté pan and sauté the corn and onion over medium-high heat for 4 minutes. Cool slightly. 

Whisk together the eggs, milk, and half-and-half in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in the cornmeal and then the ricotta. Add the basil, sugar, salt, and pepper. Add the cooked corn mixture and grated Cheddar, and then pour into the baking dish. Sprinkle the top with more grated Cheddar. 

Place the dish in a larger pan and fill the pan halfway up the sides of the dish with hot tap water. Bake the pudding for 40 to 45 minutes, until the top begins to brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm.

  1. Wow, this sounds soooo good. I don't eat many cooked veggies, but corn is one of my favorites. Never would have thought to use ricotta cheese in a veggie recipe, but this looks great. I loved watching Ina's show on tv. Thanks for sharing this one. On my try list.

  2. I've borrowed that book from the library and copied quite a few recipes from it. I do love ricotta....must be the Italian in me. :) Ricotta and cheddar? How can you go wrong with that combo?

    I wondered where in the Hamptons Ina lived....now I know! She's got quite the place for sure-ohhhhh those kitchens of hers (especially the one IN THE BARN!)-I dream of something like that. I enjoy catching her show on Food Network when I can. I love listening to her talk-and she makes everything look so easy too.

      I've made quite a few corn dishes but I liked the idea of the ricotta plus the recipe is from the area I live.

    1. Sue- Ina lives in my area. She started with a store in East Hampton first and then she did cookbooks and from there she did TV. The store closed many years ago but it was fun going in.

      I thank you and the girls for hosting Anything Goes.

      Sorry the picture was SO bad in this one. The recipe is delicious!
