In The Beginning – Corn Casserole ala Pudding

A new blog deserves a new recipe. This one was born out of desperation and necessity due to an epic cooking fail. Did you know, you CAN’T boil sweet potatoes for three hours? Well, silly, you can’t and expect them to become delicious Sweet Dreams Sweet Potato Casserole.

The despicable error of forgetting to start a timer had me frantically trying to think of another side dish to prepare for Christmas Dinner at Mom (Doctor of Mad Science)  and Dad’s house. It had to be something from ingredients from my pantry and fridge because HELLO! It was 11:00 p.m. Christmas Eve!! I knew I had corn and remembered seeing a corn casserole posted somewhere recently.

After a good night’s sleep and a house newly destroyed in the aftermath of the Jolly Old Elf’s annual trip to my house, I got to work. Four different recipes were found and printed because a Mad Scientist can’t exclusively use someone else’s recipe and I got to work. The  result was, well Delicious!

Corn Casserole ala Pudding


Corn Casserole ala Pudding


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

  • 2 cans whole kernel corn, drained (15 1/4 oz)
  • 2 cans cream style corn (15 1/4 oz)
  • 5 eggs beaten
  • 1 rib celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup yellow, orange or green bell pepper (you choose preference or on hand)
  • 1 package corn muffin mix (not a snob here, use what you can find)
  • 1 cup cottage cheese (Ricotta cheese would be good here too!)
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

In a large bowl stir together all ingredients (1/2 of the cheese). Pour into greased 9 X 13 cake pan/casserole dish and bake   45 -60 minutes or until center is set and inserted knife comes out clean. Remove from oven, top with remaining cheese and let the heat from the dish melt the cheese until it’s ooey gooey!



You can thank me after you fix this and decide for yourself that it’s delicious and truly worthy of the first ever recipe on Cooking-The Mad Scientist Way.

Your Welcome 🙂

I decided I need to separate my literary writing with my recipe creations and sharing so Cooking- The Mad Scientist Way was born. You will see my old cooking posts from the other blog transferred to this blog and you will be gifted with new posts here! I already have ideas “cooking”!




From my fabulous kitchen. The one in my dreams.


Stick around, enjoy and get cooking!
