I like to use a rubber spatula and fold in everything until it’s well incorporated.

Once the corn pudding is mixed together, pour it into an 8×8″ baking dish or a 10″ cast iron pan.

I like both options here. If you like the crusty edges, a cast iron pan might be the better choice.

3. Cook

Place the corn pudding into your smoker at 350°F for 40 minutes.

The pudding will rise some and firm up, and the center should still be soft but hold together.

You can check the doneness by sticking a toothpick in the center. The toothpick should come out with a little filling stuck to it, but if the whole thing is covered, you may need to cook for a bit longer.

If you want the dish extra cheesy, you can opt to put a little more shredded cheese on top of the corn pudding near the end and smoke for an additional 5 minutes to get it melted. It will form a nice crust.

You can store the corn pudding for up to 5 days.

To reheat, microwave or place in a preheated oven at 350°F until it is warmed through.
