Back for Duty-Corn and cheese custard



Welcome back to CuisineNie!!!


I have decided to cook again.
It is good therapy for me, and besides you can only have cold cereal for so long before you want to die of cheerio overdose.
Since yesterday was Sunday, I didn't cook.
It is the day we get to have my Dad's smorgasbord of goodness at Family dinner.
Instead I thought I'd post about another very good dish.
I found this on the Country Living site.
With corn a plenty around these parts, this would be a good 'welcome to fall' idea.
It is called
Corn and cheese custard.
If you like Gouda cheese, you will most certainly fall in love.
Enjoy-
And don't burn yourself!






1 1/4 cup(s)



heavy cream
1 cup(s) milk
1 3/4 cup(s) grated smoked Gouda
1 cup(s) fresh bread crumbs
3 egg yolks
1 cup(s) (about 2 ears) fresh corn kernels
1 teaspoon(s) salt
1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Butter a 10 1/2- by 7-inch baking dish; set aside.
  2. Heat cream and milk over medium heat until simmering. Reduce heat to low and stir in 1 1/2 cups cheese until melted. Add bread crumbs. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes. Whisk in egg yolks, 3/4 cup corn, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour custard into prepared dish and top with remaining 1/4 cup corn and 1/4 cup cheese. Place dish in a large roasting pan, pour 1 inch hot water into pan, and bake until custard sets, about 1 1/4 hours.

By the way, if you want a 'CuisineNie' button for your site, help yourself !

Looks great! I will have to veganize it which I think I can easily do. I was just working on my meal plan for the week. Good timing.

The Muhlesteins said...

Yummy! Thanks NieNie! I'm new to this type of eating and I'm so needing some yummy recipes to um... "encourage" my hubby. He loved the Black Bean Chili last week!

Krista said...

so glad to have this back...i love all your recipes (had the black bean chili for dinner last night, in fact, and packed leftovers for lunch!) My husband and I are not vegetarians, but I try to only eat meat a couple of times a week because I feel a lot better when I go without (hard to do with a meat n' potatoes hubby). He LOVES your recipes, so I'm always making them! God bless you!

kamille said...

ooh yummy! i will have to give this a try. i love you nie :)

Jessica said...

This looks so tasty! I've been cooking my way through CuisineNie and making meals inspired by ones you made on your blog as well. Everything is so yummy! Thank you!

Taylor K said...

Mmmm. This looks delicious! I wish it felt like fall here. :( I am in Phoenix, AZ. B-L-E-C-H. I know you can relate. :)

Have a wonderful day

Sandy Toes said...

Heavy Cream...yikes...I bet this is good!
I am going to the Country Living Fair this coming week. They have demonstrations on cooking...it's my favorite part of the fair!

I just wish I could bring one of those "cooks" home with me~

WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!

Cazra said...

I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I just found it a few weeks ago, but you have inspired me to do sooooo many things already. Thanks!
About the recipe.....it looks delicious and I can't wait to try it. I have one question, even at the risk of sounding incredibly dumb.......How do you make fresh bread crumbs? I see this ingredient in so many recipes and I don't know how to take fresh bread and make crumbs with it. Please help!

maria said...

YAY! You just made my day. This looks scrumptious!

Nate & Erin Bigler said...

NieNie I'm so glad to see you're back in the kitchen! My children especially love your desserts and muffins. Can't wait to see what you cook up next.

Natalie said...

That looks excellent! I cannot wait to try it!!!!!

The Unlikely Homeschooler said...

HOORAY!! Cooking has always been a wonderful therapy for me also! Glad you are back in the kitchen, can't wait to try out some of your upcoming recipes!

Erin said...

I do love smoked Gouda so I will have to give this a try. I'm so excited to read your recipes again. I'm trying to incorporate more and more meatless dishes into our evening meals. I'm always more likely to try a recipe when somebody else has been a guinea pig first :)

Staci said...

The kids and I are on our way to pick up needed ingredients at Fry's as we speak :)

Lisita said...

I'm thrilled you are posting here again. I admire you and think you are absolutely wonderful and fabulous! Thanks for all the inspiring blog posts on both your blogs!

Pink Slippers said...

Being that my wonderful husband does all the cooking since I started home schooling (cause he is great like that) I will pass this one on to my cute chef. THANKS!
Wendy
Mommy to 7. 9 and under.

Damaris said...

I'm a food blogger myself. I'm excited about this new/ old blog. I need more meatless recipes.

hand.pecked said...

So thrilled to have you back. You are such an inspiration to all.

Noodle said...

Doesn't the fall weather make you want to bake, roast, and eat hearty foods? It does me, and I know just where to look for great recipes. Thanks, Nie!

Alejandra said...

this sounds so good! It reminds me of a dish I ate growing up in Chile called "pastel de cochlo" or "corn pie", very hearty and rich.
I love Gouda, for chileans gouda is like cheddar for americans, I love it!!

Rachael said...

I am SO happy that you are back! I love your recipes (the tuna waldorf salad is a huge favorite around here, and my kids routinely request it), but I am just so glad that you're feeling up to cooking again, since it seems like your time in the kitchen was a joyous part of your pre-crash life. As a longtime reader, I'm grateful that you've continued to allow us a window on your inspiring life--reading your entries over the last 3 years has really influenced my parenting.

And if you're on the hunt for new vegetarian goodies, I just posted my latest favorite on my cooking blog: http://icooktorelax.blogspot.com/2009/09/ratatouille.html

Carrie said...

Mmm looks delish. I'm glad you're back. I need help convincing my husband that dinner need not include meat. You are the cutest, sweetest, most inspiring person I've ever not known. I'd do just about anything to live next door to your cute family.

Emily Ruth said...

I'm so glad you are posting here again. Lucky us! And I wanted you to know, you inspired me to make your spicy chocolate cake for my birthday---the one you made for cinco de mayo party/my birthday; ) last year? The awesomeness...

beanstocks said...

Yea for Nie's cuisine! So glad you're back. We have tried many of your recipes, and have just loved them. Thanks for posting again. I know we've never met, but I just adore you!

CB said...

Ohh, so fun to read your recipes! And I have to say its fun to see your house pictures on your blog too. I pray for you often.

aurora said...

Natalie said...

LOVE the chef hats on you & Christian!!!

Flicka said...

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

Wow, so there is another thing we have in common! I had no idea you were a non-meat eater-that's awesome! (and you know, healthy and all). I can't wait to see more of your recipies. I have been primarily veggie since I was a teen in boarding school. Now as for all those males I live with--ugh...the hubby & the teenager like their meat, but they get it only when we go out--I don't buy it. And I'm raising the little one meatless. Looking forward to learning more things to make!

Brian and Staci said...

Ohhh!!! YOU'RE BACK!!!!!!! YIPPEEEE!!! I can't wait to give this a try =) I make Mr. Nielson's waffles AT LEAST once a week!!!! Love you Nie....even though your Cougars did beat up on My Sooners =) Gotta love college football!!!!!

JoanneK said...

Yum yum yummy!!!! Glad you're back!

Kristen Kay said...

This sounds delicious! We also have plenty of corn, so I will try this sometime this week! SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK! Love you!

Family of 4.... said...

Yummy side dish for us. Thanks for posting it. Do you have any recipes for whole grain muffins for kids? Trying to give my girls (5 & 7) some new breakfast options in the am.

Mrs. Schmalison said...

I am so glad your back, I love your yummy recipes and I cant wait to try this one!

Jillian said...

Don't you just love Country Living? I am addicted and all of my friends laugh at me because I'm only 25. I'm an old soul, I guess.

So glad you are back and blogging regularly. It makes my day to read your blog every time I see a new post.

Caroline said...

That looks beautiful. Big ups to NIE!

Jennifer (Savor) said...

Country Living is great! Seriously did you & Mr. Nielson sneak off and eat it all in one sitting or did the kids get any?

LeaAnne said...

Yahooo you are back posting from the kitchen! Can't wait to try this one out with all my corn LOVERS!! Big Hugs from Oregon!

Tiffany said...

So glad you are back at it! My kids love corn casserole, I can't wait to try this one.

KM said...

Yum.

I. heart. anything. with. heavy. cream.

And gouda cheese.

But how do you say it correctly? Is it "goooo-da" or "gou-dah"? I just never know, but alas, it is a beautifully tasting cheese.

Happy Cooking.

JENNIE! said...

oohh yeah, corn, cream, and gooda, what more could a girl ask for?

Kelly said...

Nie! You are an inspiration to so many! If you're ever having a bad day, just remember that you're thought of, loved, prayed for, and admired by thousands. I don't even know you, but you've made a difference in my life! Thank you!! I love how you write and how you dress. You have such a classy & unique way of viewing the world. Goodness just radiates from you. Thanks for being who you are. I'm sure you're putting tons of smiles on God's face. :)

Chow and Chatter said...

Rosemarie said...

Awesome recipe - I think I may make this for Thanksgiving. I know that's a long way off - but I have to gather all the ingredients, you know. :)

NieNie said...

i am so glad you guys are happy to have me back!!

Angie said...

I am SO glad that you are back to posting your yummy recipes! ~~Hugs~~

laura said...

As a more recent NieNie reader, I didn't even know you wrote about food, too! Hooray!

Now, a silly question, because I don't use corn all that much.... is this raw corn off the cob, or do I cook it first?

PS Gouda is one of my favorite things ever. Thanks for another excuse to eat cheese. :-)

Nora said...

Oh, that looks perfect.

rookie cookie said...

Welcome back to the food blogging world. We are a happy one!

Robyn :) said...

Oh oh oh!!!!! I just love healthy cooking blogs!!! Glad you have one!!

mascanlon said...

Welcome back Nie. I have always found cooking and crafting as a way to relax and although I have never faced the challenges you have this year I know it will bring you enjoyment. Thank you, you and your family is such an inspiration and I pray for you often.

queenmari said...

this looks so good. i think i will make it to go with next weekends "sunday dinner".

i cook for my husband the meat eater (as in must have meat with every meal) and for myself the vegetarian. it works well for us.

i am so glad you are back cooking, and i look forward to your delicious vegetarian dishes.

blessings, mari

likeschocolate said...

Thanks I think I might die after eating that. It looks like a recipe from heaven. I want you to know you gave me the courage to visit a friend. I didn't want her to see me because I have put on some weight. Then after seeing how you had the courage to show the world the pictures of you I thought you know God loves me with or without a few pounds and friends are just more important than being caught in the worldlyness of appearances. You are truely a beautiful person Nie inside and out. When I read your blog it is like being a little closer to heaven because you are such a good example of what we should all be like. Thank you! Hugs and Kisses from a girl in Georgia

Crystal said...

It looks incredible! I will make it for my baby's birthday cookout Saturday. Thank you for the idea!!

I love you, by the way!

Best Wishes, Marie said...

stephanie

your story is amazing. happy to meet you on your first day back cooking. you helped me with a much needed attitude adjustment. marie

Beth said...

I am excited as well! We are fellow vegetarians too! I had no idea you guys were when we were in your ward. Can't wait to try some new recipes. :)

Natalie said...

I am so NOT a corn in anything but it's natural state type of person (creamed corn BLECH), but you said gouda and I was sold. This sounds delicious.

Lyndsay said...

Oh goodness! If Maya wasn't so terribly bothered when I eat dairy, I would make this tomorrow. I'll save it for a "weaned" day. :)

The G Fam said...

Just wondering Nie, where did you get the charming blue pie dish and the lovely red plates? The colors just scream "eat me!!"

Mary Anne said...

Thank you, from the bottom of my stomach, for these excellent recipes. Sometimes I get in a rut as a (mostly, except seafood) vegetarian with three hungry mouths to feed.

denise lynnette said...

mmmm...

will make tomorrow.
thank you!

jenn said...

Yippee!! So glad you're back!!

Amy said...

Stephanie,
Thank you so much for sharing your life with the world before and after the accident. You have inspired me to be a better wife and one day (hopefully soon!)to be a better mother. I know we have never met but I wanted to let you know that you have made a positive impact on my life through your writing. Your have given me so much inspiration, motivation and courage, there's not even enough room here to tell you how grateful I am I found your blog! I am so happy that you are doing well and that you chose to continue your blog. Oh, and your recipes look awesome! Hugs from Savannah, GA

Bloom said...

so delighted to have you back at CuisineNie...I'm in desperate need of tried and true vegetarian recipes. thanks for sharing yours.

catebrook said...

Hi Stephanie, I'm so glad you are back to blogland, but let me tell you that NONE of your posts let me know how *really* well you are doing until I read your post yesterday about you cleaning your carpets. No one I know ever wants to do that job--You MUST be well! ;)

anyway, I will be trying this recipe tonight but I don't have enough gouda, so I will be using some Monterey Jack, and I'm using light cream. I know, totally wrong, but I'm trying it!

tricia said...

welcome back! It looks yummy!

You had me at 'heavy cream'! So glad to have you back in our blog world. Good luck to your father today. If I lived in Provo I'm thinking he'd have my vote!

As Told By Molly said...

It seems like I am always my happiest when I'm in my own element, and the kitchen is definitely yours. Welcome back.

Sending lots of love and sunshine from Mesa, Molly

Veronica said...

You don't know me, I've been following your other blog since your accident. But I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your wonderful and inspirational posts. Your faith and outlook on life truly motivate me to be a better person.

And as for this cooking blog, I am so excited! I am always looking for vegetarian recipes!!!

the Lola Letters said...

I have to admit, I had no idea what Gouda even was... yeah, I'm the product of a mother that did NOT like to cook... so I learned very little growing up. But, I actually TASTED Smoked Gouda at a party last night, and it is divine! I am SO making this custard. Thanks!

Rachel said...

Your an inspiration! I love to cook really good food too (with lots-o-meat) and have my mother-in-law, and both sis-in-laws as wonderful outlets and recipe sharers! Visit my blog if you can, just posted some photo's of my wonderful salsa:)

You are amazing (obviously). I'm so inspired by you and so glad you are back to your cooking blog. You once said you would post what you feed your kids in the car for road trips. If it's not to much, I'd love to know what that is! Thanks for your inspiration. I adore you. You are lovely.

Hilda May said...

Great recipe.....just to let you know I'm voting for your dad.....oh dear I can't I'm English.....but if I could I would....good luck to him from us......looking forward to more recipes.....

I am so glad I am able to leave you a comment. I have been reading your blog since your crash and you are truly an inspiration to me. Thank you for sharing your life. I love your recipes, too. Blessings, S

stephanie joy said...

mmmmm... i have almost this exact same recipe except it's called 'corn cheese bake'. it is a favorite side dish in our family and can be found in the infamous (around these parts anyways) 'mennonite treasury cookbook'. it is fabulous and yummy! the only difference is the kind of cheese (usually cheddar) and we add in chopped red pepper. so yummy and easy!
glad to hear you're cooking again! i bet you look adorable in the kitchen. got any new sweet aprons from anthro? :)

nano*ink said...

Mark Bittman has a yummy fresh corn recipe with avocado and tomatoes - goin' to try it soon...

I will run a sample to you when I try it. : )

Rebecca said...

This recipe sounds delicious! Can't wait to try it. I don't know you but I think of you and your family often and pray for you often,too. :) A few months ago I read your blog (I always wondered what NieNie was when I saw other people's buttons on their blog and when I read your story I cried and cried for you) Thank you for being such an inspiration. And I will continue to pray for you. :)

Heather said...

I made this last night and loved the results. Instead of smoked gouda, I used sharp cheddar, because it is what I had on hand. Also, for the breadcrumbs, I used some rosemary bread that I had made. It came out perfectly, and I will definitely be adding this to my "regular" recipes. Thanks for sharing this.

Ann said...

I love that you are back to cooking and taking care of the family that you love so much.
I'm not sure where to begin to tell you in all the ways you have impacted my life.
Your blog BC gave a voice to all the things that were true in my own life, having a husband I love and being a young mom and finding the joy in all the little moments raising kids.
And your life AC, is a story that is still unfloding, I know, and one that, I'm sure still has it's unexpected bumps, but I have loved watching this miracle, that is your life. I am inspired to say the least.
Just know that somewhere in the white mnts of AZ there is someone cheering you and your family on!

megan... said...

I love reading about you making bread, and I have been making whole wheat bread for me and my hubby since the start of the year ( my one and only successful resolution!) I'd love it if you'd post your recipe so I could try that one too!

Melanie Anne said...

Glad to see you back to posting on CuisineNie. I made your yummy Granola Pear muffins and posted about it on my recipe blog I do with my sisters. Sisterscafe.blogspot.com
This corn recipe sounds great!

Meet Pam said...

Oh Nie I am so happy you are cooking again. I am a vegetarian myself and your great ideas help my lack of creativity in the kitchen. I'm so happy not to have to eat a black bean burger again tonight. You are the best!

Katie said...

Love you, Nie. Your pumpkin chocolate chip and banana chocolate chip breads ROCK my house! Glad you're here, and I mean that on many levels.
You're incredible...
Katie

Diana's said...

This sounds yummy !
It would be good with almost any cheese I would think.

A great comfort food dish ;)

I am always thinking of ways to use veggies, fruits... in my organic gardens too.
Thanks for finding and posting the recipe.

I am going to go and hit the "follow" button here as soon as I finish my comment.

I found you through the SavorTheThyme blog (which I found on Twitter)
I find so many great folks both there and here on BlogSpot.

Yum--I will definitely make this. Thanks, Stephanie! Good to have CuisineNie back!

Marie {Make and Takes} said...

Wahoo! You're back. I can't wait to see more deliciousness! And that custard looks divine!

Aly said...

I am new to your blog. I just made this recipe tonight and it was amazing! Husband loved it ;-) Thanks for sharing it.

That Fresh Feeling said...

thanks! made this recipe this weekend. and it was delicious!

Emz said...

Made this ------- LOVED this.
Thank you!!!!

C.T. said...

Uhmm...I read Gouda? Cheese? (i'm Dutch, that's why) I love you already! 10.39 and I'll just skipp all the foodies. Let me hang around here a bit longer, please.

Bryn said...

Just made this yesterday. Did anyone else have a little trouble getting the Gouda to melt? Half of my family liked it, the other half didn't. Very rich, of course you can tell that by the ingredients. Doesn't use that much corn. Very homey, Amish, dish!

Anonymous said...

It is certainly interesting for me to read the post. Thank you for it. I like such themes and everything that is connected to them. I would like to read a bit more soon.

Kei said...

OK, I just have to tell you how much I loved this dish. I just made it the other day and brought it to work for our Thanksgiving potluck and it was gone in about 5 minutes! I felt bad because so many people didn't get to try it. I wished I had doubled the recipe. Needless to say, this will be a recipe that I will make every Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for posting!

Jill said...

This recipe looks yummy! Gotta try this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

Lydia said...

Oh my, comfort food smorgasbord! yum yum!

Shana said...

I made this yummy recipe of yours over Thanksgiving. Everyone LOVED it including me. Thanks Nie!!
