Fresh Corn and Wild Rice

Okay I've been a little MIA for a few weeks... or months. Things are not really settling down, but I'm trying to get back to the things I did before baby #2. Yes, yes I know, I sound wimpy because there are moms out there who have 3, 4, even 5 kids and have an easier time getting back on their feet. But, I have a bit of a special circumstance.....

Here's my thanksgiving side dish, from none other than the PIONEER WOMAN. I love this lady, and I made this corn side dish last year and it was a HUGE hit, I LOVED it, and can't wait to make it again this year.... maybe, if I get around to it. :)

Here it is:

Fresh Corn and Wild Rice 

Ingredients

Directions


  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. 2
    Cook wild rice in chicken broth until almost done. Rice should still have a firm (but not crunchy) bite. Drain rice and allow to cool.

  3. 3
    Scrape corn kernels into a large mixing bowl. Add in cream, butter, beaten eggs, salt, and cayenne pepper. Stir together.

  4. 4
    Add in cooled wild rice, stirring gently. Splash in milk so that mixture is stirrable, but not overly juicy.

  5. 5
    Taste for seasonings, adding more salt or cayenne pepper if needed.

  6. 6
    Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until just turning golden brown on top and mixture is somewhat set.

Kara...don't think only having "two" makes it any easier than having 3,4 or 5! I had a hard time with the jump from 1 to 2 also...I felt like I disappeared off the earth for a whole year! I'm amazed at how much you are doing!

I love PW too! Wish she would come cook my Thanksgiving dinner for me this year!
