  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 whole eggs

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons diced mild or hot canned green chilies, optional
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grate and scrape the corn kernels from the cobs. There should be about cups. Put the corn pulp in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the cream, egg yolks, whole eggs, cheese, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and green chilies. Beat well.
