This Thanksgiving our family will be getting together as usual at Amanda and Joshua's. This will be a special celebration because they will be moving to Massachusetts in January. Don't ask me if I can stand that! Each person brings a dish and this year I hope to take this!
Individual Corn Puddings with Field Greens

Makes: 8 servings
Prep: 15 minutes Start to Finish: 35 minutes

Ingredients
Cooking spray, for ramekins
1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 boxes (10 oz. each) frozen corn kernels, thawed
2 tablespoons Splenda
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1-3/4 cups fat free half-and-half
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1/4 heaping teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, plus additional whole chives for garnish
8 cups assorted salad greens, rinsed and dried
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray eight 4-ounce ramekins or custard cups.
2. Whisk together vinegar and mustard in a bowl; salt and pepper to taste. Slowly add oil in a stream, whisking until vinaigrette is emulsified.
3. In a food processor, pulse together corn, sugar, the 1 teaspoon coarse salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until corn is coarsely chopped; transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in half-and-half, eggs, egg yolks, nutmeg, flour, and chopped chives. Pour about 1/2 cup mixture into each ramekin. Bake on a large baking sheet in middle of oven until just set, about 20 minutes. Puddings will continue to set as they cool.
4. Toss salad greens with just enough vinaigrette to coat. Serve pudding warm or at room temperature, garnished with whole chives, with salad on the side. Makes 8 servings.
