Baked Corn Pudding

I've always been content to live in the Midwest. It seems healthy and friendly here, and a comfortable place to be. I was one of those lucky city kids who had grandparents with a farm, and memories of visits there are fond. There were speckled brown eggs to gather from beneath warm feathered hens, a gentle spotted cow to milk, a vegetable garden to tend, and always a litter of newborn kittens to watch over, eagerly hoping each day that their tiny eyes would open.
Tomatoes and corn tasted better at the farm than they did anyplace else-especially the corn! A real favorite was Grandmother's Baked Corn Pudding. She seasoned the pudding simply, with salt and pepper, sometimes adding a sprinkling of nutmeg. I've added my own flavor touches of cumin and thyme. The one-step method is easy, but take care not to process the mixture too finely-it should be coarse and chunky. Sue Spitzer

3 tablespoons cracker crumbs (any kind)
3 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
3/4 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
2 large eggs
1/4 cup unbleached white flour

1/2 teaspoon each,salt and dried thyme
