Daniel Boone B-Day and Colonial Corn Pudding Recipe

Daniel Boone was a frontiersman born in the 1700's He was an American pioneer, explorer, and frontiersman. Boone's frontier exploits made him one of the first folk heroes of the U.S. Boone helped explore and settle part of Kentucky. Boone was captured by the Shawnee warriors who adopted him into their tribe He also served in the Virginia General Assembly during the Revolutionary War He lived the end of his life in Missouri. Boone was a western hero even being featured in a movie One thing that I can remember was those famous coon caps that many give Boone credit for but many historians have said he did not like wearing.

3 cups frozen whole-kernel corn kernels, thawed and divided
3/4 cup evaporated fat-free milk, divided 
2 tablespoons half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
Dash of freshly ground nutmeg
1 large egg
1 large egg white 
6 tablespoons oyster crackers, crushed and divided
3 tablespoons stone-ground cornmeal
Cooking spray
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese 
2 teaspoons butter, melted 
     Preheat oven to 350°.Combine 1 cup corn, 1/4 cup evaporated milk, and half-and-half in a blender; process until smooth. Combine remaining 1/2 cup evaporated milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg, egg, and egg white in a large bowl. Stir in pureed corn mixture, remaining 2 cups corn, 3 tablespoons crackers, and cornmeal. Spoon mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Combine remaining 3 tablespoons crackers and butter in a small bowl; sprinkle cracker mixture evenly over cheese. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
Note: You can substitute store-bought frozen corn in this custardy baked side dish. When it's done, the edges should be a little crusty and the center still slightly soft. If time is an issue, make the dish ahead, refrigerate, and then reheat before serving.
