Frequently asked questions about Corn Pudding Casserole

  1. What does non-GMO stand for? Non-genetically modified
  2. Do I have to use organic ingredients? Absolutely not, that is just my personal preference for components used in my recipes.
  3. What does all-natural mean? It means that the ingredient listed does not contain artificial ingredients or preservatives, and the ingredients are only minimally processed.
  4. Are jalapenos going to make the recipe taste too hot? Not of you remove the membranes and seeds before chopping them.
  5. What can I substitute for the jalapenos? Green bell peppers work well in this recipe.
  6. What is a sweet onion?  Vidalia and the Walla Walla onions are the most common type of sweet onions. These onions lack the sharp, astringent taste of other common onions. 
  7. What corn muffin mix is the best to use in this recipe? I prefer to use the Jiffy corn muffin mix.
  8. Can I use Creole seasoning in place of Cajun seasoning? The taste will be a little different, but if you prefer it, I see no reason why not.
  9. Can this recipe be made ahead of time? Just let cool, cover tightly with foil, and place in the refrigerator until the next day. Reheat on low in the oven before serving.
