If you’re wondering what to serve with your corn pudding, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for corn pudding.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes to serve with corn pudding include roasted turkey, sriracha chicken wings, BBQ ribs, beef stew, or a three-bean chili. For vegetable sides, try roasted green beans, kale caesar salad, southern-style coleslaw, or succotash. Diner-style patty melts are also delicious.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Herb roasted turkey
If corn pudding doesn’t have you instantly thinking of Thanksgiving, it will when you pair it with a roast turkey.
I don’t think you can get much more classic.
This succulent turkey is slathered with herby butter, then roasted until the skin is crisp and crunchy.
Psst… if you don’t want to cook a turkey, a roast chicken will work perfectly too.
When it comes to tag teams, there is no greater team than corn pudding and a rich, saucy stew.
The soft, creamy pudding provides the perfect backdrop for this hearty beef stew. The pudding will soak up all the flavors and become simply irresistible.
You can make this stew in a slow cooker, so you can set it and forget it.
Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker in the morning, and let it work its magic.
Double corn? No problem!
Succotash is a quintessential Southern side dish that you can pair with pretty much anything, including corn pudding.
It’s made from a mix of lima beans, corn, and bacon. The combination of sweet corn and smokey bacon is absolutely delicious.
And the colorful vegetables will brighten your plate.
Baked honey sriracha chicken wings
Now we have the classics out of the way, we can be more inventive.
These wings are marinated in a sweet-but-spicy sauce, which will complement the creamy sweetness of the corn casserole perfectly.
And I love the fact that they’re baked, it makes things so much easier. No more slaving over a frying pan filled with oil.

Psst… no sriracha? check out my recommendations for the best substitute.
Picture this: you’re sitting in your garden on a warm summer evening with a glass of cold beer next to you.
Then someone presents you with a freshly baked corn pudding, topped with a sprinkle of green onions and served alongside a creamy southern-style coleslaw (and some ribs).
What more could you want?
I love the sweet pickle relish mixed into this southern coleslaw.
I’m not a vegetarian, but this vegan three-bean chili recipe is fast becoming my favorite chili recipe.
And it’s wonderful served with a big slice of corn pudding on the side.
You can use the pudding to mop up all the tasty sauce, so not a drop of flavor is left behind.
Try this savory three-bean chili – it only takes 30 minutes to cook so is great for a busy weeknight meal.
Plus, the leftovers make an excellent lunch.
One of the best things about summer is BBQ’s.
But with this air fryer ribs recipe, you can have BBQ ribs all year round!
Add a simple dry rub of paprika, cumin, and garlic powder to the ribs, then cook them until they’re tender and juicy.
Finally, slather them with a sticky BBQ sauce and enjoy them alongside your corn pudding.
Izzy’s Cooking makes her own BBQ sauce but can cheat by using a store-bought BBQ sauce instead.
I won’t tell anybody.
Apple walnut cranberry salad
If you’re nearing the festive season, dinners can become pretty indulgent.
But sometimes you want that festive feel without all the calories.
And that’s where this salad comes in.
The sweetness of the apples, the crunch of the walnuts, and the tartness of the cranberries come together to create something truly delicious.
The textures work perfectly with the soft and fluffy corn pudding. This recipe is my go-to.
Kale Caesar salad
This is a delicious twist on the traditional caesar salad.
The earthy, slightly bitter kale is tossed in a tangy lime and greek yogurt dressing, which will cut through the richness of your corn casserole beautifully.
Add in some croutons and parmesan cheese, and you have a dish that will please everyone at your potluck.
Give this Caesar salad a try.
Diner-style patty melts
Fancy a full-on comfort meal?
These diner-style melts are great for indulging. I think of them as a mix between grilled cheese and a fast-food burger.
The caramelized onions take things to the next level and help bring out the sweetness of the corn pudding.

Roasted green beans
Sometimes simple is best.
And you can’t get much more simple than green beans. Roasting the green beans gives them a nice crunchy texture.
And the salty parmesan sprinkled over these garlic green beans brings a savory element to the dish.
Psst… I also love these bacon-wrapped green bean bundles.
