Ingredients:

3 ears corn on the cob, shucked
3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely diced
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup yellow cornmeal, plus 1 Tbsp. for dusting
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 eggs, separated
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
freshly grated nutmeg
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
butter

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Rub ears of corn with oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill over medium-high heat 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.

When cool enough to handle, carefully cut kernels off cobs with a sharp knife.

Butter a 1-quart casserole or soufflé dish and dust with 1 tablespoon cornmeal.

In a large saucepan, heat milk with some salt and pepper to just boiling.

Gradually whisk in 1 cup of cornmeal.

Cook over heat for 2 minutes, whisking constantly.

Pour into a large mixing bowl and set aside to cool off a little.

Meanwhile, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

When cornmeal mixture has cooled off some, stir in mustard, corn kernels, jalapeno and egg yolks.

Stir in cheese and nutmeg.

Fold egg whites into corn mixture and turn into buttered dish.

Bake 45 minutes until puffed and golden.
