Jessica loves anything creamy and cheesy.

While corn wasn’t a staple on her Thanksgiving table growing up, she thought she’d whip up a creamed corn soufflé this year.

Jessica added ham to her dish, but you can also make a vegetarian version.

This segment aired on California Cooking with Jessica Holmes, Episode 134.
