  •  Preheat oven to 350℉.

  • Add oil to a large sauté pan and cook the frozen pearl onions over medium-high heat until browning occurs.
  • While the onions are cooking, prepare the oyster mushrooms, garlic, and thyme. Add the oyster mushrooms to the pan and brown them.
  • Then turn the heat down to medium, add the garlic and thyme, and cook for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Then add the cooked kale and frozen corn to the pan and cook until the vegetables are warmed through. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Transfer the mix to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the dried bread pieces to the mix,incorporating thoroughly.
  • Whisk the eggs and heavy cream with salt and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl, then pour over the stuffing, mixing thoroughly until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Spray a 13” x 9” casserole dish with oil and put the pudding mix into it. Let stand for at least 5 minutes.
  • Bake the pudding uncovered for 45 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for about 5 minutes, until the top is browned.
  • Once the pudding is cool enough to handle, cut and serve.
