Your mother was right--eat your vegetables, they're good for you! And if they're tucked beneath a blanket of cheese or swimming in a bath of melted butter, I imagine they're even better than she'd promised.
This recipe will serve about 3 people, I most always double all amounts and cook for 11-12 minutes --- give this a try using fresh cooked corn off the cob or well drained canned corn niblets may also be used :)
A rich and creamy casserole that is quick and easy to put together and to complete the meal add garlic breadsticks and a caesar salad. The original recipe source was Meals.com, however I have modified it to suit our tastes with great results.
For a real treat, when you tire of the corn ON the cob this summer, give my version of Fried Corn a try. It is very easy and takes little time while preparing the rest of the meal. My mom always fixed fried corn this way when I was growing up. She used milk, but the half and half gives it a little richer taste. Trust me, if you try this, you will want to have it again ; )
This corn is so rich, almost like an alfredo. It's too high in fat for me to make often but is a really nice side dish for the holidays or other special dinner. I got the recipe from my stepmother who is an amazing cook. Based on the reviews here, I'd suggest you start with only one teaspoon of salt and add more if needed.
This is based on a recipe from Second Helpings from Union Square Cookbook. Much to the dismay of family and friends, I could never learn to appreciate asparagus. It always reminded me somehow of eating grass. But I tried this recipe and finally found a way to love asparagus. This is incredibly simple, but the combination is superb. Spending the extra to get true fleur de sel is really worth it for this dish.
This dish has been served every year at my holiday dinner table, I double the recipe and sometimes even triple depending on how many people I have at my table, there is never anything left and I always receive rave reviews all around! --- two small cloves fresh minced garlic may also be added in and sauteed for one minute in butter before adding in the flour--- you will also find this recipe on my food blog http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/09/15/blue-cheese-broccoli-bake/
Another one of my Favorites, I found this on the internet a couple years ago on another site and I have stayed pretty true to the recipe. I have turned on quite a few to Brussels Sprouts in the proccess also.
