It wouldn't be the holidays without them! This casserole side dish can be made with just a hint of sweet or decadent enough for dessert! The pecan streusel caramelizes on top to make a pecan-pie like topping. This is one of those family recipes that you may need to play with the ingredient amounts a bit.
This is a great twist on traditional fried or smothered cabbage - taken from the Tony's Seafood of Louisiana website (who are quoting a Mulate's recipe). How can we go wrong? YUMMO!! My DH brought me a tee back from Mulate's when he was down helping recovery efforts after Hurricane Katrina - needless to say we love the region and the food - and now I can say I "perk" up a bit when I see Mulate's anywhere. I can't wait to get down there myself just to sample my way around the region! How DO I get one of those traveling shows myself? ;)--
I am confident you, your family and your guests will find this to be one of the best tasting and the the most easily prepared vegetable side-dishes to be found. It is an old Corn Souffle recipe that I bumped up a little by turning it into a Creole-Cajun type casserole. I started taking this to a monthly covered-dish dinner and there was never any left-overs to bring home, so I started doubling the recipe and I got the same results -- still no left-overs. And it is really better after it has been around for a couple of days. Guess I will have to start tripling the recipe, making one large casserole for the dinner and a smaller one to leave at home. I am under strict orders from the dinner group that I am to bring nothing but this dish. This suits me fine for it is so easy to prepare and I get a big kick from seeing my empty dish after the dinner.
This is simply a recipe I concocted many years ago while my brother and I were living together and our kitchen cabinets contained only the bare essentials! Surprisingly, my finicky brother loved them, and so they are named accordingly.
This came from a ladies group that met once a month where everyone brought their favorite dish and worked the afternoon on fund raising projects. It has since become a favorite dish for Sunday dinners, and potlucks at our house.
I've searched through the recipe collection and did not find anything matching this recipe. It is my daughter's favorite veggie casserole dish and is always requested for her birthday dinner and any other time she plans on coming over for dinner.
You might find yourself purchasing zucchini in your grocery store all year around just to make these, they are *that* good! --- you will be lucky if these even make it to the table lol! you may also add in some canned corn niblets or some cooked rice, although garlic powder may be used I strongly suggest to use fresh minced garlic, this recipe is very forgiving so don't worry about the the exact measurments--- these are delicious served with sour cream :) also take a look at my recipe#138173
I had to come up with this quick. Every Thanksgiving my mom serves Green Giant Niblets corn in butter sauce and I promised I would pick it up for her and bring it on Thanksgiving day. When I went to the store, they were sold out! I made this recipe and brought it already prepared to Thanksgiving dinner. Nobody was the wiser! I saved some money too, because I used store brand corn! This recipe makes a lot...you may want to half it.
