These are so delicious, I have even made this with pork breakfast sausage meat, do not precook the sausage meat for this as the meat will cook when baked --- make a double batch of these and freeze them, they won't last long! You can also add in a couple teaspoons minced yellow onions or a green onion very finely chopped if desired --- *note* this recipe was developed using original Bisquick baking mix, I cannot promise the same results using a clone mix for this.
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.
My family loves this and I make it on regular rotation, it's so easy to make just mix everything in one large bowl then bake, you may prepare the complete casserole and refrigerate until ready to bake, which makes this a perfect potluck dish! --- I have even made this using frozen french fries that I cut up into small pieces when I had no hash browns on hand and can also be made using cooked cubed potatoes --- cream of chicken soup may be used in place of mushroom soup, you may even throw in some chopped cooked ham or chicken also, I most always increase this by using two cans of soup, 1-1/2 cups sour cream and using half a 5-pound bag of hash browns --- you will love this! :)
A girlfriend told me about the mayo trick when I was first married and I've never roasted a turkey or turkey breast without it since. The skin is crisp and flavorful and the meat is tender, moist and delicious. If you don't use the butter and broth, you will not have enough pan drippings to make gravy and you don't want to do that because this combo makes the best tasting gravy I've ever had. I've also added 1/2 cup of beer or wine to the mixture before and it was also spectacular. With slow roasting it, the meat stays so juicy I've actually had it squirt out when I insert the thermometer! I've never had a better turkey or turkey breast.
This is an awesome low-carb version of loaded baked potatoes, and tastes far better than any version of mock potatoes that I have tried. In fact, this dish is soooo good, you will not believe it! I do not remember where I got this recipe, but it is a fabulous side to any low-carb meal. You will be pleased, I promise! Yum! Yum!
I'm often asked to bring these to potlucks and family get-to-gethers. I always have to make extra, because my kids (even the biggest kid - DH) sneak them before I can get out the door with them. Three of the top U.S. egg producing states are in the midwest. No wonder these little jewels are so popular at those church potlucks in the Midwestern U.S. region.
My sister-in-law served this at a family function and it's been a hit ever since. No Cheese Whiz, just real cheddar cheese. Delicious, and kid-friendly. My now-grown son would request this when he came home from college. This recipe is very adaptable as well - add crushed Ritz crackers or panko crumbs on top during the last 5 minutes of cooking for a crunchy topping. Add bacon bits to the mixture for some extra flavor, or add a couple teaspoons of hot sauce for some heat. I also have used brown rice successfully with this recipe, and frozen broccoli cuts instead of chopped.
This corn dip has been a really big hit for me. Its easy to make and everyone will ask you for the recipe when you take it to parties or have one of you own. I can't ever escape a party without someone stopping me and asking how to make that "awesome" corn dish. Great for a Picnic too!!
These are the BEST mashed potatoes EVER! And they are so user-friendly because you can make them the night before. I never take these anywhere without people begging me for the recipe. Once you make these, you will never want to make them any other way. Also great in twice-baked potatoes. And, if you need really easy, buy pre-cooked mashed potatoes, add from these ingredients, stir, and re-heat in microwave. Tastes almost as good as home-made! My favorite way to cook these are in the crockpot! EDIT: Please note that I have always cooked these in the crockpot and have never baked them; I have gotten new feedback that they taste FAR BETTER if cooked in the crockpot, so this is now my only recommendation for cooking source.
Always look for the smallest Brussels Sprouts you can find. They should be no larger than the tip of your thumb, firm and tightly closed. I hope you enjoy this recipe from Everybody Eats Well in Belgium Cookbook.
We still mourn the closing of Barclay Cafeteria in Charlotte, NC's Southpark Shopping Mall. This was one of their signature dishes and the local newspaper published the recipe in response to many requests when they closed. I make it frequently all year long but especially in summer squash season. It cooks up almost like a custard or souffle and is absolutely delicious.
