Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday (right behind Christmas). It’s a holiday to celebrate all of the things I like: New England (where I’m from!), cooking, eating, spending time with my family, and not spending lots of money (well, except for on flights home). To make things even better, it’s also evolved into a day for 5k runs and football, two more things I like.
This year, we are spending Thanksgiving in Pennsylvania, with the Husband’s family. The Husband comes from a much larger family than I do, and Thanksgiving is a huge, family-oriented affair – 20 plus people. His aunt S puts almost the entire thing together. It’s seriously incredible – I have absolutely NO idea how she does it.
I am bringing our go-to pumpkin pie, and the Husband, a large case of Yuengling (Obvi. His family is from Pennsylvania, after all.) But in honor of Aunt S and her incredible Thanksgiving prowess, I’m posting one of my absolute favorite dishes from her table. Next week, back to our regularly scheduled (planning and) programming!
Aunt S’s Corn Casserole
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can creamed corn
- 2 slightly beaten eggs
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 package Jiffy corn muffin mix
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients, except for the cheddar.
- Pour into an ungreased 9×13 pan.
- Bake for 15 minutes. After that, pull the casserole out, spread the cheese on top and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
- Serve hot, warm, cold…it doesn’t matter. It’s delicious.
I think about this corn casserole all year. It’s that good. And while absolutely nothing about this dish is healthy, that’s what January resolutions are for, no?
PS: Would love to hear from others about favorite dishes you spend all year thinking about…
PPS: Any thoughts or comments on the new design welcome. I am a bit late to the blogging world, and slowly figuring it all out. This attempt to clean up the blog and make it feel a bit more personable is a first step!
