With the holiday season upon us, here are a few recipes to try for your gathering:
1-15 ¾ oz can of creamed corn
1-15 ¾ oz can of whole corn (not drained)
1 stick butter or margarine (cubed or melted)
1 cup uncooked shell pasta (or elbow)
1 cup cubed processed cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a medium baking dish. Mix all the ingredients in the dish. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove cover, stir and continue baking for 30 more minutes or until the pasta is tender. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for large families.
Chicken & Biscuits
1 cooked and deboned chicken
5 c. chicken broth
6 T. flour
1 c. milk
6 T. butter (or oleo)
2 cans of canned biscuits
Place chicken in the bottom of 9x13 inch pan. In a saucepan on low heat combine flour and butter. Add broth and milk. Cook until thickened. Pour over chicken. Top with biscuits. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes (when biscuits are browned). Turkey could be used instead of chicken.
