Corn Casserole
I have carried this casserole to sooo many church potluck dinners. In fact, I used to have a pretty enamel casserole dish that was specifically for this dish. Not only is it pretty, but it’s delicious as well.

2 cans of cream-style corn.
1 package of Jiffy corn mix
2 beaten eggs
1 T. of milk
½ cup of onions, chopped
¼ cup of butter
½ pint of sour cream
½ cup of cheddar cheese, shredded

Saute chopped onions in butter. Mix corn, muffin mix, eggs and milk in a large casserole. Add onions and mix together. Dot with sour cream and add the grated cheese on top. Bake at 325 for 1 hour. This casserole raises so be sure to use a big casserole dish.

Another Corn Casserole

This is an old family favorite. You can either bake it or put it in your crockpot.

½ cup of evaporated milk
1 large package of cream cheese
3 cups of white shoe peg corn (though you can use any cut corn)
1 can of chopped green chili peppers (optional, but a nice addition)
Cheese, shredded

Mix together cream cheese and milk. Ad corn and peppers and mix together. Pour into a casserole dish and top with shredded cheese. Bake in a 350 oven for about 25 minutes.

Broccoli Corn Casserole

1 (10 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli
1 small onion, chopped
8 oz. carton cottage cheese
1 ¼ sticks of margarine or butter
4 eggs

Melt butter and pour into 9X13 pan. Mix other ingredients together and pour over butter. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until brown.

Broccoli Tree Salad
This recipe probably has a proper name, but this is what my mom always calls it. There are several versions of this recipe. I took what I liked from all of them. I also like to serve this in a clear truffle serving dish I bought at Wal-mart.

Four cups of raw broccoli
One pound of bacon, cooked and crumbled (no bacon bits, please!)
¼ cup of green onions, chopped
½ cup of golden raisins
½ cup of sunflower seeds
1 cup of mayo
½ cup of sugar
½ cup of red wine vinegar

Just dump everything into a big bowl. Just be sure you mix your mayo, sugar and vinegar in a separate little bowl first and then add later. Stir everything around really good and refrigerate.
