Corn Casserole (from my friends Trisha and Sara)
1 can cream corn
1 can whole corn
1 stick of melted butter
1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix
1 C of sour cream
1 egg, beaten
Combine all ingredients. Pour into a greased casserole dish and bake at 350 for one hour. TASTY!
Makeover chicken (also from Sara)
2 C of shredded chicken
1 C of plain yogurt
1 C of mayo
1 C of chopped broccoli
1/2 C of diced red pepper
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 1/2 TBS of minced dill
2 tubes of crescent rolls
1 beaten egg
combine all ingredients (except crescents and egg). Unroll crescents but do not divide into triangles–divide into rectangles (i.e. 2 triangles together). Spoon chicken mixture into each rectangle. Fold over and seal edges with a fork. Brush egg over top and bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve hot out of the oven. (once these cool they get a little soggy/soft on the bottom—I thought they were still tasty but not as good as hot from the oven)
