Family Favorite Recipes
I have been asked for these recipes a couple of times--I forgot to post them when I said I would. So sorry for that.
Corn Casserole
2 sticks butter, melted
2 eggs
8 oz. sour cream
1 can kernel corn (drained)
1 can creamed corn
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
Mix all ingredients together for 2 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees in a 9x13 dish for 25-35 minutes. Easy and delicious--fattening too!
Ham Pie
1/4 cup shortening
3 T chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
6 T flour
2 cups milk
1 can cream of chicken (or celery) soup
2 cups diced cooked ham
1 T lemon juice
Saute onions and peppers in shortening. Remove from heat. Add 6 T flour. Mix together the soup and milk and gradually add to skillet.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in ham and lemon juice. Pour into greased 9x13 dish.
Cheese biscuits:
2 cups flour
3 t baking powder
1 t salt
5 T shortening
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese ( I use 1 cup)
1 small jar chopped pimientos
2/3 cup milk
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut shortening in with pastry blender until mixture looks like meal. Stir in cheese, pimiento, and milk. Round up on lightly floured surface, knead very lightly. Roll out 1/3 inch thick and cut into 10 biscuits. Use extra dough to fill in edges and corners of casserole. ( The recipe calls for the biscuits to be very thin--my hubby prefers them thicker--do whatever your family prefers.) This recipe is best with a regular ham--nothing sweet. I have used canned ham and the pre-diced kind. The leftover ham from Easter is best!!
Hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks so much for posting this.

I've never cooked with shortening. Is that the same thing as Crisco? I've seen commercials for Crisco. :)

Also, I'm going to leave out the onions and peppers. I don't care for either. Should I substitute another vegetable? Maybe asparagus? I love asparagus. Or artichoke hearts, maybe. What would be southern?

Also, what is canned ham? I've never heard of that.

I can't wait to try these recipes and I'll let you know how they turn out!!

That corn casserole is an absolute favorite in our family too! My husband grew up eating it, and so I was introduced to it when we got married. It's marvelous.
Have yourself a great weekend, oh faithful bloggin' friend!

Hi Jenna,
I saw the link to you Blog on Baseball and Bows. I hope you don't mind if I visit!
I saw your post below about sending your children to private school. Have you always homeschooled them? How are they feeling about going to school? I will be so interested in keeping up with this as I feel that we might one day send ours back...if that's what they want.
I started homeschooling last year when mine were in the 4th, 2nd, and 3rd grades. So far, we are so happy with our new life!!
It's nice to "meet" you. Come join us at OurPlace!

I will have to just salivate over this menu for now. I just started the weight challenge, but you better believe I'm bookmarking these for later. :) Thanks for sharing!

Thanks also for dropping by my blog. That made me laugh about what your daughter said about being on the computer all the time. :) I can relate......

Have a relaxing sunday,
