Thanksgiving Recipe

Mamakat's Marvelous Prompt:     Share a favorite Thanksgiving Recipe.  I got this one from my Aunt Madonna.  (Yes, that is her real name.)  It is one of the few things that I can cook reliably well, but I only make it during the holidays because it probably has 14,000 calories per heavenly spoonful.  This is also a pretty inexpensive side to make, so if you are counting pennies, this might be the dish of choice.

Corn Casserole


1 stick of butter, melted(I prefer Land O'Lakes)
1 large egg, beaten
1 box of Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 can(14-16oz) of creamed corn
1 can(14-16oz) regular corn, drained
8oz. sour cream

Use the stick of butter to grease the casserole dish before you melt it. Trust me.
Mix everything in a bowl.
Pour into greased casserole dish.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

There are variations of this recipe, from adding cheese to throwing jalapenos in there. It's all good, but some additions may make the cooking time longer. I don't think that you absolutely have to use Jiffy as your corn muffin mix, but that is the only one they sell around here.  I don't recommend using margarine, because it just doesn't taste as good.  Use the regular sour cream, too.  What the heck are you doing trying to lose weight on Thanksgiving, anyway? Start on Black Friday, when you'll be depressed about money anyway.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.  Enjoy yourselves! 


  1. I actually have a weight watchers version of this, it's still got a few calories but is lower fat. This dish is delish no matter the recipe. I make it to go with our Christmas Eve chili dinner. You're right so simple.

  2. Oh that is a good one Tina! Hmmmm...haven't had that in awhile.

  3. Ha! It definitely is close to the same recipe. I don't know how I would feel about the sour cream addition. I'll have to try that someday. Thanks for stopping by!!
