Yesterday, I shared a few side dishes that make an appearance on my Thanksgiving table. There's never a shortage of food to share with friends and family, so I've got a couple more recipes to share with you today.
Scalloped corn is quick and easy. Usually I can throw it together with bits of leftovers from other dishes I'm making. If there is half-and-half or cream laying around, I use it instead of milk, just because I know it might go to waste later in the week. I sometimes add some green peppers or green chile peppers that are already chopped up, too. But this recipe is my jumping off point.
I usually don't have too much oven space available on Thanksgiving. I cook my turkey in a roasting oven, but I often have a slow cooker going, too. I learned how easy it was to cook my dressing separately in a crock pot about 10 years ago, and I've been doing it ever since.
This is my standard dressing in a crock pot recipe. I've made it with Russian brown bread before, but typically just buy already cubed bread crumbs intended for stuffing. Shortcuts are fantastic sometimes!
I have a few more go-to side dishes for my holiday dinner, but I have to find some balance between typing up recipes and tidying up my house for company. The latter wins.
