Here at PennySaverUSA, we are right in the middle of our Thanksgiving Recipe Contest, where people are submitting their recipes for a shot at winning $250. We have received some very traditional recipes, as well as some not so traditional side-dishes that caught our attention. Our Content and Community guy, Brett Houchin, decided that he needed to try to make one of the non-traditional side dishes to add to his Thanksgiving cooking repertoire. He’s not a big fan of following recipes, so this was a quite a challenge for him!
We are receiving some great Thanksgiving Recipes for our PennySaverUSA.com Thanksgiving Recipe Contest! Great turkey, stuffing and dessert recipes along with some wild side dishes! Brett, our Content/Community guy, is going to attempt one of these dishes tonight, and he is by no means in line for a Food Network show of his own, lets put it that way. Which one of these do you think he should make?
1 can cream style corn
1 can whole kernel corn-don’t drain
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup uncooked salad or elbow macaroni
1 cup Velveeta cheese
Put all in buttered casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. Double for more than 8 people.
This dish goes good with ham, turkey or prime rib. It’s easy and everyone wants seconds!!
