I’m working on my grocery shopping list for Easter Dinner on Sunday and thought I’d share two of my favorite Easter Dinner recipes. I always prep these before heading to church and leave them on time bake in the oven so I have very little work to do when I get home!
I’ve been making these for years and they’re always winners!
Cook time: 50 minutes Oven Temp: 350 Servings: 8-10
1/3 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin
2 cups whipping cream
½ cup butter, melted
6 extra large eggs, beaten
2 pkg. frozen golden sweet corn
- Mix the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and cumin together. Combine the cream and butter in a bowl and stir until blended. Stir in the eggs. Add the sugar mixture gradually, stirring constantly until combined. Stir in the corn. Pour into a buttered 9 X 13 inch or 2qt baking dish. Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes or until the center is firm and the top is golden brown. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
Sweet Potato Casserole
Oven temp:350 Cook time:45min
1 C sugar
1 stick butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1 can sweet potatoes – drained
1/3 C melted butter
1/3 C flour
1 C brown sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
- Whip ingredients until fluffy.
- Combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over top
- Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
I tried out another recipe with cooking creme. This time I tried the Santa Fe cooking creme. It’s not bad, I definitely like the italian and the garlic cremes better. I think the Santa Fe blend is a little spicy. My husband and cousin think it’s barely spicy at all. So I guess it all depends on how spicy you tolerate your food. For me, apparently, not at all.
However, I did like the recipe that I tried. (I just had to have lots of water when I ate it).
Santa Fe Chicken Casserole.
The only note I would make when cooking this is, if you’re not using a deep dish pie pan, put toothpicks in your casserole to keep the aluminum foil from sticking to the cheese. I lost a lot of cheese when I pulled my aluminum foil off.
I got my party pack the other day from House Party. It’s for the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme.
I decided to try out one of the recipes last night for supper, just to see what I think of the the cooking creme before my party. I tried out a Lemon-Broccoli Rick with Chicken. It was delicious!
The downside to the cooking creme is that it’s about $3 a container. I wouldn’t have tried it without receiving this house party. With my party pack I received coupons for 4 free cooking cremes, plus $1 off coupons for all my guests.
My opinion, cooking creme is delicious, and easy, and I think there’s a less expensive way to make a creme sauce for my food. But, I’ll probably start using these once or twice a month because they’re such an easy way to make a tasty meal with fresh ingredients. And with 2 little ones, I need all the help I can get!
