My kids eat more of the not-so-favorite vegetables with cheese. I’m not worried about weight gain from it because they will work it off around the farm. Besides, they get enough steamed/raw veggies served at school. Just try it once and if it’s not a hit, you don’t have to serve it again.
Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots mixed vegetables with cheese and french fried onions to top it off.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix vegetables, cheese, onions, and soup, with salt and pepper to taste. (I tend to go heavier on the cheese because my kids eat it better.) Put in sprayed 9" x 9" square dish. Spread flat and top with french fried onions. (Remember only 1 for taste testing for the one making it!) Cover with foil and bake for about 30-45 minutes.
Time depends on oven and how many other dishes are cooking with it. You will have to check to see that cheese is melted in vegetables. Remove foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking to brown. Remove from oven and serve.
This recipe is always requested by my daughter if we are having/going to a holiday meal. We think that as long as there is cream cheese, we could mix it with grass! I wouldn’t recommend trying grass, though, I’d use corn. This is literally the easiest to make and it will feed 10-12 people. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
CCC (crock pot cream cheese) Corn
A creamy corn recipe that I remember having growing up with.You can say the love of cream cheese goes from my mom, through me, down to my daughter.
32 oz.corn,partially thawed if frozen & mostly drained if canned
Add all ingredients to a non-stick sprayed 4 quart crock pot, Sprinkle a little sugar, salt, and pepper. Put lid on crock pot. Turn on high if eating in 3-4 hours. Turn on low if eating in 6-8 hours. Can stir occasionally if going to be around. This makes sure to get margarine and cream cheese to melt.
Mix thoroughly before eating. I use a very light sprinkle of sugar just to bring the sweetness of corn out. It's not totally for diabetics, but my family members eat some on special occasions because it's not something for everyday.
I created this recipe when I was trying to use up some frozen carrots. I used the typical green bean casserole as my inspiration because it’s such a hit in our house. My goal is to fix vegetables so my kids will eat them. This way they have to eat the carrots to get the french fried onions on top! I know blanched vegetables are better for you, but I think of ANY vegetable kids will eat is better than none at all. It’s only my opinion.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix carrots, cut onions. Stir in soup, salt, pepper, onion powder, & garlic powder (spices to taste). Put in sprayed 9" x 9" pan. Make it level. Add french fried onions on top. (Eating 1 is ok if you're the cook.)
Cover with foil and put in preheated oven for 30-45 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 15 minutes to brown.ch fried onions on top! Cook 30 min. if carrots completely thawed, 45 minutes if carrots not completely thawed
My mother-in-law asked me where I got the recipe, one day when they ate with us. I told her it was something I just put together. "Oh really?" This from the lady who taught ME how to cook. I was excited, inside, to get that kind of reaction from her because she's such a good cook!
Now depending on the size of our family gatherings, I get asked to bring this recipe or the corn recipe on here!
Mix ingredients from Parmesan cheese down in a bowl or large measuring cup. Peel and cut potatoes into bite-size cubes. I like to think of it as halve the potato the long way, Quarter the potato (cutting the other 2 pieces that haven't been cut the same way then chop, chop,c hop the long way getting smaller pieces. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Put a few potatoes in cheese mixture and stir to coat. It works better to put the potatoes in mix a few at a time instead of all at once, so they get well coated. I use a stainless steel scoop to mix it in the Parmesan mixture. Then the extra mixture falls through back in the bowl. Put in a sprayed 7" x 11" dish snuggly. Continue until all potatoes are coated and in the pan.
Put generous amounts of margarine on top of potatoes. That's what makes them crispy. Cook for 50-60 minutes. You can turn potatoes over halfway through cooking, but don't have to.
I buy the scoop in the pet section of the store. Yes, you read that right. It is a kitty litter scoop. Afyer I've paid for it I take it home, put in my dishwasher, and then in my kitchen utensil drawer. No harm, no fowl. It never touches kitty litter and you wouldn't know the difference if I hadn't told you my secret!
I brought this recipe from home. My mom used to cut the potatoes in spears, bread with just Parmesan cheese and we really liked them that way growing up. I just took the idea and added my own to it.
