We are getting ready for our Puppy Bowl party and wanted to share some of our favorite recipes with you. Since there will be a few extra dogs at the party I want to make sure that there is nothing in any of the food that could make the dogs sick which means no onions, grapes, or chocolate. Dogs will be dogs and they will jump on tables, steal food off plates left unguarded, and sometimes they just get to have a little treat when their owner isn’t watching. Since many of my favorite recipes are dog friendly I thought I would cook them up and share the recipes with you before the big day. These are also great and easy recipes for your Superbowl party too!
Easy Side Dish using Cream Corn and Frozen Vegetables.
Author: Two Little Cavaliers
Recipe type: Side Dish
2 bags Frozen California Vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots)
2 cans cream corn
Preheat Oven to 350.
Open the cans of cream corn and pour into the same container you will be cooking this Vegetarian Casserole in. If you are going to season this side dish now is the time. I prefer to season the cream corn before adding the vegetables because I think it combines more easily. You can season with your favorite seasoning or just leave it plain – for me it is too sweet without adding a little spice but the original recipe does not call for any seasoning.
Open the bags of partially frozen vegetables. You want it to thaw enough that the vegetables are not a giant ice ball but you do not have to wait until they are thawed completely. Pour the two bags of vegetables in and stir to coat them with the cream corn.
Cover the cooking container and place in the oven for 45 minutes.
Open carefully and let cook another 10 minutes uncovered.
(If you are not 100% sure when dinner will begin you can allow to cook longer as long as the oven stays at 350. I personally like it to cook longer and while I have tasted it at this point it usually goes back into the oven.
This recipe has been inspired by Susie Fishbein’s Kosher by Design Short on Time and has become a staple dish I bring with me to dinners or to events where you are supposed to bring the ingredients and cook the dish there.
Step by Step Picture Instructions for this Cream Corn Vegetarian Casserole
Gather your ingredients and your cooking dish. Since this is for a party I chose to use disposable cookware so that I don’t have to worry about clean up while my guests are here.
There is not need to use oil in the pan. The Vegetarian casserole does not stick. Just pour the Cream Corn right in and season.
Add the partially thawed California Style Vegetables. I have used just broccoli and cauliflower mix when I couldn’t find the right one but people seem to enjoy it with the carrots more. It also adds extra color.
Stir it all together so that the partially thawed vegetables are covered in Cream Corn. Mine is seasoned and that is why there are little pepper flakes in the picture. But seasoning is optional.
Let cook for 45 minutes or longer. Then cook uncovered for 10 minutes.
