Traditional Southern Thanksgiving

I usually serve a traditional southern dinner similar to my mom's. Roast turkey and gravy, stuffing made from breadcrumbs, mashed potatoes, green beans or green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, buttered sweet corn, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls and iced tea. For dessert, always pumpkin and pecan pie, sometimes apple too, and whipped cream served with piping hot coffee. Mom also usually did a baked ham also and sometimes I'll get a small one. It's a lot of work but so good!

Corn And Cheddar Casserole

Here's one that my cousin introduced me to a couple of years ago. Yum!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can cream-style corn, (14 3/4-ounce)
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 1 sm. box cornbread mix (approx. 8 oz)
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


Grease a 9-inch square baking dish. Beat eggs in a mixing bowl. Stir in cream-style corn and sour cream until well blended. Add salt, cornbread mix and melted butter; mix well. Stir in shredded cheese. Pour casserole ingredients into prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until browned.
