Easy Creamed Corn with Country Crock & a Calphalon® Giveaway #HolidayVeggieDish

9 Shares

The holiday season is in full swing.  With Thanksgiving already behind us and Christmas rapidly approaching, it is clear to me I better be prepared.  Before I know it, it will be Christmas morning.  And while I am busy writing Christmas cards and wrapping presents, I also need to prepare for our Christmas meal.

Typically we like to have ham with a variety of side-dishes.  Holiday meals aren’t complete without veggies, and we always look forward to having our traditional green bean casserole.  I decided to try a new dish in anticipation of the holiday season this year.   Country Crock’s Easy Creamed Corn appealed to me.  The key word being- easy🙂 While I do like to plan ahead, I don’t have a ton of time to stress over every little detail.  My house is bound to be chaotic Christmas morning and afternoon, therefore an easy side-dish is in order.

This dish is indeed, true to its name- easy.  Honestly, it took about 15 minutes to make and it was an easy fifteen minutes without a lot of maintence. Plus it requires so few ingredients!  I actually had everything I needed without even visiting the grocery store.  Oh boy, I love that!

Country Crock has a variety of other recommend side-dishes to make your holiday tasty and easy.  Check out   Garlic Mashed Potatoes & Cauliflower,   Baked Spiced Squash, and Holiday Broccoli Saute.

But I think we’ve personally found a keeper with our new Easy Creamed Corn recipe.  I didn’t know making creamed corn was so simple.

Check out the Country Crock Chronicle for great ideas for your holiday dishes!

    Introduce new foods to your family early and often! Got some picky eaters? Shelly offers the same advice she’s used with her own daughter: At dinnertime, talk about everything but the food. Instead of coaxing your family to “take a bite” or “just try it,” keep the conversation lively while the rest of you are eating away. Pretty soon your reluctant eaters may find themselves happily nibbling on something new.
