This may actually win a world record for being the easiest and most delicious dish to make. Seriously. If you can open a few cans, melt some butter and stir, you can do this. And look like a rock star! Now most traditional Thanksgiving meals include stuffing or dressing and mashed potatoes, by law, I think. If not, it should be one.
Seriously, I’d throw an embarrassing tantrum if I went somewhere and stuffing and mashed potatoes were not on the menu at Thanksgiving. But I digress, the turkey and stuffing (and mashed potatoes!) may be the stars of the meal, but you need yummy side dishes to round out the meal. This is a great option.
For some, this may be one carb dish too many. Okay, I really can’t argue with you. But as a carb lover, it’s not like I’d be mad if you made it. 🙂 Just saying. Anyway, if that holds you back from making this on Thanksgiving, may I offer a suggestion? Make it for lunch.
Some of you may eat your Thanksgiving meal mid-afternoon, so you may not serve lunch. But in our family, we ate our Thanksgiving meal at Noon and always served a lunch/supper before everyone left in the evening. Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend any more time in the kitchen than I have to after the guests arrive. I want to mingle and have fun. And this is why you need to make this dish for lunch.
Seriously, if it takes more than five minutes to make, you either have a broken can opener or you were distracted by kids racing in and out of your kitchen or something. Plus, while we always served leftovers, it’s also nice to have a new dish or two to set out as well. And if I’m making some new to add to the table, it’s going to be easy! This will never win an award for being the most attractive dish in your Thanksgiving spread, but it is yummy and easy, which is what really matters!
Note: This dish is not cornbread. It’s texture is more similar to a soufflé or spoon pudding.
