Thanksgiving Family Favorite Recipes!

Here are a couple of my family favorites that we have every Thanksgiving...what are your recipes that your family requests each year?

Cream corn:
1 stick of butter
1 8 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup of milk
2 cans of shoe peg corn
Jalapenos to taste
350 for 30 minutes

I always double the recipe - so yummy!

Green Bean Bundles:
Del monte whole green beans
Bacon slices cut in half
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp garlic salt

Put 12 to 14 green beans in a bundle. Wrap bundles in bacon. Overlap bacon on bottom side and put into baking dish.
One can is 4-5 bundles. Allow 2 bundles per person.
Melt butter. Add brown sugar and garlic salt and stir until completely smooth- this takes about 5 to 7 minutes.
Spoon sauce over each individual bundle. This amount of sauce is for 2 cans. ( I always make 6 cans os green bean bundles for out thanksgiving crowd!)

Bake uncovered 350 for 30- 40 minutes.
