Ok guys, Any side dish/casserole ideas?

Wanting something a little different for Christmas dinner this year. Preferably a recipe that won't break the bank and is not too complicated. Anyone have any ideas?

  • Google Paula Deen's Broccoli casserole. It takes a perfectly healthy vegetable and makes it clog your arteries... which is why it is so freakin' delicious. :) We only make it on thanksgiving here. It is cheap though. Frozen broccoli, mayo, cream of mushroom soup, cheese and ritz crackers, though we used french friend onions instead.

  • My absolute FAVORITE is hashbrown casserole. Mix 1 bag of frozen plain diced hashbrowns, 1 can of cream of chicken, 1 cup (I like a bit more) of sour cream, and a few generous handfuls of shredded cheddar jack cheese. Put it in a casserole dish, top with more cheese and your favorite breadcrumbs (I like to crush up some French's onions) and bake until ooey and gooey. YUMM.

  • It really depends on what your main dish will be. A sweet potato casserole might be nice, or a fruit and nut brown rice pilaf, if you want something sweet. For something spicy, you might like Spanish rice. For something more veggie-focused, a corn and broccoli casserole with cream cheese would work. Or you could do loaded potatoes if you want good old comfort food.

  • cranberry orange relish is good, take the seeds out of three oranges, wash a package of fresh cranberries, pulse in food processor until chopped well, add up to a cup of sugar to taste.

  • If you have a crock pot you can dump a large 20oz or larger bag of frozen corn in then top with a 8 oz package of cream cheese and cook on low till ready to serve meal. We start it early in the morning and let it cook till everything is ready. After a couple hours stir the pot to mix cream cheese with the juice formed when the corn defrosts.
