Looking for a good vegetable side to serve at a large family event.

My DD's baptism is this weekend and I am hosting a dinner after church. We are having pulled pork barbeque sandwiches w/ baked beans and cole slaw, but I really feel like we need a vegetable too. Any suggestions for a veggie side that is easy to make a head of time and can serve a large group??

  • Corn pudding is SO easy and so delicious! Its more like a casserole, but I bet would taste fab with the baked beans...depending on how many you need to serve you could easily double it....this recipes says it serves 12.

    Ingredients:
    1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn,
    drained
    1 (15 ounce) can cream style corn 1/2 cup margarine, softened
    1 cup sour cream
    1 (8.5 ounce) package dry cornbread mix

    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together the whole kernel corn, cream style corn, margarine, sour cream, and corn bread mix. Pour into the prepared casserole dish.
    3. Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
