MckLinky Monday: Christmas Dish

This time of year is my ABSOLUTE favorite time because we get to celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus (and my dad) on December 25th and we get to eat LOTS and LOTS of great food! Me+food=BFF's for life.  

I love the traditional Christmas meals that we do when we go visit my in-laws in Michigan and I also love the white trashed version of a "traditional" Christmas that we celebrate in my small Oklahoma town which looks a little something like this:
Yes, the family tree is built out of beer cans.  Don't be jealous.

But getting back to the subject of food, because we need to think about something other than the beer tree, I'll tell you I'm a sucker for a good casserole dish.  Green bean casserole is usually in attendance at both MI and OK celebrations;
I'm drooling..

 And of course my momma's WORLD FAMOUS Broccoli Cheese Casserole makes an appearance at both places (because it's my signature request item and I only get this delicious dish 2 tiny times a year and no Mrs. Edwards, your granny's isn't better!);
Of course we make a double batch because one whole pan is just for me

But this year, I'm making an additional casserole.  It's my newest favorite.  My friend IRL, Kelli, gave me this recipe several months ago and let me just tell you now, you will THANK ME (and her) for bringing this little piece of heaven into your life. It's called.....

*insert drum roll here please*

Corn Casserole
This is the part where I should say that you must like corn to like this recipe.  And who doesn't like corn?  

It's so simple to make.  All you will need is:

  • 6 cans of corn- DRAINED
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • chopped jalapenos to taste with seeds (1 if you don't like spicy; 2-3 if you do)
  • salt and pepper to taste
And then you just mix it all together, place in a 9X13 dish and bake at 350 until warm.  How easy is this?  And of course it's totally fat free and low calorie (and I'm also a liar). The first time I made this, I didn't drain the corn so we had corn soup instead and guess what?  It was STILL a hit at the dinner table.

So what is YOUR favorite Christmas dinner dish?
