2 New Recipes

I just had to share these 2 new recipes I came across last week at my mothers looking threw a Paula Deen Cookbook. I had never heard of these before and of course with it being summer time, I'm always looking for vegetable sides good for Kyle to make out of our garden. I hope you love the 2 new recipes as much as I do. 

First Recipe:
Corn Casserole

1 can whole corn
1 can cream style corn
1 pkg Jiffy Corn Muffin mix
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup butter(1 stick)
** Mix all together combine in a oven safe dish at 350 for around 40 mins.

Our thoughts: This was delicious! It was a wonderful twist on a normal vegetable dish. My kids loved it, which is the goal in this house. My children are not normally picky. I just try to make vegetable dishes many different ways for Kyle's PKU diet. He said "Wonderful new idea mom!!" 

Second Recipe:
Vegetable Pancakes
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 cup grated carrots(2)
1 cup grated zucchini
2 green onions, sliced
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
** Mix dry ingredients together. Mix egg with veggies, once coated good combine the 2 mixtures together. Fry on each side about 2 minutes. Recommended to top with sour cream.

Our Thoughts: Wow, I made with Kyle's baking mix and he loved this same basic concept only PKU friendly! Regular recipe shared above was fantastic as well. I would of never thought of making veggie pancakes. Its a wonderful idea. We ate as a side with our meal on night and really a wonderful new way to sneak in some veggies for the kiddos. My kids loved this idea. We did top with sour cream and it was wonderful!
