#wherefoodmeetslife - life stories & more
tWhy is one of the most difficult daily task I can come up with is "what's for supper"? In the many conversations that I find myself having with others, they are facing them same struggles.
When you work a full day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is stand on your feet for another hour or more cooking. I like to find quick and easy meals that are not only good 'ole southern meals, but that don't require us waiting another hour just to eat.
Tonight's dinner was delicious, quick to make, and it fit right in with our "southern" style. Start out with a good #petitjean hamsteak, hashbrown potatoes from #simplypotatoes and #sweetyellowcornbake. This cornbake was a little different. I made it with sweet yellow whole kernel corn in lieu of the cream styled corn. The whole meal was done by the time the cornbake was ready, less than 30 minutes.
If you haven't tried the Simply Potatoes, you need to give them a try. They will not disappoint. I use these plain, loaded, or even in casseroles. They are delicious! Both Greg and I really love them. My little dog Farrah might even sneak a bite or two. She loves potatoes.
For the Cornbake:
1 box Jiffy Cornbread mix
3 Tablespoons of Light Sour Cream
1 Can of Sweet Yellow Corn (drain most - I left a little juice)
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Pre-heat oven to 400 Degrees
Spray pan (I use a 9 x 9)
Mix all Ingredients above in large mixing bowl until it looks creamy
Pour in your coated pan - Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 25 minutes - until cornbread looks golden brown (use pick test)
For the potatoes:
1/2 pkg of Simply Potatoes
2 Teaspoons of Lowry's Garlic Pepper
1/2 stick of margarine
Spray griddle or pan - Simmer until golden brown. I put in part of the butter at beginning and add the other halfway through and stir throughout. We prefer them a little crunchy so they are cooked until hash browns are golden and crunchy.
2 Petit Jean Ham Steaks
I spray grille or pan and cook until warm - I flip occasionally to get both sides grilled.
A delicious southern meal of ham, potatoes, corn & cornbread (cornbake)
The investment in the #serveiteasy utensils is the best thing that will happen to you. These utensils are heat resistant and can be used while you are cooking/grilling/serving.
The fork is my favorite. It works great flipping the ham steak. I also use it in place of my spatula to easily serve the potatoes. The long bendable handle makes it easy to reach across the burners. They are reasonably priced for less than $20.00. Check them out on https://www.serveiteasy.com
I have #partnered with serveiteasy to help promote this wonderful utensils. I truly do use these in my every day meal prep and serving.
