Thanksgiving Meal Musts : Gulliver's Corn + Green Bean Casserole

I'm bringing these two little gems out of the vault just to make sure you didn't miss them.  These easy recipes are ultimate must-haves for Thanksgiving at our house.  And people are always asking for the recipes!

The first, Gulliver's Corn, is a recipe my mom had gotten from a restaurant decades ago.  It's truly the BEST cream corn you'll ever taste.  And, the second, Green Bean Casserole, has buttermilk and parmesan, and something about using the frozen french cut green beans instead of canned green beans makes it WAY better than the traditional Green Bean Casserole that most people make.

Gulliver's Corn

2 (20 oz) packages frozen yellow corn
1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 pint milk, preferably whole milk
1 tsp salt
6 tsp sugar
pinch of black pepper
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
fresh chives for garnish (optional)

1. Combine corn, whipping cream, milk, sugar, salt, and pepper in a pot on stove.  Cover and bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

2. Blend melted butter and flour in small bowl.  Add to corn mixture.  Combine well then remove pot from heat.

3. Pour into oven-safe casserole dish and top with Parmesan cheese.  Place dish under broiler in oven until evenly browned (watch it carefully so it doesn't burn!).

4. If desired, garnish with fresh chives.  Serve warm.

(Way Better) Green Bean Casserole

1 bag (16 oz) frozen organic french cut green beans
1 can Campbell's Low Sodium Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can-full of buttermilk (use the soup can to measure)
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese + plus some extra for on top
1 can French's Fried Onions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine green beans, soup, buttermilk, pepper, and Parmesan cheese in an oven-safe casserole dish.  Stir to mix well.
2. Sprinkle the top with French's Fried Onions and an extra dash of Parmesan cheese.
3. Bake for 45 minutes.  Serve warm.

Thought I'd get these out to you while you're still planning for next week's meal.  We'll be away from home in NYC again this Thanksgiving, but this time with my parents (yay!).  We'll miss the traditional meal but we're stoked to be enjoying the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rockettes performing at Radio City Music Hall for our holiday!  What are your family's plans for Turkey Day?
