You probably know the basics that you are going to serve for your holiday meal; ham, turkey, or maybe even a nice beef roast. Instead of throwing some corn in a bowl, try baking this Cheddar Corn Casserole instead!
Cheddar Corn Casserole
1¼ cups crushed saltine crackers (about 27)
1 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons minced onion
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup milk
2 cups whole kernel corn, frozen or canned (drained)
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Combine crackers, milk, eggs and butter in a small bowl and let stand for about 30 minutes. Add the minced onion, Worcestershire sauce, milk, corn and salt. Mix well. Pour into a 1½ quart casserole dish. Bake at 325 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on the top and bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Here’s another great side dish that goes well with just about any entree. I love making my asparagus puff because it’s so pretty!
1 puff pastry sheet, thawed if frozen
¾ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 pound thin asparagus spears
1½ tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
Unfold pastry sheet onto a baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, score a line ½ inch inside the edge of the pastry sheet to form a border. Prick the pastry sheet inside the border with a fork. Sprinkle half the cheese onto the pastry sheet inside the border. Place the asparagus on a plate and toss with the olive oil and pepper. Arrange asparagus on top of the cheese, stacking to fit if needed. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Use a kitchen shears to cut the puff into 9 squares.
