Old Family Vegetable Recipe for Thanksgiving

My side dish recipe for this weeks Progressive Dinner Blog Hop is an old family recipe from when I was a child. My mother would make a cream sauce for our vegetable side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner every year. We would use it for homemade creamed corn, creamed green beans, homemade creamed spinach, and over brussels sprouts or on a mixed vegetable dish like this cauliflower, broccoli and carrot vegetable medley I am using this week for my Progressive Dinner side dish recipe

Giveaway has ended.

Our giveaway is for a two piece Oval Baker Set from Rachael Rays Oven to Table Stoneware baking dish set. I love these baking dishes. You can bake in them and serve in them. They are safe from freezer to oven and are also microwave and dishwasher safe.

They are easy to handle with the built in handles. The set comes with a 1-1/4-Quart and 2-1/4-Quart stoneware bake dishes. They are the perfect size to make a large casserole and a side dish. Last week for my Progressive Dinner main dish I baked a 3 1/2 pound turkey breast in the 2 1/4 quart baker dish . You can easily bake a large chicken or a small turkey in it.

    I’d love to try the 3.5-Quart Covered Rectangle Casserole – Red . Honestly, I’d love to try them all in red. Love the look of these and we can really use them.

  2. Starr Greenwell says

    I would really like to try the 18-Ounce Mini Oval Casserole – Red ; it’s the perfect size and I love red:)

  3. jennifer sorenson says

    I would love to win the purple rectangle casserole one! These look amazing, we could sure use these! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  4. michele cozzi-dublin says

    the oval bakers set would be lovely. could always use extra serving bowls. added bonus they look great too.

  5. Kylie C says

    I think the 2 QT round open baker (in orange of course) would be great for taking big casseroles or treats to church potlucks.

  6. Sarah Marshall says

    I think my favorite is the 9 x 13 Inch Rectangular Pan – Purple! All of her stuff is just so colorful and fun!

  7. Sheryl says

    I would like the 18 ounce Mini Oval Casserole in Orange. If you haven’t used stoneware you are really missing out. So easy to clean.

  8. Vicki D. says

    I would most like to try the 4.25 Quart Casseroval™ – Green. I have been looking for a casserole that I could use in the oven and then be stylish enough to serve it in also.

  9. alyce poalillo says

    I think the Bubble and Brown 4.5-Quart Large Oven Oval – Red would be the most versitile for me but I like the EVOO set too
