Southern Fried Okra

NOTHING beats a batch of okra, fresh from the garden. Golden brown, with a little fresh green color showing through, these okra nuggets are crunchy and flavorful. My sons like to dip the fried okra in ketchup.

Fried Sausage Grits

Fried Sausage Grits

Fried Sausage Grits

My mother used to make a version of this recipe using hominy and salmon. One day I substituted sausage and grits and decided I liked it better than the original.

Red Beans and Rice Mix

Red Beans and Rice Mix

Since there's food galore during the holidays themselves, I like giving this zippy mix as an after-Christmas present instead. I just slip the containers of seasoning, beans and rice into a decorative paper bag. A recipe card completes the package.

Hearty Rice Dressing

Hearty Rice Dressing

At church socials and family reunions, this satisfying dressing has always been well received. It's a favorite with our family, too. I cut back on the recipe to serve a smaller group. -Ruth Hayward Lake Charles, Louisiana

Chili-Cheese Bake

Chili-Cheese Bake

Chili-Cheese Bake

Since my husband's a Navy meteorologist, we've sampled food all over the world. I adapted this recipe from one I was given while we were stationed on the Aleutian Islands. Fresh meat was difficult to obtain in that part of Alaska, so I learned to make many meals featuring grains and legumes instead! We're looking forward to retiring soon to a small farm in central Maine. All three of our children were 4-H leader for 9 years.

This pleasant pasta dish offers an elegant way to round out almost any meal. And with so few ingredients, it couldn’t get much easier! Mandi Smith - Knoxville, TN

Sweet N Sour Beans

Sweet N Sour Beans

Sweet N Sour Beans

This recipe is popular on both sides of the border. It came from a friend in Alaska, then traveled with me to old Mexico, where I lived for 5 years, and is now a potluck favorite in my Arkansas community. It's easy to keep the beans warm and serve from a slow cooker. -Barbara Short, Mena, Arkansas

Grits Casserole

Grits Casserole

Grits Casserole

Grits is a main ingredient for many Southern meals. I've had this recipe for years and never grow tired of it. It's especially good to serve on a lazy weekend, since leftover portions are very tasty served cold.

Pecan-Corn Bread Dressing

Pecan-Corn Bread Dressing

Plenty of pecans and bacon give this stuffing a unique flavor— while using a packaged mix cuts down on the preparation time.

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before! My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.

Rhubarb Corn Bread Stuffing

Rhubarb Corn Bread Stuffing

This distinctive stuffing is awesome alongside ham, chicken or turkey. I've been a rhubarb fan since I was a girl, so when a friend suggested this recipe, I had to try it. Now when I serve this side dish, my guests are usually curious about my special ingredient...and they love it! -Kathy Petrullo, Long Island City, New York

Sausage Corn Bread Dressing

Sausage Corn Bread Dressing

Sausage Corn Bread Dressing

The phrases “holiday dinner” and “low-fat” are seldom used together, unless Rebecca Baird’s corn bread stuffing is on the menu. Made with turkey sausage, herbs, fruit and veggies, this recipe lets you enjoy all the trimmings without the guilt, notes the field editor from Salt Lake City, Utah.
