This convenient and colorful party classic from Linda Austin in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, can be made several days in advance. In fact, it actually tastes better if prepared ahead so all the fresh flavors can blend together. Best served at room temperature with a crusty loaf of toasted French bread or your favorite crackers.
Can't decide whether to cook vegetables or pasta for a side dish? Try combining them in this medley. It received rave reviews at our volunteer fire department meeting. Now, I make it for other covered-dish suppers.
My mom had many "winning" recipes, and this was one of our family's favorites. I can still picture these Corn Stuffing Balls encircling the large meat platter piled high with one of her delicious entrees. —Audrey Groe, Lake Mills, Iowa
My mom came across this rustic-looking flatbread recipe many years ago and always made on Christmas Eve. Now I make it for my own family, especially during the holidays. It's easy to double or cut in half depending on how many you're serving. —Diane Berger, Sequim, Washington
With great blue cheese flavor and nice texture from the pecans, this super-
simple spread has a company-special feel. Perfect with veggies or crackers, it’s ideal for parties. —Sherry Hulsman, Elkton, Florida
