We had a couple of visitors the other day.
Yes, this nice pair really enjoyed themselves in our pool. Our presence didn't seem to phase them in the least.
Nor did the dogs.
However, past experience has taught us that allowing such creatures take up residence in your backyard is not a good thing. Especially when they decide to hatch nine little ducklings and teach them to swim in your pool. Sure they're cute, but boy do they make a mess.
After quite a bit of prompting, they finally flew away.
Okay, show of hands here. How many of you had ham on Easter?
Yes, my hand is in the air. And whenever I serve ham, there's one side dish that's the perfect accompaniment. However, I think this dish needs a new name, because Onion Shortcake just sounds kind of weird. So I'll share the recipe, then maybe we can rename this delicious side.
You're going to need:
These are almost there.
Set cooked onions aside.
In a medium size bowl, mix together muffin mix, egg, milk and creamed corn.
Pour mixture into greased baking pan, an 8x8 or something thereabouts works well.
Rinse bowl and reuse or simply grab another and mix your sour cream, salt, dillweed and half of the cheese.
Now add the onions and stir until blended.
Spread onion mixture over the batter, being careful not to disturb the corn mixture.
Top with remaining cheese.
Bake 25-30 minutes.
I think it's the hint of sweetness in the muffin mix that compliments the ham, but it really is the mixture of flavors going on here that is so delicious.
So about that name, Onion Shortcake. What say you? Good or needs to be changed?
