Broccoli Casserole and Green Bean Casserole For Easter Dinner

While the choice of vegetable sides and casseroles for Easter dinner are endless, the two mainstay vegetable casserole dishes that are brought by a guest to a Easter dinner are broccoli casserole or green bean casserole.  
 

Perhaps their popularity lie in the fact that, after enduring some travel to the family-designated Easter dinner home, both can be quickly reheated without tasting as though they were reheated.
 

Here are two quick and easy recipes for Broccoli Casserole and Green Bean Casserole:

 

15 Minute Broccoli Casserole Recipe:
1 Head of fresh broccoli or 1 bag/box of frozen broccoli florets
2 Cans of Campbell's Chicken and Rice Condensed Soup (original, not fat free or low sodium)
1 Can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese
1 lb Block of Sharp Cheddar
Cut the spears off the fresh head of broccoli, discard the thick stalk.
Place the fresh broccoli spears or frozen broccoli florets in a (1 1/2 - 2 qt) microwave safe casserole dish.
Pour just enough water into the casserole dish to cover the broccoli.
Cook in the microwave until the water comes to a boil.  Continue cooking at a boil for 5 minutes.
Let the broccoli stand in the hot water until the water cools down enough to safely handle.
Slice the block of cheddar cheese into flat rectangles while broccoli is cooling.
Poor out as much water as you can without losing any broccoli - DO NOT USE A COLANDER.
Poor in the two cans of Chicken and Rice Soup and can of Cheddar Cheese. 
Stir ingredients until even.
Place back in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes.
Stir ingredients again.
Place cheddar cheese rectangles on top of the mixed ingredients.
Microwave for 2 minutes or until cheese begins to melt.
 

15 Minute Green Bean Casserole:
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 Cup Milk
1 lb Fresh Green Beans or Frozen Cut Green Beans (let thaw)
1 Cup French Fried Onions
Preheat Oven to 375
Cut the ends off the fresh green beans
Place the fresh green beans or frozen cut green beans in a (1 1/2 - 2 qt) microwave safe casserole dish.
Pour just enough water into the casserole dish to cover the green beans.
Cook in the microwave until the water comes to a boil. 
Drain in a colander.  Return green beans to casserole dish.
Poor in the can of Cream of Mushroom soup and milk.
Stir ingredients until even.
Place back in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup french fried onions.
Stir ingredients again.
Place 1/2 cup french fried onions on top of casserole.
Place casserole in oven for 3 minutes.

Classic Deviled Eggs Recipe For Easter Eggs

MELBOURNE, Florida -- Deviled Eggs are a simple Easter dinner appetizer that is loved by many and despised by few.


Here is the classic deviled eggs recipe that was widely used in the 1950's through 1970's if you are looking for that "How did grandma or mom make deviled eggs?" recipe:


Hard boil your eggs (can do the day before Easter with a dying activity listed below.)
Chill the hard boiled eggs in your refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
Peel the eggs.
Slice eggs in half lengthwise.
Scoop out yolks and place in a mixing bowl.
Add 1 tsp. of mayonnaise for every two eggs into the mixing bowl (Equals 1/2 cup per dozen).
Add 1 tsp. of yellow mustard for every 4 eggs into the mixing bowl (Equals 1 tbsp.. per dozen).
Mix with a salad fork or whisk.
Use a teaspoon to evenly distribute the mixed ingredients into each hollowed half of egg.
Lightly sprinkle with paprika over egg white and filling.

While the ever-frugal generations of the past would find nothing wrong with dying eggs, conducting a home Easter egg hunt, and then converting the eggs into food, the Center for Disease Control offers some guidelines for egg handling:

What are the specific actions I can take to reduce my risk of a Salmonella infection from eggs?

  1. Like other foods, keep eggs refrigerated at ≤40° F (≤4° C) at all times. Buy eggs only from stores or other suppliers that keep them refrigerated.
  2. Discard cracked or dirty eggs.
  3. Wash hands and all food contact surface areas (counter tops, utensils, dishes, and cutting boards) with soap and water after contact with raw eggs. Then disinfect the food contact surfaces using a sanitizing agent, such as bleach, following label instructions.
  4. Eggs should be thoroughly cooked until both the yolk and white are firm. Recipes containing eggs mixed with other foods should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C).
  5. Eat eggs promptly after cooking. Do not keep eggs warm or at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
  6. Refrigerate unused or leftover egg-containing foods promptly.
  7. Avoid restaurant dishes made with raw or lightly cooked, unpasteurized eggs. Restaurants should use pasteurized eggs in any recipe (such as Hollandaise sauce or Caesar salad dressing) that would result in consumption of raw or lightly cooked eggs.
  8. Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs should be avoided, especially by young children, elderly persons, and persons with weakened immune systems or debilitating illness.
  9. Consumers can consider buying and using pasteurized shell eggs, which are available for purchase from certain stores and suppliers.


So, to stay within the CDC's two hour room temperature limit, eggs should be boiled and dyed immediately. The heat from the recently boiled eggs helps to absorb the dying and drying while the dying and drying helps with the cooling process.


Within 30 minutes from boil, refrigerate the eggs.  Do not use the eggs for an egg hunt in the Florida sun in Brevard County if you intend to consume them later.  Instead, use plastic eggs for the home hunt that can be re-used year-after-year as the frugal measure replacement.
