2 Easy Recipes I Made for Thanksgiving -

The night before Thanksgiving I had a few things to make to bring with us to Thanksgiving.   First I made Cheesey Green Bean Casserole.  It was a big hit last Thanksgiving so I decided to do it again this year. 

 It was simply 3 cans of green beans, 1 bag of shredded cheddar, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 3/4 c. milk, pepper, and the French's french fried onions.  Simply mix the drained green beans, milk, about 3. T of pepper, 1/2 a bag of cheese, and a 1/2 can of onions together.  Then top with the rest of the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Pull it out, cover it with the remaining onions and then bake for an additional 5 minutes.  It is super easy and amazing.
Here it is - ready to be baked
Next I made the Cheddar Ranch Cheeseball.  This is another super easy yet fabulous appetizer.  You will need 1 brick of cream cheese, 1 bag of shredded cheddar, 1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch dip or salad dressing mix and some Wheat Thins.

Let the cream cheese soften and then throw in all three ingredients into the mixer until well combined.  Layer a small bowl with saran wrap, scoop the mixture in, wrap, and then form into a ball.  Let is chill overnight and then plate it with Wheat Thins.  I promise if you make this people will love it.  Here it is ready to go in the fridge -

Both the Cheesey Green Bean Casserole and the Cheddar Ranch Cheeseball are two easy recipes you can make for any upcoming dinners or holiday parties.  They are inexpensive to make, but taste great.
