Creole Vegetables


"This recipe was handed down from my grandmother. It is a family favorite. A great way to use those garden vegetables. To save time, I cut corn from the cob while other vegetables are cooking."

This recipe is unbelievably delicious! If I could give it ten stars I would!!!!!!!! A time-saving/personal note: My husband and I live an hour from the nearest supermarket, so we rarely have lots of fresh vegetables on hand. I had the onion and bell pepper, but used canned diced tomatoes (drained, of coarse), and fortunately I had a bag each of frozen green beans and corn (not on the cob), which I just thawed in hot water. I used these in place of fresh vegetables, and the recipe still turned out fabulous!!!! For people without much time on their hands, this saves a fair amount of chopping and preparing. Just an idea.. worked for me!!!

Really loved this recipe. I ended up not even adding the evaporated milk because it was delicious without!


I used chicken bacon and light evaporated milk, and it tasted really good.
