Looking for some "Signature Sides"
 
I have been looking for some new signature sides for my catering jobs. I currently do a cheesy tater dish and a baked bean dish (very similar to kerri's). I have no plans of halting these dishes, but would like to add to them.

I have tried roasted red taters with herbs, but they always shrink up and get less appealing to the eye. Then there is a squash casserole which not everyone likes.

I am thinking in the way of corn and blackbean salsa, something fresh and zesty....

My only thoughts are.... it has got to be a big hit... It has also got to be prep friendly and cost effective for catering. I know of a bunch of great sides but they do not happily meet these requirements. So simple yet delicious is a must!

Any good ideas will be appreciated.

To a hot cast iron pan, add chopped bacon. About the size of postage stamps. Render it down then add chopped onions and bell peppers. When the onions start to get translucent, throw in a bag of frozen corn kernels. When corn starts to brown ever so slightly, pour in some heavy whipping cream, stir and serve as soon as the cream get hot.

Fried cabbage. Yum!

Garlic & butter cabbage (the whole head).

Folks will love it when you toss a great big head of cabbage at em.

Core out the bottom of the cabbage & put in a couple cloves of garlic and some seasoned butter. Wrap in foil (optional, but advisable) and bake/smoke/grill.

Your too close and I am on my way back. Big Mista has all my secrets anyway... I will have him dealt with if he returns to Texas though.

This is always a hit with my folks.

Chuckwagon corn

1 can regular corn
1 can cream style corn
1 package of Jiffy cornbread mix
1 stick of butter
8 ounces of sour cream
1/4 cup of milk

Drain the regular corn. Melt the butter. Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well. Grease a glass baking dish (8 x 11 or 9 x 13) and add the mixture to it. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 60 minutes or until the top begins to split and brown just a bit.


I have a good tater salad recipe too, but it ain't exactly prep friendly:rolleyes:

Grilled Southwestern Corn Cobetts -Buttered corn on the cob sprinkled with a mixture of California Chili Powder, Cumin, Ground Mexican Oregano and Salt.

As an alternative, you can set up a 'corn cob bar' with a selection of sprinkles for the corn. (Southwestern, Italian Seasoning mixed w/Garlic Salt, Cajun Seasoning w/ a touch of fine grain salt, Regular Season Salt, Kosher Salt n Cracked Black Pepper, etc.) I use plain restaurant shaker cans for this set up.


Tortellini Pesto Salad. -A cold salad with Cheese Tortellini and Basil Pesto tossed with shredded Parmesan cheese. This is a HUGE fave of my clients in spring and summer.

I make a killer veggie pasta salad that has become a popular choice when we cater. It has almost as many veggies as pasta.
