This Thanksgiving, show your family your love and appreciation by doing something special for them like cooking a side dish and dessert! We know half of you reading this immediately laughed thinking, “I can’t cook!” Luckily for you, we have two extremely easy recipes for this holiday season that only require basic skills in the kitchen.

Student-Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes

The first recipe is for a simple side dish that we can guarantee everyone will love. This corn casserole only calls for five ingredients (or six if you like extra flavor) and just 10 minutes of prep time.

Corn Casserole

 

Ingredients

1 container (8 oz) of sour cream

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 can (15 oz) creamed corn
1 can (15 oz) whole kernel corn (drained)
1 box (8.5 oz) cornbread mix

1 can (4.5 oz) diced green chiles (optional)

Cooking spray to prepare dish

Tools

Mixing bowl, spoon, quart-sized casserole dish

Directions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

 

Step 2:Melt one stick of butter in the microwave for about two minutes.

Step 3: Combine all of the ingredients in the mixing bowl by stirring them up with the spoon.

The green chiles are entirely optional, but they add a little extra kick that so many of us in Arizona have come to love in our dishes!

Step 4:Spray your quart-sized casserole dish with the cooking spray.

Step 5: Pour the contents of the bowl into prepared dish.

 

Step 6:Pop the dish into the oven and cook for 40 minutes.

Remove the corn casserole and top it with some shredded cheese, or enjoy as is!

 

Now that you have the oven on, you might as well make a dessert too. We promise this recipe is even easier than the last, and let’s be honest; you can never have too many desserts.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies

 

 Ingredients

1 can (15 oz) of 100% pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

1 box (18.3 oz) brownie mix

Cooking spray to prepare dish

Tools

Mixing bowl, spoon, 9×13-inch baking dish

Directions

Step 1:Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

 

Step 2:Combine both of the ingredients in the mixing bowl by stirring them together with the spoon.

 

Step 3:Spray the baking dish with the cooking spray.

Step 4:Pour the contents of the bowl into the baking dish.

 

Step 5:Pop the baking dish in the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes.

The brownies might appear under-done, so check them by inserting a toothpick or butter knife and you’ll know they are cooked through if it comes out clean.
