Mama's Sour Cream Banana Pudding

Posted by Callies Biscuits on

My grandmother Rebecca, who we called Mama, made her banana pudding almost every week for a sweet treat. Her five boys and all of her grandchildren absolutely loved when she made it. Simple, Southern, and some of the best comfort food! 

Mama's Sour Cream Banana Pudding

Ingredients

    - 2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding - 2 cups cold milk - 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream - 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping - 3 to 4 bananas - 1 (11 ounce) box vanilla wafer cookies

Instructions

    1. Combine the pudding and milk and whisk by hand for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Whisk in the sour cream. Set aside 1/2 cup of the whipped topping and whisk in the rest. Mix well. 1. Cut the bananas into 1/4-inch-thick slices. 1. Spread 1/3 of the pudding mixture in a 2-quart casserole dish. Cover the surface with a layer of wafers, flat side up. Top each wafer with another, rounded side up. Place a banana slice on top of each wafer pair. Fill in the spaces between the cookies with sliced bananas. 1. Repeat with another layer of the pudding, wafer pairs, and banana slices. 1. Repeat with the remaining pudding, wafer pairs, and banana slices. Top with the reserved whipped topping. 1. Cover and refrigerate over-night.

      Try to purchase name brand ingredients for this recipe rather than generic brands. The better quality pudding and cookies make a difference. - Carrie

      Naughty Eggs

      Posted by Callies Biscuits on

      My husband loves deviled eggs. Although I tried to make myself like them, I was never a big fan. I added fiery pimento cheese, and now I crave them! I call these devilish creations "naughty eggs." They have become part of our regular spring and summertime repertoire. I recommend investing in a Tupperware egg tray if you are a deviled egg lover. These naughty eggs are easy to make and with the Tupperware container, you can pop them in the cooler and take them to the beach or out on the boat!

      Naughty Eggs

      Ingredients

        - 12 eggs - 1/2 cup mayonnaise - 3/4 cup Callie's Fiery Pimento Cheese - Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper - 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions and chopped pimentos for garnishing

      Instructions

        1. Boil the eggs for 5 to 7 minutes then peel. 1. Cut the eggs in half length-wise. Remove the yolks and place in a bowl. Place the whites on a platter or deviled egg dish. 1. Add mayonnaise and pimento cheese to the yolks. Season with salt and pepper. Fluff with a fork. 1. Spoon the filling into a resealable plastic bag, cut off one bottom corner of the bag and pipe the yolk mixture into the centers of the whites. 1. Garnish your naughty eggs with green onions or pimentos.

          Fall is for Fires—Outside Entertaining

          Posted by Callies Biscuits on

          Wow, I can't believe it is already Halloween. I love decorating and helping my girls with their costumes, but my favorite thing about this time of year is the entertaining. You simply can't beat boots, bonfires, and a bowl of chili! My friends and I came up with a creative way to make chili even better. We call it the Frito™ Pie. The kids love Frito™ Pie because they can serve themselves. If you use waxed paper bags there isn't much clean up. Chili is great-serve it on hot dogs, in Frito™ Pie, or on its own with any toppings.
