    I love chow chow that mostly corn. You used to be able to buy in the grocery but it disappeared a long time ago. It is fabulous on cottage cheese.

    The chow chow I've eaten had more cabbage, peppers. I've had corn relish. Love it too!
    They still carry it at the grocery around here (Kroger and Publix). I've found it at farmers markets, fruit stands and specialty food stores.

    My chow chow has green tomatoes, red and green bell peppers, cabbage and onions in it.

    Neither have I, Gutmutter. I am wondering if it is a Southern specialty.

    Chow Chow is just a relish. The recipe I have can either be made into a sweet relish or a non sweet one. I would have called it a relish hod my mom not called it chow chow.

    I have been looking at various recipes for breakfast casseroles, since we are doing a big family Thanksgiving Breakfast this year. I did a trial run on one with sausage, bread, cheese, milk, etc. I cooked it in a 9x13 glass dish. I wasn't impressed. It didn't blow me away like some I've had before. It seemed thin, bland and just not very egg like.



    The ones I've had before were hearty and rich. They seemed like real eggs in the dish, not some watery, nonidentifiable substance. Any suggestions? I've read a couple that have shredded potatoes in it and a little onion. I'm not sure if that will take away from the egg taste. I want to keep the egg flavor. I'm going to prepare another one this weekend with a few different ingredients.

    I like pumpkin, but I've never tried any of that pumpkin spice stuff that I thought was any good. It all tasted like artificial pumpkin to me. I'll stick to pumpkin in baked goods.
