And now, as it becomes safer to get together, it’s time to use the single greatest place to connect with loved ones: the dinner table.

Each one is designed to limit stress so that you can enjoy and spend quality time with your guests.

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 large eggs
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1 (15-ounce) package honey cornbread mix
1 (15-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (15-ounce) can creamed-style yellow corn
1 ounce sharp cheddar, shredded (about 1/4 cup)
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine plain Greek yogurt, eggs, granulated sugar, kosher salt, and melted butter in a large bowl; whisk to combine.
Add honey cornbread mix, whole kernel corn, creamed-style yellow corn; and sharp cheddar, and stir until just combined.
Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Stir until golden brown, about 1 minute. Sprinkle light brown sugar over butter, and remove skillet from heat.
Pour cornbread mixture into skillet. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool slightly before serving.
