Recipe by Aunt Paula

Strange name, but very yummy side dish. I'm not a fan of frozen mix veggies, but when done this way I sure am! I've used a 16 oz. bag and it worked just fine, and I've always used the cracker crumbs on mine.

This is a really good recipe. I like the frozen mixed veggies just cooked according to the directions, but I am the only one in the family that likes them that way. DH ate this tonight and enjoyed. That alone gets it a 5 star, not to mention that I loved it also!!!!
