"My grandmother used to make this at Thanksgiving and Christmas to fill out the usual sweet potato casserole and dressing menu. This was always one of my favorites. It is very easy and very tasty! It is a good way to get your kids (and reluctant DH's) to eat their vegetables!"

"A wonderfully versatile and delicious recipe that makes including plenty of vegetables in one's diet all the easier; and enables one to add into it any other vegetables that are in abundance or needing to be used up. As a garlic and herbs fiend, I just had to include minced garlic and some herbs - rosemary, sage and thyme, a favourite combination - and I followed mums the word's suggestion and used half mayo and half low-fat sour cream. Apart from that I made this exactly to the recipe and portioned it into four small round casserole dishes: three destined for the freezer at the end of step 3 and one cooked for about 15 minutes. Great to know that those other three portions are in the freezer waiting to be enjoyed in the future. :) Thanks breezermom for a great vegetable recipe. Made for Zaar Stars Tag."
"This was a great casserole! I brought it to a dinner banquet and someone stood up asked who had made the vegetable casserole because they had to have the recipe! We did make a few changes. Doubled the vegetables, but kept only 1/2 stick of butter in the recipe. A lot of people wanted the recipe that night! I will definitely substitute sour cream or yogurt for some of the mayo next time to help cut back on the fat. Thanks tons!"
"Delicious! Imade the recipe as directed using "Summer Mixed Vegetables", A mixture of asparagus, carrots and squash. I used only 1 cup of cracker crumbs mixed with 3 Tbls of melted butter. We loved this dish."
"Wonderful, versatile veggie casserole. This is a great one to use up leftover veggies. I used a frozen asparagus medley (asparagus, red peppers, summer squash, broccoli and cauliflower. I used crushed Ritz and panko crumbs for the topping. Very easy to put together. Thanx!"
"I've made this two times now and loved it both times! The first time I made the recipe exactly as written but the 2nd time I added a 10oz can white chicken to it to make this a main dish. Thanks for such a great recipe!"
"Loved this! I've made it twice now. The first time as written and it was yummy, hubby loved it. Since I thought this was just a bit too much mayo, the next time I used a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup instead. Its a definite keeper and has been added to our dinner rotations. Thanks so much."
"An easy yummy side dish! I skipped the onion and celery & used less mayo. I had guests coming over & made this dish & they were really impressed & asked me about the recipe. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for posting."
"Very good way to use left over, fresh or frozen vegetables depending on how much time you have. I added mushrooms (cooked them partially first until tender). <br/><br/>One package of frozen vegetables did not provide enough vegetables compared to the other ingredients so like others, I used two packages plus the mushrooms, kept 1/2 cup butter, and used a mixture of olive oil mayonnaise with low fat sour cream. The recipe, as is, also lacks seasoning and since our family likes a little kick, I added a mixture of seasonings along with a couple of tbsp of chopped jalapenos (not too hot but a little extra flavor).<br/><br/>I gave it 4 stars because of the lack of seasoning and the ratio of vegetables to other ingredients. Otherwise it is a very versatile quick and easy way to serve your family a lot of tasty vegetables."
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it was really good and very easy to make. The topping could be reduced by half but depends on what size baking dish you use."
"I've been making this for years. My family always requests it, especially during the holidays. I do make one small change - I half the mayo and add sour cream instead. It gives it some zest and reduces the fat. You can use light sour cream easily but the mayo seems to break if you use light. Enjoy! Thanks for posting!"
"Family loved it."
"Great for a pot luck. I used light mayo and sour cream to cut the calories a bit. A cauliflower, carrot and broccoli mix worked great."
"Yes, we share the same grandmother! So I couldn't help but post a review for this one. This casserole is so yummy. Even when I was 8 years old I gobbled it up. Yum."
"This was really good! I used the steam fresh veggies and made two alterations, used the suggestion of half sour cream and half mayo and I replaced half of the cheddar cheese with pepper jack to give it a little bite. YUMMY! Will be making this often."
"Love this recipe. It's been a favorite in our family for over twenty years. Recently began omitting mayo and substituting cottage cheese for protein. We also like Cheez-its or other cheesy crackers instead of Ritz."
"Everyone really seemed to like this at the family dinner I made it for. I followed the instructions fairly closely, though I left out the celery and added about the equivalent amount of fresh carrots chopped small. I also added some salt & pepper, cut down the mayo to about 3/4 cup based on the other reviews and just covered the top in seasoned bread crumbs instead of buttered crackers. It is definitely a keeper. Next time I think I would add some herbs such as oregano or thyme or dill to take it to the next level."
"Although I pretty much followed the recipe, I did make one small change & also made an addition ~ Instead of the Ritz cracker crumbs I used Miltons' Original Multi-Grain Crackers which we always have on hand, & I also added some lemon pepper (which, for those who don't know, includes some salt as well as garlic)! I don't usually use frozen vegetables, but did it this time around & found the casserole very satisfying! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]"
"This was great, I made a few changes, I used sour cream instead of mayo (not a mayo fan) and I added salt, pepper and garlic powder after cooking the veges. Everyone loved it, a definite repeat recipe. Thank you!"
"This was a nice and easy way of preparing a basic veggie casserole. The crumb topping was a great idea and worked out really well. However we found the casserole to be a little too bland for our taste and so I added some Italian herbs, garlic, onion and chilli powder as well as some herb-infused butter to the sauce and crackers. Ill make it again with these slight tweaks.
I also used part yogurt for the mayonnaise and my sauce was still creamy and yummy.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe with us, breezer!
