"My grandma made this recipe for every family gathering and there was rarely any leftovers. You can substitute the swiss cheese for cheddar and I usually mix the two together. It is easy to make and very delicious!"

    This recipe doesn't specify to thaw the veggies first, which you MUST do! If not you will have a hungry family waiting while you cook this dish twice as long!

    I use cream of chicken soup. I like the taste better.

    This is a really creamy way to make veggies. Great comfort food. It was originally called swiss vegetables, I believe. It is really good with swiss cheese which takes on a completely different flavor when it's melted. My kids would never guess there was swiss cheese in this.

    This is a great recipe! Super quick and easy to make and everyone loved it. I will definitely be adding this to my list of things to make when family comes for dinner. Everyone asked if they could bring some of the leftovers home!


I am a fifth grade teacher completely dedicated to my job. I spend most of my time correcting papers, working on lesson plans, and bettering myself as an educator. I love to share my joy of cooking and baking with my class through the use of recipe integration with math. I also bring a lot of treats to my kids. :) I am also a newly-wed just finding my feet as a cook for more than one. My husband and I love to fish and hunt, and also to eat what we catch. We always have a freezer full of venison, elk, and various fish. I replace most of the beef in recipes with ground venison. Many of my cooking skills come from my mother, who managed an upscale restaurant for a number of years. She also learned from her grandmothers, who were well know n for being fantastic chefs. My favorite recipe book is her collection in an accordion file that she has gathered since childhood. As you can tell, I LOVE Spongebob. It is the best way to wind down from a long day- you don't have to think! :) I am an avid reader, and must always have a book with me. As a teacher, most books I read are fifth grade level, although I do get to enjoy an adult book every now and then. My husband is an avid Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packer fan, so we watch a lot of sports. I love to be outside gardening, camping, taking walks, or just playing. We LOVE to grill, and my favorite is brats boiled in beer!! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
