Carrot Broccoli Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
This colorful side dish feels right at home with any entree. The veggies are coated in a buttery cheese sauce, then layered with cracker crumbs. Even kids who turn up their noses at broccoli will eat this up. -Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario

MY REVIEW

This is SO scrumptious. I eat leftovers by themselves. This is a GREAT potluck dish for dinner parties. I like to make a fresh sharp cheddar cheese sauce (with milk, flour, butter and cheddar cheese) and use it instead of the Velveeta and butter sauce.

This is a great recipe for parents of young children and/or inexperienced cooks to take to Holiday Dinners! It's fast, easy and great tasting. Just be sure to use real butter!
