This delicious cheesy casserole is made with the bounty from my garden. The dish includes a sunny medley of summer vegetables like eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes. It's so nice to cook with those abundant crops.

"My family loves this dish—even my picky 5-year-old," says RuthAnn Clore of West Peoria, Illinois. Our Test Kitchen helped her slash the fat in her recipe for a sweet corn bake with fewer calories but all the flavor of the original.
When I started using this comforting casserole recipe 25 years ago, it was just a creamed vegetable dish. Over time, I've enhanced it by trying different vegetables and adding nutmeg. I carry the recipe when I'm serving this, since someone always asks for it.

Since a lot of delicious onions are grown in our state, they are always part of my menu. This tangy side dish is good with pork and beef. The inspiration for this unusual combination was a prolific apple tree!—Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado
