In our house, Brussels sprouts have always been popular. When I topped them with a creamy sauce, Swiss cheese and bread crumbs, it became a new holiday dinner tradition.—Gwen Gregory, Rio Oso, California
I DEVISED this recipe when I needed a quick and easy casserole to take to a friend's birthday party.
I opened a bag of this and a can of that and came up with a dish my family and friends love.
Luckily, I wrote it down when I made it. I had a hunch it was going to be a success!

Meet the Cook: When my husband worked as a deputy ag commissioner, he'd bring me bushels of vegetables from area farms. This pretty side dish is the result - it's easy to fix but impressive enough for company. We're busy retirees with five grown kids and a menagerie ranging from show dogs to miniature donkeys.

Here's a creamy comforting potato casserole to make when you need a side dish sure to please a large group. It's so simple to assemble, and everyone likes the flavor.
A creamy sauce flavored with cheese makes vegetables so much more appealing to my crowd. This holiday side dish will please even the pickiest veggie-phobics. It uses vegetables that are available year round, so it works for Easter as well as winter holiday meals.—
Meet the Cook: My mom used to make this hearty dish for family get-togethers. Now I do the same when our five grown children come to visit. My husband and I have a beautiful lake country home...and we enjoy fishing.
