I'm a home economics teacher, and finding vegetables recipes my students enjoy preparing and eating really puts me to the test. Many kids who say they don't like broccoli actually ask for second helpings of this one!—Cynthia Kolberg, Syracuse, Indiana
The first time I tasted this casserole was at a church supper, and I immediately asked around to find out who made it. I asked the cook to share her recipe, and it has become one of my family's most-requested dishes.

For almost 30 years, I've been preparing this zippy side dish for all sorts of gatherings. In fact, whenever I'm invited to an event that involves food, it's "understood" that I'll bring this casserole. Plus, it's a great way to use up hard-cooked eggs.

I took my mother's delicious sweet potato casserole recipe and gave it a new twist by adding the tempting taste of orange-a fruit very abundant in our state. The flavors are wonderful together and make this dish a family favorite. —Norma Poole, Auburndale, Florida
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.

When my daughter was growing up, I could get her to eat lima beans in this casserole with lots of cheese. She's an adult now and still thinks cheese helps almost every vegetable recipe!—Tickle Ragland, Hodgenville, Kentucky
