I remember my mother sending me to the store for "15¢ worth of store cheese". The butcher would cut off a slice from a gigantic round of cheese covered with a wax-coated cloth. Mother would then blend that cheese into this tasty dish. Today, the memory of Mother's cooking is like food for my soul. — Phyllis Burkland, Portland, Oregon
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.

With sausage, mushrooms, celery and the perfect blend of seasonings, this moist dressing is irresistible. I like to call it "Unstuffing" since it bakes separately from the turkey, which I do on the grill.

With a buttery cracker topping and lots of cheese, this lightened up classic casserole from Lisa Eldridge of Topeka, Kansas makes a guilt-free side dish at any meal. "I got the original recipe from a friend," Lisa notes. "And it is excellent."
Says Julia Daubresse of Sun City Center, Florida: “I received this recipe from my sister some 60 years ago and so many people have requested it since then! The potatoes are rich, creamy and taste like twice-baked. It offers make-ahead convenience, so it’s great for potlucks.”
