Crunchy Vegetable Bake Recipe
While traveling in Kentucky a few years ago, my husband and I enjoyed an excellent mixed vegetable dish at a restaurant...and the owners were kind enough to share the recipe. It makes four casseroles so it's great for a church supper or other large group. -Jean Voan, Shepherd, Texas
