Carrot Coin Casserole Recipe

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. -Linda Phillippi, Ronan, Montana

"Planning to make this for Easter dinner, I was sure I had frozen peas in stock. I didn't. With local markets closed for the holiday, I wound up substituting peas with broccoli. I liked the result so well, I think I'd make it the same way another time."
