Both my husband and I really enjoyed this veggie casserole. In his words, "The vegetables were amazing. Definitely make them again." I made one little change - used shredded Colby Jack cheese instead of the Swiss.

I LOVED this recipe! We don't like m-rooms so I sauteed diced sweet onions instead. I had to also omit the c-flower due to I didn't have any. I used fresh carrots, frozen doesn't taste good to me & frozen broccoli & I steamed them w/some butter in my Ziploc steamer bags. So easy! I didn't have white pepper so I used black instead & I also added a little more onion powder & some salt to it, just cause it tasted like it needed a little more flavor. I also melted a little bit of butter to my cracker crumbs topping. The only thing I would do different next time is to make a little bit more of the cheesy white sauce. It just barely coated my veggies. I will DEF be making this again! It was also very easy to make! My whole family loved it! It also reheated well the next day for leftovers! Can also be made a day ahead too, to save time!

My family loved this recipe! I made a few changes due to lack of ingredients -- I omitted the mushrooms and used just a mixture of carrots, cauliflower and broccoli. I had Chicken in the Biscuit crumbs for the topping. It turned out great and we will definitely have it again! Great recipe!

Made this again this year for Christmas dinner, but I used Pepper Jack instead of Swiss this time. Was a hit again really good with either cheese.
