Easy Vegetable Bake: back to recipe

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  • 10 c. veggies {I used about 3 - 3.5 c. carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower}
  • 1 10 oz tub Philadelphia Cooking Creme { use regular cream cheese if that's all you have}
  • 2 t. garlic powder
  • 1 T. Italian seasoning {or just throw in some basil, oregano, thyme, etc.}
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 "sleeve" butter crackers {I used Ritz}
  • 1 T. melted butter

NOTE: if you want to add chicken, just decrease the amount of vegetables by 2-3 c. and add 2-3 c. of cooked, shredded chicken.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Cook the vegetables in boiling water until somewhat tender {not necessary if using frozen vegetables}
  • Drain vegetables and add in cooking creme {or creme cheese} -- stir until melted
  • Add in garlic and other seasonings -- mix well
  • Add in  cheddar cheese -- stir until melted
  • Transfer mixture into a greased 9 x 13" pan
  • Crush one sleeve of Ritz crackers into a small bowl
  • Melt the butter in another bowl -- put butter over cracker crumbs and mix well
  • Sprinkled cracker mixture over the vegetables
  • Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes until crackers are golden brown.
