Vegetable Medley Casserole

You know that feeling you get when you are planning the menu for your holiday dinner and you get to the side dishes then you think, “If I have to make that same bleeping veggie casserole one more year I will just scream”?!? Oh yeah,  we’ve all been there!  Well, have no fear! I have the side dish for you!

A holiday side dish absolutely must fill certain requirements. It must be special. As in, it must be something you don’t make very often so that everyone looks forward to it all year. This Vegetable Medley Casserole ticks all of those boxes and much more!

  • It’s fancy – well, not really but everyone will think so!
  • It is a creamy cheesy veggie side dish – a requirement for every holiday dinner!
  • It has a crunchy topping made from cheez-its – Love it!
  • It will be requested often – for every holiday meal!
  • It’s  easy – very very easy!
  • You can make it the day before – the best reason of all!
