Cheesy Mixed Vegetable Casserole

I love this recipe for Cheesy Mixed Vegetable Casserole! It’s cheesy, of course. But it also has a delightful Ritz Cracker crumb topping that pulls the whole casserole together. Truly this is the perfect casserole for company or holidays when you’re trying to come up with something a little different but don’t need something that takes an exorbitant amount of time to prepare.

I served this delicious side dish one Wednesday night for our weekly Bible study group meeting. Along with Grilled Ribs and other fixin’s we had a veritable feast that night. You can prepare this dish ahead if you need to. Then pop it in the oven about 45-60 minutes before you need it to be ready to serve.

Cheesy Mixed Vegetable Casserole is from a vintage recipe that I’ve had for decades. It uses sour cream, cheddar cheese, celery and onion in the base. Then it has a cheddar cheese and Ritz cracker topping on top. The combination is just outstanding. If you’re looking for a way to use up mixed vegetables this side dish comes together so easily.

Equipment

  • 1 2-quart baking dish
  • 1 medium mixing bowl

Ingredients
  

  • 2 12-oz. bags frozen mixed vegetables thawed
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 1/3 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups Ritz crackers crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter melted (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions
 

  • Microwave each bag of vegetables about 5 minutes on high.
  • Combine mixed vegetables with celery, onion, sour cream, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

NOTE: The original recipe calls for mayonnaise instead of sour cream. John doesn’t normally care for mayonnaise cooked in a recipe. I usually substitute sour cream instead.
 
NOTE: This can be baked at a higher temperature if you are trying to cook several casseroles at once. Adjust time accordingly.
 
NOTE: I have also prepared this casserole up to the point of baking and refrigerated it for several hours. If baking cold, it will take longer to bake. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
