This is very Atkins-friendly, especially if you eliminate the flour and bread crumbs. I cut down on the peppers too, and because I'm in Germany and there's no squash or zucchini, I just used more onions and some mushrooms and it was great. We also obviously don't have Velveeta, but blocks of cheddar work just as well.
I made this for our Memorial Day picnic and , although my parents loved it, it wasn't a great hit with my grown children, mostly because of the noticable egg in it. I took the advice of the other cooks and didn't sauté the veggies, and they were just right. I think it is definitely a recipe that can be adjusted easily to be a pleaser...maybe a layer of cream of broccoli soup, rather than the egg/flour mixture? I think it would be even better if not for the noticable egg.
This recipe was pretty tasty--I got a ton of compliments. It made a ton too: Enough to feed about 15 people at a picnic. The only change I made was to saute the veggies in minced garlic and I just mixed all the other seasonings in the egg mixture. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it was kind of watery, even if after I drained the excess liquid from the veggies AND patted them dry.
Next time I might just try baking the veggies in the casserole instead of sauteing first. Thanks for sharing :)
This recipe was great! The only suggestion I have is to use some of the spices recommended. I will definetly make this again, and I've already suggested it to my mom!
This is a great recipe to play with. I skipped the onions, used extra peppers, tried with cheddar, also tried one with feta. I can't decide which one is better!
I have made this on two occasions and both times it was a hit. Great recipe!
This is fantastic! We can't get enough of this casserole. I've used many different veggies and it always turns out great. Also, I usually add small apple bits -- it's a surprising taste that works well with the recipe. I usually just toast some bread for the bread crumbs, and use half and half instead of heavy cream. Thanks for the great recipe!
This is a superb and easy recipe. Great for everyday or holidays!
