I need ideas for a vegetable hot-dish. Nothing too out
of the ordinary, but maybe different than green bean casserole. Thanks
for any ideas.
How about a broccoli casserole, potato casserole, squash casserole or calico beans?
If any of these sound good, I'll be happy to share the recipe for any or all of them.
I have taken all of them to church potluck suppers.
Someone else is bringing potatoes. Would love your recipes for broccoli casserole and calico beans. Thanks
Hi, are you insistant on being a hot veggie dish? I'll post a few of my favorites, but this 1st one is cold, great for the summer and very tasty.

Usually I like a more healthy version of veggie dishes but this turned out to be VERY addicting. I still owe Star a review on this. I made 1/2 and it still made quite a bit.

Every year our church feeds all of the fair & carnival workers one day at lunch. Each Sunday schools class is given an assignment - vegetable, salad, chips, desserts etc. I just got back from helping with that today. We had mixed vegetable casseroles, broccoli with light cheese sauce, corn, lima beans, baked beans, green beans, corn on the cob, macaroni & tomatoes plus various types of potato dishes. I was surprised that the plain veggies went before the casseroles. I won't bore you with all of the salads, fruit & desserts plus fried chicken & ham.
The carnival workers especially were so appreciative of having real food instead of the fried options that we look forward to at the fair. We had a new carnival this year so they were really in awe of all the food we had. I think we feed about 125 people today plus several takeout plates for later.
Another part of the ministry is to give gift bags with sample size lotions, soaps, tooth paste etc for the workers. We also take carryout type styrofoam containers so that they can also go back and fix a plate for supper. We want them to take all of the food because we dump most of the leftovers as we hold this outside under a tent.
