Cheddar Cracker Crusted Veggie Bake

This Cheddar Cracker Crusted Veggie Bake makes the perfect side dish to your favorite protein OR makes for a delicious meatless meal. Annie’s Organic Cheddar Squares give this dish that cheesy crunchy topping, yum!

This recipe is a take on one of my all time favorite side dishes, cheesy potatoes! Also known as funeral potatoes in the mid-west. My version is a Four Cheese Hash Brown Bake and is comfort food heaven!

What’s all in it?

I used all organic frozen veggies from my local co-op. You can certainly use fresh veggies too, whatever your favorites are! I added in bell peppers, broccoli, and tri-colored carrots. Find out where you can shop at your nearest local co-op!

The rest of the cheesy mixture consists of Greek yogurt, butter, organic cream of mushroom soup, milk, shredded organic cheddar cheese, and a good melting cheese like fontina or havarti. Mix everything together with some salt, pepper, and smoked paprika, and bake!

Once bubbly and hot, top with crushed Annie’s Organic Cheddar Squares and more shredded cheese. Broil for just a couple minutes and the cheddar crackers will get nice and toasted.

Veggie packed with that addicting crispy topping, yum! I enjoyed this Cheddar Cracker Crusted Veggie Bake with some grilled chicken apple sausages, and it was even better the next day as leftovers!

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs organic frozen shredded hash browns thawed
  • 1 cup organic frozen chopped bell peppers thawed
  • 1 cup organic frozen chopped carrots thawed
  • 1 cup organic broccoli florets thawed
  • 1/2 cup milk dairy or non-dairy
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup organic cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup organic cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup fontina or havarti cheese shredded

For the topping

  • 1 cup Annie's Organic Cheddar Squares crushed
  • 1/2 cup organic cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a square 9×9 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients except the topping ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, stir until everything is well combined. Pour into prepared baking pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

  3. Remove from oven, turn oven on the broil setting. Sprinkle the top of the veggie bake with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and crushed Annie's Cheddar Squares. Place under the broiler for about 2 minutes, or just until the crackers brown slightly. Watch very closely to avoid burning.

  4. Serve alongside your favorite protein, or enjoy as a vegetarian main.

Recipe Notes

Use any veggie add-ins you like. If you have fresh veggies that would be great as well.
