I recently lost 25 lbs. and am still working on it and was looking for recipes that were lighter for Thanksgiving or that I could lighten up. This was perfect! I subbed 1/2 cup no fat Greek yogurt for the mayo and used reduced fat cheese, 2 cups and no butter. I replaced the eggs with Eggbeaters and used 1 cup Panko bread crumbs on top. It was a hit!
Fabulous way to combine my two favorite vegetables. I didn't have any breadcrumbs, so I used some dry stuffing mix, crushed it a bit with a rolling pin, and drizzled 3 T butter on top. It was delicious! Even my husband liked it, and he's not a big fan of vegetable casseroles.
So I wish I would have read on cuz I used the listed amount of mayo. I would of preferred not to. I'm just learning how to cook at the ripe old age of 35. I ran into this recipe by accident. It's in the oven as we speak. I'm really looking forward to it. Somehow, I think it will still be delicious.
This is an easy, great tasting casserole. There's no need for the mayonaise and I use half the cheese. It can also be made the night before and simply warmed at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour the day of the dinner. Kids love this, too!
