“This recipe is scrumptious! The sour cream gives it a "what is that" type flavor! You will be the hero of the pot luck, so take the recipe card with you. I got this from my mom who has made it the same way for 34 + years! For richest casserole, use Ritz brand crackers, as store brand don't seem, to me, to be as flavorful. I adapted the recipe to add a little color and more veggies to the younger ones! Trust me, they will eat their veggies in this casserole. Enjoy!”
