This sounds great and similar to one I make and for some reason I wanted some crunch in there so I added chopped water chestnuts - it was pretty good that way. And then another time I used Fontina cheese or Gruyere, I can't remember, instead of the cheddar - it was good too. Thanks for the recipe - I think this is going to have to be a Thanksgiving dish! I really like the ranch dressing addition. Mine was topped with Pepperidge Farm dressing but there is nothing better to top a casserole than Ritz crackers mixed with a little melted butter! I can't wait to add mix your recipe with mine (it will be mostly yours though! ) The chive and onion mixture has to just take it over the top!!!

You had me at crispy (spinach) I had to take a peek. Texas, like the creamy combo of ingredients and the Ritz crackers. I was thinking about making this one as a side around holiday time, but yours is VERY tempting. Bet it would be great with your broccoli salad (I like my Veggies.) See what you think. Thanks texas.
