Creation of the Day: Veggie Bars

There are many recipe versions of Veggie Bars out there on the internet.  Several can be found here and here and here. Our family was first introduced to veggie bars by our dear DIL's parents at DS2 and DIL's wedding reception.  They are a family favorite, and DH requested that we make them for his pot-luck day at work yesterday.  So we did.  Two batches worth.  When my co-workers heard, they requested that I bring them to our pot luck today.  So last night I whipped up another batch.  Here's our favorite recipe for Veggie Bars:

2 pkgs refrigerator cresent rolls
8 oz cream cheese (may use lower fat version)
1/2 c mayo
1/2 c sour cream
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
1 bunch green onions
3/4 cup chopped broccoli
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup shredded carrots
3/4 cup chopped red pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Unroll cresent rolls and gently press into bottom of large cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.  Let cool completely.  Bring cream cheese to room temperature.  Beat together cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, and ranch dressing mix.  Spread over cooled crust.  Top with finely chopped veggies, pressing gently into dressing mixture.  Sprinkle cheese evenly over bars.  Cut into bars, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.    Enjoy!
