Reviews for Broccoli Cauliflower Bake
"We really enjoyed this! Some changes I made: I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us; I used Colby Jack since it was what I already had; I omitted the chilies because my stomach can't take spicy food; I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of stuffing. Still tasted wonderful! I'm not a fan of broccoli but I ate all of this. One note: in the future I will cut up and boil the veggies beforehand, to cut down prep time."
"If I could give this a 10, I would! I made a few wee changes for personal taste, however. I do not put in canned green chilies--never, ever liked their flavor. I do add 1 tsp. lemon pepper and for extra pizzazz, I add 1/4 tsp. cayenne. But these are just personal additions--you can make the dish as it's written. It's creamy, comforting, and flavorful. Oh, and good for you as well!"
"We make this dish at least twice a month! My family loves it!!"
"*I accidentally used seasoned bread crumbs instead of stuffing, and crushed some salt & pepper flavored potato chips for 1/4 cup of the topping.*This recipe was absolutely delicious! My husband got 2 or 3 helpings and he doesn't even usually like cauliflower. The chilies make all the difference I think. This is a keeper!"
"A good casserole.... I did add crushed pecans to the casserole and topping. Also, a small onion carmelized, and one red pepper and about 1 tsp garlic powder.... awesome!!"
"Love this recipe - it's a holiday favorite!"
