Reviews for Broccoli-Cauliflower Cheese Bake
"Flavors were good - I liked the addition of cayenne pepper and nutmeg. I didn't change or modify anything. Originally found this in my cookbook, "Taste of Home Best Loved Healthy Recipes" - I'd certainly make this again."
"I made a recipe for 4. I doubled the spices, butter, flour, and mustard; used 1 cup milk and 1 1 /2 ounces of each cheese. The reviews said it was a little bland, well it was still a little bland but okay for a one time prep."
"This was a nice change from our traditional cheesy veggies. But the kids didnt care for the cayenne. Will probably omit that next time!"
"Where did the beautiful casserole dish in the picture come from? The casserole was great. I added a little extra (Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle for our taste)."
"My family really enjoyed this dish - The ONLY thing I did different was use parm instead of swiss since we don't care for swiss - I've been asked to make it again for New Years Day."
