Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole Recipe

Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole Recipe

After I found this recipe in an old church cookbook, I adjusted it to make it lower in calories and fat. The creamy cheese sauce makes it a tasty way to get children to eat their vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

"I really like this recipe. I used milk & used 1 cup shredded cheese since I did not have the parmesan. I used crackers crumbs instead of bread for the topping. It came together easily. I will make it again."

"Even though I used real cheese instead of low fat. And whole milk, and a little extra seasoning, we found this very bland. We ate what was on our plates, and the leftovers went to the pigs."
