One of the first dishes my mom taught me is a tasty pairing of cauliflower, cheese and broccoli. It's absolutely my best side. —Devin Mulertt, Napa, California


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 package (8 ounces) Velveeta, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 packages (12 ounces each) frozen broccoli-cauliflower blend, thawed


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a Dutch oven, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 2-3 minutes. Stir in flour until blended; gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in cheese and salt until cheese is melted.
  2. Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in eggs. Stir in vegetable blend. Transfer to a greased 8-in.-square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, until set, 50-60 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
