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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups 1% milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen cauliflowerets, thawed
  • 1 cup cubed fully cooked lean ham
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray


  • 1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Add cheeses; stir until melted.
  • 2. Place vegetables in a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with ham. Pour sauce over ham. Place bread crumbs in a small bowl; spray with butter-flavored spray. Sprinkle around the edge of casserole.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through and bubbly. Yield: 5 servings.

"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."
