You can change the cheese in this recipe to suit your tastes. I use whatever I have on hand. Cheddar adds a nice flavor.


  • 3/4 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • 3/4 cup fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • Additional Parmesan cheese, optional


  1. Place the first three ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain and keep warm. In another small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Reduce heat. Add American and Parmesan cheeses; cook and stir until cheeses are melted. Pour over vegetables and serve with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.
