Here are 2 variations of a really great dish. One uses soups, and the other uses a cream sauce that you make yourself. Both are great! I really like cauliflower, however my husband does not, so if I make this…..I have to eat it all by myself, or leave out the cauliflower. It’s not a problem…..it’s really good.
I like to use diced ham or chicken with this casserole, to make it a full meal. If I add ham or chicken, I usually double the sauce recipe on #1, and add an extra can of soup to recipe #2 I like it quite saucy!
4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 package (14 ounces) frozen broccoli florets, thawed
2-1/4 cups frozen cauliflowerets, thawed
1 cup cubed fully cooked lean ham
YOU WILL NEED:
1/2 stick melted butter
3 tblsp of Parmesan or Asiago cheese
1 cup of bread crumbs
Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray. In a mixing bowl combine soup, mayonnaise, onion and beaten egg. Place partially thawed broccoli and cauliflower in another large mixing bowl. Stir in onion, soup, mayonnaise and egg mixture. Add 8 oz. cheese and seasonings and mix well. Pour mixture into prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top. Toss together the Asiago or Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs & melted butter. Sprinkle evenly over top of casserole. Bake at 350º for 35 – 45 minutes.
