A delicious cheesy white sauce makes these veggies oh so good! I like to mix the two veggies, but you could also use one or the other. Either way, if not a lover of these veggies, you will be after you try them. This delicious dish could be served as a side with just about anything. They were devoured by my family.

Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare your vegetables - either by steaming or boiling in salted water. Only cook until tender as they will cook more in oven and you don't want mushy vegetables.

In a medium saucepan melt your butter over medium heat. Whisk into the butter your flour and cook for at least a minute, stirring continuously.

Whisk in the milk and stir until thickened.
2
Remove from heat and stir in the salt, pepper, chives, nutmeg and cheeses. Stir until cheese is melted.

Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
3
Pour 1/3 sauce into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Place the vegetables over the sauce and evenly pour remaining sauce over the vegetables.
4
In a small bowl, mix Panko crumbs with the cheese. Sprinkle evenly over the top of casserole. Drizzle melted butter over the crumbs.
5
Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted.

Serve immediately.
