Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray 15 x 10 1/2-inch baking dish.
  2. Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add broccoli for about 3 minutes (until crisp-tender). Remove with slotted spoon.

  9. Remove from heat and stir in egg yolk and 1 cup of the cheese.
  10. Alternate layers of broccoli and cauliflower in pan....Spoon sauce over veggies and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
  11. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  12. I like to crush up Ritz crackers and sprinkle them over the top of this dish for the last few minutes of baking :)
  13. ENJOY!!!!!
