How to Make Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin Casserold

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.
  3. Add cauliflower to boiling water and cook about 7 minutes (until crisp-tender). Drain, saving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.
  4. In a medium pan , melt butter over medium heat.
  5. Whisk in flour until it is blended.
  6. Gradually whisk in the milk, cream, and cooking liquid.
  7. Cook about 1 minute, whisking continuously, until mixture is thickened.
  8. Add in nutmeg, cayenne, salt and pepper.
  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!!!!!
