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!

How to Make ~ Saucy Cheddar Broccoli & Cauliflower Bake ~

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.
