Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

User Rating 4 Star Rating (5 Reviews)


A basic white sauce with Parmesan cheese makes this a flavorful side dish. The combination of broccoli and cauliflower makes it a nice dish for the holidays.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of broccoli and cauliflower pieces
  • milk
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash nutmeg, optional
  • 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika


In a large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add broccoli and cauliflower; cook just until crisp-tender. Drain cauliflower, reserving liquid. Add milk to the vegetable liquid to measure 2 1/2 cups.

Turn vegetables into a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in the saucepan over medium heat. Blend in the flour, stirring until smooth and bubbly. Gradually stir in milk mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth. Season with the salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour sauce over broccoli and cauliflower. Dot with remaining 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter. Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and paprika; sprinkle over vegetables. Bake at 450° for about 20 minutes, until casserole is bubbly.
Serves 4.
