  • Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, plus more for topping, if desired

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Lightly butter a 7-x11-inch baking dish.

In a large saucepan combine the broccoli and cauliflower with peppers and onion; cover with water and add the 2 teaspoons of salt. Bring to a boil; cover and cook for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.

Meanwhile, in another saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add flour and stir until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Continue cooking and stirring until thickened. Stir in the pepper and 1 cup cheese. Arrange the broccoli and cauliflower mixture in the prepared baking dish. Pour sauce evenly over the vegetables. Top with French fried onions. Bake for about 30 minutes, until browned and bubbly. Sprinkle with more cheese, if desired, and cook for 5 minutes longer.
