Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole
You want to know how to get your kids to eat the vegetables? Start with this loaded casserole! Beyond the cheese, beyond the sour cream and look past the fried onions, it’s nothing but vegetables! Anyway I can get those kids to eat vegetables is a win in my book. They loved this Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole so it’s going on my regular side dish rotation!
And your whole family will love it!
This has been a great side dish and I’ve served it at more family gatherings and it’s so popular on the buffet!
It’s one of my favorite meals for the holidays because it’s easy to make and can be made ahead a day or two, covered with foil and tucked into the refrigerator until you’re ready to heat it up.
Easy, cheesy, delicious!

What is the best pan to bake in – glass, pyrex or metal?
When it comes to baking a casserole, glass or pyrex is your best choice. Both glass and pyrex take longer to heat up, but conduct heat well and get super hot. An oven-safe dish is a must. Another must? Dishwasher safe for easy clean-up!
Can I substitute fresh vegetables in this dish?
You can but you would need to steam or roast them first. This is the perfect time to take a shortcut and use frozen vegetables. This is a terrific pantry-staple side dish!
What’s the best cheese to use in Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole?
I recommend sharp cheddar cheese. It gives a tanginess to the recipe that makes it a real winner! Though you can certainly substitute with Monterey Jack or Provolone Cheese. If you do use a milder cheese a handful of parmesan will add the sharp saltiness of the cheddar.
See that cheesy goodness? I don’t know what you’ll love more: the cheesiness of this casserole or the crunchy onions when all of this bakes up to golden, bubbly deliciousness! Mmmm!!!!
Even my husband, hater of all vegetables, ate this one up! The cheese, the cheese is the main motivator for him!
