We called this the cousin dish as we tell our kids that broccoli and cauliflower are cousins. Anyway, we subbed for Colby jack cheese and 2 % milk. We used homemade pickled red peppers and Italian bread crumbs. It was tasty.
Took this recipe on vacation with friend's and it was a huge hit! I used fresh veggies and blanched them, it worked great. I had to sub cheddar cheese because I didn't have a grater with me and could only find block swiss. It seemed to work just fine. I wish I took a picture because it's a very pretty dish as well!
We love broccoli and thought this casserole was a great take-off from that. Made for Aus/NZ swap Oct. 2010.
