Ive been making this for my husband for years. It's his grandmother's receipe its very similar to this one except try not cookies g the veggies before, just choose up the broccoli and I use pearl onions but slices of a regular onion works as well mix the two and add to a casserole dish. Make the white sauce and pour over veggies. Then double the cheese and use grated swiss instead of cheddar and bake for and hour so the veggies cook.

The white cheese sauce really makes this recipe good. Overall it's very tasty. It tastes better than what it looks. I took it to Christmas and people passed over it, but I knew I would enjoy eating it and I did. It'd challenging cooking the broccoli and onions initially. I steam them but there are so much vegetables, I did it in a couple batches. It's probably not the most low calorie dish to make, and there is a lot of dairy in it, but it's a tasty combo.

We all (even my steamed veggie and cauliflower hating dd) really liked this. I used a combo of brocolli, cauliflower, mushrooms and vidalia onions. The down side, of course, is the high fat and calories. I did use neufatchel, skim milk and olive oil marg to try to make it a bit healthier! I also left off the breadcrumb topping. I put mine over steamed fingerling potatoes and the sauce was good on them, too! Thanks for a good veggie dish!
