I used half and half cream instead of whip cream in order to cut down on fat...still came out great.
This was awesome!! I did go with the half broccoli/half cauliflower combo, and I also used cheddar cheese instead of swiss 'cause I really don't like swiss, and it turned out wonderful. The whole family enjoyed it. I'm sure I will be making this many times again for family get-togethers. I think it would also be great to add leftover cooked chicken or turkey to make a main-dish. Superb! Thanks! ~Manda
We love this recipe, I do not use the ham I add sauteed onions and a little sour cream and I top it off a little parmesan before adding it to the oven. Yummy!! Thank you!
