Easy Broccoli And/Or Cauliflower Bake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by little_wing

This is a casserole type side dish but no "cream of" soups in the ingredients. Goes well with all sorts of things. You can use 6 cups broccoli or cauliflower or a blend of each.

DH loved this more than I did and since personal preference is everything I erred towards the higher of our two ratings and gave this 4 stars. The garlic is a MUST because most of the real flavour comes from the garlic and the cheese. I used brown bread and not all of my chunks were really small, if I made this again I would endevour to make them smaller. I used home made chicken broth followed the recipe for the rest. Please see my rating system: a very easy to make dish that gives a new way to present either broccoli or cauliflower.. in our house we were a little devided over the rating but try for yourself because personal taste IS everything with some recipes. I am pleased to have tried it. Thanks !
