Loved it! I doubled the corn starch (to 4 TBS) to help thicken. Additionally, and I may be wrong here, but the recipe doesn't specifically say to bring the mixture to boil. After adding the milk, I made sure to bring the whole thing to a boil, as for some reason I have it in my head that milk doesn't thicken much unless it hits a hard boil briefly. From there, it was great!

This was great! I was short on time, so I used a couple of frozen broccoli cauliflower mixtures(bags) and added bacon bits,half & half.I didn't use cornstarch-as the half & half thickened it with a little "Wondra" flour.The three teenage boys and husband said,mmmm.took only about 45 minutes from start to finish.Thank-you!!
