Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
  • 16 Ounces frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 16 Ounces frozen cauliflower florets, thawed
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/4 Cup milk
  • 4 Ounces cream cheese, cubed

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and 1/2 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning in small bowl and set aside. Cut up any large broccoli or cauliflower florets into bite-sized pieces.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add the onion and cook about 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, remaining 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper. Add the milk and cook until thickened and bubbly. Add cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and cook, stirring until cream cheese is melted. Add the vegetables and toss gently to coat. Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle top evenly with crumb mixture.

Bake 40 minutes or until heated through and top is lightly browned.

Broccoli Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Broccoli Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
