This Cheesy Broccoli-Cauliflower Bake is a delicious and healthy casserole dish that is loaded with veggies, cheese, and panko. It is creamy, golden, and super-yummy!
I bet many my readers are starting to think about the big night (Thanksgiving dinner) and already planning what to make, especially what will go along with the juicy and delicious roasted turkey. My family always like to serve it with roasted green beans, mashed potatoes, rice, salads, some type of stuffing, and cranberry sauce. But, I think baked casserole dishes are also a big hit for Thanksgiving dinner, right?
Keeping this in mind, I made this recipe a few days ago, and we love it. I was trying to make a veggie casserole because we already eat a lot at this dinner. I thought a lighter, veggie dish was the right way to go. Since this is a veggie casserole, many of you may think, “Hum… This is a little blah…” But you are about to change your mind! Give it a try.
The crunchy and yummy crust on the top of this dish and the softness of the veggies inside and the melted mozzarella cheese make this Broccoli-Cauliflower Bake a winner. Give it a try because it is really easy-to-make, gluten-free, healthy, and so cheesy.
I made this Broccoli-Cauliflower Bake on Sunday and kept it in the fridge for more than 3 days. I took some to work and warmed it up in the microwave for lunch, and it was still very flavourful. I believe you can keep it in the fridge for up 5 days, but I don’t think it will last that long just because this is so D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.! The panko really adds that extra crunch. I’ve been using it a lot recently, see my Roasted Green beans with Garlic Panko and Garlic Panko Salmon Recipe.

- Feel free to add different dried herbs to the casserole such as dried thyme, rosemary, or basil instead of oregano.
- Feel free to use any type of melty cheese if you don't have mozzarella. Try gouda, gruyere, cheddar, or parmesan.
