I’m thrilled to be partnering with Market Street to highlight features, deals and more each month especially this recipe for Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole! #MarketStreetTX
When I was growing up, Sunday dinner was always a special occasion with a big meal like roast, ham or meatloaf with all the fixings. Now as an adult, I try to still make sure Sundays are spent with the family. And when possible, I try to make the dishes that also mean a lot to me with a few twists of my own. One of those is this Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole.
Most people fall into two categories: those who love brussel sprouts and those who hate them. I actually fell into the later group until a few months ago when I fell in love. After a trip to Slowbone BBQ in Dallas, I bit into their sell-out side, Cauliflower-Brussel Sprout Gratin, and couldn’t get enough. But I thought I could make it even better by adding broccoli and more cheese (there’s never such thing as too much cheese) to create my idea of the perfect side dish. So for special days like Thanksgiving or a Sunday dinner, this dish is the consummate side dish that you’ll trade your last dinner role or dessert to have just one more creamy bite.
It would be fitting that I would get all the ingredients together and forget the most important ingredient, the heavy cream! But no worries, where there is a will, there is a way and a substitute!
This dish it a combination of creamy cheese, the ultimate trio of veggies and little crunch that will keep you coming back for more…and more.Print
Inspired by a great recipe at Slow Bone BBQ in Dallas, I added a little something extra with broccoli and white cheddar.
- 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream (or heavy cream alternative)
- 1/3 cup chopped shallots
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
- 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
- 1 medium head of broccoli, trimmed and cut into small (1-inch) florets
- 1 1 medium head of cauliflower, trimmed and cut into small (1-inch) florets
- 1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese (divided use)
- 1 cup white cheddar, cut into small (1-inch) cubes
- Salt, pepper and white pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Combine cream, shallots and sage in large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
- Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brown bread crumbs (about 2 minutes) then transfer to a bowl to cool. Stir in parsley.
- Arrange equal mix of of vegetables in the buttered baking dish (13×9 or larger). Then add 1 cup of cubed white cheddar.
- Arrange remaining vegetables over the first layer. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
- Pour cream mixture evenly over the vegetables.
- Cover the pan with foil and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Remove foil from casserole; sprinkle evenly with toasted bread crumbs.
- Bake uncovered 15 minutes or until bread crumbs are browned.
Another item you want to make sure you have on the list is the right cookware. There’s just something about pulling whatever you’re making out of the oven and placing it on the table to share with the family as they share conversation over dinner and making memories. I remember what my grandma’s stuffed peppers smelled liked, taste like and looked like when she lifted the lid off the casserole dish. For this dish, I used both the white 7.9 inch Round Casserole with a lid and the 15.3 inch Rectangular Roaster.
