Broccoli & Cauliflower Gratin
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets (about 3 cups)
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets (about 3 cups)
1/2 lb bacon
3/4 cup cream
1 tsp (heaping) flour
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup bread crumbs (can mix seasoned with Panko)
6 tsp butter
Place a large pot of salted water on to boil. Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into florets, and once water boils, drop them in and let them cook for 1 minute. (Any longer and they are too mushy after baking.) Drain and place in a 9x13 casserole dish.
Cook bacon until crisp and drain on paper towels. Crumble.
In a bowl combine the cream, flour, and cheddar as well as the bacon. Pour mixture over the cauliflower and broccoli and top with bread crumbs. Drop teaspoons of butter all over the top and place in 350 degree oven. Let bake for 40-45 minutes until the top is nice and golden brown.
