  1. I had some broccoli & cauliflower in the vegetable bin that needed to be used plus 2 small sections of smoked sausage. This is the first recipe to come up in the All Recipes search - so I modified! I blanched the broccoli & cauliflower and shocked. I also seared the sausage flesh as it - Read more ...
  2. The only change I made was to use fresh broccoli and cauliflower because I had some I needed to use up. I also kept it covered until the last 10 mins to hold some of the moisture in since I was using fresh and not frozen vegetables. Turned out great. Even my mom liked it.
  3. I have made this several times and it is always a hit! I add garlic generously as my family likes it. I hate cauliflower, but I don't mind it this way!! It has been requested I make my "broccoli thing" for Thanksgiving, so I guess that means it is good :) OH! and I don't - Read more ...
  4. This was pretty good - I really liked the flavor on the cauliflower but not so much the broccoli. I also cut down on the butter (and only made half a recipe which I'm glad - it's rich). Pretty simple to make so i'll make again at some point!

  8. I couldnt find 16oz packages of veggies so used 12.5oz. Doubled the recipe and put into a deep 10X12 baking pan. Did not thaw veggies since Im not baking until tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
  9. I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner which was held at a location out of town. I liked that I could make it ahead and bake it when we arrived at our destination. I made it without changes and it was very tasty and enjoyed by everyone.
