Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Bake

Tara Noland

It’s that time of year when friends and family gather and we are asked to bring our favorite side dish. What could be better than this delicious combination of veggies, cheese, and bread crumbs? How could you go wrong? The beauty is that this Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Bake is gluten-free as well and a treat for our friends who do not usually get to enjoy this type of dish!

Oftentimes, our gluten-free friends have to take a hard pass on most of the tempting Thanksgiving side dishes and it can be a bit of a bummer. However, this dish is sure to make them smile and included in the meal celebration. If you are looking for another wonderful gluten-free side dish, check out our Cheesy Cauliflower Gratin.
