This Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin is one of my all-time favorite Christmas side dish recipes. It is not only easy to make, it’s really tasty too. I love this because I can make it in advance and simply cook it in the hot oven when I am ready to serve dinner.

Start by making a roux from butter and flour. Carefully whisk in milk. Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Add nutmeg and cheese. Season to taste and pour over the vegetables in a prepared breaking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake in the oven until golden brown on top and leave to stand for 10 minutes before serving.

To make my Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin, you will need the following ingredients:
