Hamburger Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole

Hamburger Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole

Hamburger Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole is an easy and delicious dish. Ok, it’s not the prettiest dish. But it does deliver on taste! The boys loved it (very important) and they keep requesting that I make it.

Ready in no time

As it’s super simple and ready in no time, it’s the perfect dish for busy week nights. Or weekends, when you don’t feel like slaving in the kitchen for too long.  And as an added bonus, it’s low carb and gluten free. You really won’t miss the carbs, I promise, but please feel free to add a cup of cooked rice or cooked pasta into the mix, if you want to.

Variations

Not only is it easy and fast, it’s very versatile too. Change it up any way you like, buy using other meats, other vegetables, different spices etc.

250 ml (1 cup) heavy cream

200 g (7 oz) grated cheese*

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

Cook or steam them until they are al dente. You want them to still to have a bit, as they will cook and soften further in the oven. I steamed mine in the microwave for about 8 minutes.

Drain well.

While the veggies are cooking/steaming, brown the beef in a skillet or wok.
