Creamy Cauliflower and Broccoli Gratin

cauliflower and broccoli gratin recipe


  • 500 g cauliflower
  • 300 g broccoli
  • 50 g butter
  • 2-pack bacon (2 x 140 g)
  • 0,5 dl flour
  • 1 dl water from the cauliflower and broccoli
  • 2 dl milk
  • 2 dl cream
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 150 g Mozzarella, grated
  • 1 dl Parmesan, grated
  • fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/355°F
  2. Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into smaller pieces.
  3. Simmer the cauliflower and broccoli in salted water for about 3-4 minutes, to soften them a little, but not too soft.
  4. Remove the cauliflower and broccoli with a spider spoon into an oven-safe form and save 2 dl water from the pot.
  5. Cut the bacon into 1 - 2 cm pieces and fry until golden.
  6. In a pot over medium heat, melt the butter and stir in the flour. Then add the cream, milk, and the water you saved from the cauliflower pot, and bring to a boil while stirring. Keep stirring until thickened. Add more saved water if you want a thinner sauce.
  7. Spread the bacon on top of the cauliflower and broccoli. Pour the sauce evenly on top of the cauliflower bed and spread the mozzarella and parmesan on top.
  8. Bake in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.
  9. Serve with fresh parsley.
