These Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Sticks are the perfect addition to your meal as an appetizer or side dish. They are a great way to incorporate vegetables.
I’m sitting here with the balcony curtains open watching the Disney fireworks go off and listening to the animals at the Animal Kingdom. It’s been a long week with many sleepless nights but the days have been with fun with character sightings and lots of rides. I almost forgot to mention that we’ve been hit with three different illnesses causing people to drop like flies and hole up in their rooms.
I just finished the night off with a cheeseburger and grapes from our resort room. After this trip, it will be back to healthy eating and low-carb dishes.
Before I left I made these easy Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Sticks. Years ago I had made some Cauliflower Breadsticks when cauliflower was circulating like crazy on the web. There was cauliflower pizza, cauliflower rice and I even made some bacon cauliflower pancakes. For this recipe, I decided to add my kids favorite vegetable (broccoli) to the mix by making it broccoli cauliflower cheese sticks.
You could even make it a pizza by adding the marinara to the top. These Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese Sticks will become a favorite for your family and especially when they want something cheesy.
Boil cauliflower and broccoli in a pot of water for 5 minutes. Remove and drain. Place the vegetables on a paper towel-lined baking sheet for about 1 hour. (You want most of the water to drain from vegetables.) Replace with new paper towels if need be.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place in a blender with the egg, salt, flour, Italian Seasoning and 1 cup of cheese. Pulse until well blended. Pour into a shallow 10.5 by 7 baking pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 20 minutes and then remove it. Top with the rest of the cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Then broil for 2 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing and serve with marinara.
*Season with more salt after cooking if it needs more*
