End of Summer Vegetable Bake

My favorite vegetable dish...ever.

1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
1 bunch of broccoli, broken into florets
1 Tb butter
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
3/4 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
4 eggs
1/3 cup half and half
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, divided

  • Cook cauliflower and broccoli in a small amount of water until crisp-tender (8-10 min.)  Drain.
  • In large skillet, saute onion and garlic in butter until tender.  Stir in tomatoes, seasonings, cauliflower and broccoli.  Cook, uncovered until heated through (about 4 min.) stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs and half and half.  Stir in 1 cup of Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese and vegetable mixture.
  • Transfer to a greased 2 qt. baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese and bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
