I made this with a few alterations: subbed cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom (all I had on hand, but you could probably use any "cream of" soup), shredded cheddar instead of swiss (again, it was already in the fridge), tossed in about a quarter of an onion chopped since we were a little short on the French-fried onions (fiance likes to snack on these, so it wasn't a full can), and put in a little chicken sausage (chopped). Although I altered it a bit I feel it's fair to remove a star simply because the cooking time and temp didn't get the carrots cooked through. My fiance liked them crunchy, but I wasn't a fan. I think next time I will use just the broccoli/cauliflower mix. I almost added stock or water because it was super thick and paste-like prior to baking, but I'm glad I stuck it out. The veggies release plenty of moisture while cooking to make this a creamy, cheesy dish with just the right level of gooey. Didn't even need the garlic I almost added, either! Very good, just make sure you parboil or leave out the carrots unless you like them crunchy in your casserole... and adding sliced or diced sausage is a great way to make this a main dish. Very yummy!
