Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese: The Most Delicious Dish Ever

There’s nothing better than a cheesy vegetable. Especially when it’s a cauliflower and broccoli combination, a.k.a. cauliflower cheese.

The cauliflower cheese was invented by a woman named Ethel Brown. She was a homemaker who, in 1922, decided she needed a better way to feed her family and create a new dish for dinner.

The original recipe consisted of cauliflower and broccoli florets mixed with mayonnaise, parmesan, milk, and seasonings, then cooked in the oven. The result was a very flavorful, creamy dish that has been a favorite of families everywhere.
