This post and Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole recipe is brought to you by Dixie. All opinions are our own.


This Thanksgiving, stop washing so many dirty dishes and start spending more time with your family! That’s what I’ve vowed to do! While Thanksgiving just passed here in Canada, the big turkey meal is only the start of the festivities. Our calendar is filled with holiday dinner parties over the next two months. I’ll be hosting at least a couple myself! I can’t wait for my guests to try the delicious Broccoli Cauliflower Casserole from Dixie!

My Thanksgiving Promise: Stop washing dirty dishes and spend more time with family


The makers of Dixie Ultra® Tableware invite everyone to make a Thanksgiving Promise. I chose to stop washing dirty dishes and start spending more time with family. Why? Because when I get caught up in the clean-up, I miss out on some great conversation!

Who wants to spend their holiday scrubbing dishes anyway, right? So how can I accomplish such a feat without spending hours scraping off set-on food later? With Dixie Ultra® Tableware! They have such attractive plates and bowls, so I don’t feel like I’m skimping by using them. Plus they’re super strong for those guests who really love to pile on the gravy!

  3. Sounds great. My kids wouldn’t touch it, but would be good for my husband and myself :) The kids don’t like their foods to touch lol

  4. Oh my gosh, My friend made this for me a couple of months ago and been wanting to know how to make it myself! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. My toddler loves Broccoli but doesn’t eat Cauliflower. I wonder if she’ll like this if I make it. Great recipe.

  6. Sounds like another yummy veggie dish. I recently started buying cauliflower. Tested it out since the kids enjoy broccoli so much. It’s a hit here!

  7. These are my husband’s two least favourite vegetables (and carrots). But I love them. Thanks so much for the great recipe! I’m going to make this and hope he likes it. With the additional flavours in this recipe, I’m sure he will.
