Recipe type: Vegetable
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 500 grams (1 pound) frozen mixed vegetables
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon mixed dry herbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ block cream cheese softened and cut into chunks
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup French fried onions
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F
  2. Steam the vegetables according to the package recommendations. They only need to be thawed to work in this recipe. Then place in a casserole dish.
  1. Add oil to a skillet and cook the onion until it's translucent, you don't want any color,
  2. Add the butter and when it's fully melted, toss in the flour and stir to cook the flour for a minute or so.
  3. While whisking, add the milk and whisk until the sauce thickens.
  4. Add the cream cheese and the cheddar cheese (reserve a bit of cheddar for the top) and stir until smooth.
  5. Mix in the herbs and then pour over the vegetables. Sprinkle with the reserved grated cheddar and then into the oven for 25 minutes. It should be golden brown.
  6. Add the French fried onions and bake for only five more minutes. Seriously - only five minutes.
