  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. To prepare the cheese sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix in milk, and stir constantly until thickened. Mix in Cheddar cheese and Swiss cheese, and continue to stir until smooth. Reduce heat to low.
  3. Layer potatoes in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Layer onion and ham over potatoes. Top with cauliflower. Cover with the cheese sauce.
  4. Bake covered 1 hour in the preheated oven. Remove cover, sprinkle with crushed cornflakes, and continue baking 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender and surface is bubbly and lightly browned. Allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.

A really great side dish(no ham). We loved the flavour, added a little cayene to the cheese sauce to zing it up a touch. Will make this again and again.

My family loved this cheesy casserole! The Swiss Cheddar Sauce is great! I have made this 3 times with great results!

I also had trouble getting the potatoes to cook completely. Even after an extra 20 minutes cooking. The flavor wasn't bad, but instead of cornflakes usted french fried onions. I think they ad...

very good
