Lots of taste, but low in calories. Melange is French for mixture! It is not quite a casserole, but could certainly be done as one. Would be good for a potluck in a nice casserole dish.

  • 1 cauliflower (about 1 and 1/2 pounds)
  • 12 Brussel Sprouts (or more)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 8 oz. crabmeat
  • 1 Tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning


  1. Break cauliflower in large flowerettes. Clean Brussel Sprouts, removing any leaves that aren't good. Cut off the ends and make an "x" in each end with a knife (helps then cook better).
  2. Cook them in lightly salted water for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Drain and keep warm.
  4. Melt butter in a pan, and stir in flour.
  5. Gradually add milk, and cook, stirring until thickened.
  6. Simmer about 5 minutes, add the crabmeat, and season with pepper and Old Bay.
  7. Arrange vegetables on a hot platter, and pour crab sauce over them.
  8. Sprinkle more Old Bay Seasoning on top.

    It seems to be from French mélange which translates as mixture. All I know is that it was delicious! I do use canned milk in the recipe, but whatever you are used to using would be fine.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      Wow! This would make a great recipe for Lent. I am not sure what a melange is, however any thing with crab meat has to be good right?

        It is from the French, mélange which means "mixture." It is very delicious. I do generally use evaporated (canned) milk in it, but whatever you are used to would be fine. Enjoy!
