Then try my husband's Broccoli & Cheese Casserole recipe for a different spin on broccoli.
Ed introduced me to his casserole at a family Thanksgiving dinner years ago. It was a big hit with my family. It then became a tradition every Thanksgiving and even at some Christmas dinners.
The other night, Ed made a beautiful roast. I was tring to think of something different for the vegetable and suggested a Broccoli Casserole. Ed said "what about my recipe?" and I said "good idea." However, this time, I was going to be making it. I found his recipe card, looked it over and said "Geez, even I can do this!"
Hereis what you will need:
1 16oz package frozen broccoli--cooked and chopped
2 cans cream soup (broccoli, chicken, mushroom, etc)
2 cups mayonaise
2 cups shredded cheese
4 tablespoons instant onions
4 eggs (well-beaten)
Cook broccoli, then chop. I cheated by using a package of frozen chopped broccoli. Hey anything to make life easier. Put cooked broccoli in a large mixing bowl.
In a another bowl, empty out the 2 cans of cream soup. Mix well.
Here is where I got creative. I only had one can of Cream of Broccoli soup, and I really didn't want to go to the store, so I used the one can of Cream of Broccoli and one can of Cream of Chicken soup.
Add 2 cups of mayo. Mix well. I used "Light" mayo without any problems.
Beat 4 eggs very well and mix with soup and mayo mixture.
Add 4 tablespoons instant onions.
Mix in two cups of shredded cheese. You can use any cheese that you like. I used Cheddar and Motzerella.
Add the mixture tothe broccoli and mix lightly.
Put the broccoli mixture in a casserole dish or a 13x9x2 baking dish. (no need to grease or spray pan)
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until top is crusty brown.
Eat and enjoy!
