I love broccoli. I love it raw, steamed, in salads, casseroles, stir frys, garlic sauce...it’s just delicious, plain and simple. When I am at a salad bar, buffet, or potluck, I can assure you that I am looking for anything with broccoli. A creamy, cheesy casserole is the perfect way to enjoy this venerable vegetable and this recipe is a classic example of what a casserole should be.
Ingredients: chopped frozen broccoli, grated sharp cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, beaten eggs, cream of mushroom soup, grated onion, buttered bread crumbs
Step One: cook broccoli according to directions. Drain.
Step Two: add cheese, eggs, mayonnaise, soup, and onion. Combine well. (I must admit that I have never grated an onion before. Since I already I had the grater out to prepare the cheese - I prefer to grate my own cheese when I have the time - I jumped in and grated an onion. It was easier than I thought, and blended into the dish well.)
Step Three: pour into a 2 quart baking dish and top with bread crumbs.
Step Four: bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
