Broccoli Casserole is one of my favorite side dishes from childhood. My Mom handed down the recipe to me years ago, and it is also a favorite side dish with my family today. It is great served alongside of chicken or turkey, and we actually will serve it with other vegetable sides for a meat free dinner. KID FRIENDLY!
2 packages frozen chopped broccoli
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup (I use an organic one from Earthfare)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons minced onion
1 cup grated 2 % cheddar cheese
salt & pepper to taste
breadcrumbs *keep to the side
3 tablespoons butter *keep to the side
1. Cook broccoli & drain
2. Mix all ingredients (except for breadcrumbs and 3 tablespoons butter) and place in a lightly greased (I use butter) 8×8 glass casserole dish.
3. Top with breadcrumbs (I use Trader Joe’s Organic Breadcrumbs or Ian’s Original Style)
4. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter and drizzle evenly over breadcrumbs
5. Bake at 350 covered for 25 minutes and 15 minutes uncovered until breadcrumbs start to brown.
