This easy, cheesy Broccoli Casserole makes the best easy side dish for any occasion
Hey readers, this is Lauren visiting again from Tastes Better From Scratch and I’m excited to share one of my favorite comforting holiday side dishes with you.
This past week I did a demonstration on how to cook a Thanksgiving Turkey and ever since, I’ve got Thanksgiving on the mind!
Growing up, my mom always hosted our huge extended family for Thanksgiving. We could always expect 50-65 people so there was lots to do to prepare. Those busy mornings are some of my best memories cooking with my mom. She’d let me prep the turkey, make our favorite homemade rolls, sweet potato souffle, and two of my favorite lemon pies. My aunt would always bring this Broccoli Casserole and it was always a hit! Broccoli baked in a creamy sauce and topped with cheese crackers. Forget the bean casserole–this one has my vote!
Recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch
6 cups fresh broccoli florets (about 2 bunches)
1 can cream mushroom soup or homemade
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp dried minced onions
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed cheese crackers
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Boil broccoli for 2 minutes. Drain well. In a large mixing bowl combine mushroom soup, mayonnaise, eggs, onions and shredded cheese and mix well. Pour over broccoli and toss to combine. Pour into greased casserole dish. Sprinkle crushed cheese crackers on top. Bake at 400 degrees F for 40-45 minutes.
