Broccoli Casserole

Pinit

Hello everyone! I hope you have had a wonderful beginning to 2013. Herb and I celebrated the New Year by taking a week long trip to Maine! We got to explore Portland and the surrounding areas, as well as go skiing and snowmobiling!

Now it’s time to go back to work! We are excited about the New Year and all the new opportunities we have.

Today I’m going to share one of our favorite side dishes. This is great for pot luck dinners, parties, or just as a side dish for your family meal. It’s very simple: with only a few short steps required before you pop it in the oven. I recently brought this to my best friend’s house for a ladies night get together, and it was quite a hit! In fact, one lovely lady told me it was the best broccoli casserole she’d ever eaten!

Without further ado…

Broccoli Casserole

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 (10-oz) packages frozen chopped broccoli (or 4 cups fresh chopped broccoli)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 cup crumbled Ritz crackers (or other crackers!)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

Recipe Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cook and drain your broccoli. (I used my shortcut of microwaveable steam-in-the-bag broccoli.)

In a mixing bowl, combine soup, egg, mayonnaise, cheese, and onion powder.

Then stir in the chopped, cooked broccoli and mix well.

Add mixture to the greased casserole dish (I used a 2-qt round dish, but a smaller one would’ve worked).

Melt the butter in a small bowl, then combine with the cracker crumbs. Sprinkle this over top of the casserole.

  1. Yum – this looks delicious AND easy! Do you think I could replace the mayo with Greek yogurt and get the same flavor?

    Becky,

    I think that’d work just fine! Especially since it’s only 1/4 cup. I think the mayo in this is more for the creaminess than flavor, so I think it’d be worth it to try the Greek yogurt. Great idea!
