I got this recipe from my cousin Lisa, but there is an (unrelated) amusing story that comes with it. When I was in college, my roommate's boyfriend HATED broccoli, until he tried this casserole. I gave the recipe to my roommate, who passed it on to his mom. When his family came down for graduation, his mom gave me a big hug and thanked me for finding a way to get her son to eat broccoli! Note: I've also made this into a complete meal by adding leftover cooked chicken to the broccoli mixture before baking.
I received this recipe in on of my daily e-mails from our local vegetable producer. I made it for a big group and it was so yummy that I had to share it. It has the cheesiness that most enjoy on cauliflower but with a bit of kick too.
This side dish, from my sister-in-law Mary, is addictive and couldn't be simpler to make. Even folks who normally don't like broccoli love this casserole. This makes an easy, tasty veggie dish to take to a pot luck.
This is an awesome low-carb version of loaded baked potatoes, and tastes far better than any version of mock potatoes that I have tried. In fact, this dish is soooo good, you will not believe it! I do not remember where I got this recipe, but it is a fabulous side to any low-carb meal. You will be pleased, I promise! Yum! Yum!
