Found this recipe in a Paula Deen Magazine and using Gruyere cheese, sour cream, fresh mushrooms and panko it's just enough differant that I want to save it until I can give it a try. I think it'd make a nice, impressive side for a company dinner. As an update - finally got around to making this and it was even better than I thought. I used one of those bags of a combination of broccoli and Cauliflower and it even had baby carrots in it which made for some pretty color. Pretty easy to put together and EVERYONE at the party asked for the recipe. Unfortunatly it was gone before I was even able to take a picture, but will just have to make again just for that.

Love this!! Was asked three years ago to make a broccoli casserole for Thanksgiving, and didn't want to make just an ordinary one. Found this recipe and made it. Now it's what I make. Everyone loves it - no complaints :) My only complaint is that there aren't any leftovers for me to bring home!!
This is a very nice casserole! Lots of flavor. I had to leave out the mushrooms because of a finicky guest, but next time I will include them for just us. :) I am going to try it with the added carrots, too. This was a nice lower-carb alternative to baked potato with a grilled steak. The panko adds a great texture to the dish. I cut the recipe in half to serve 4 with no problem. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
