Broccoli Amandine Casserole

Recipe by Margaret3

You can tell this recipe has been around a long time--from when cooks had lots of time and nobody worried about calories or cholesterol! From "River Road," a staple of Louisiana cooking. Traditional holiday veggie on our table, calories or not! Wonderful leftover.

I used cheddar on top & 2 bunches of broccoli - there was plenty of sauce. I would probably reduce the amount of lemon juice next time but the dish was enjoyed by all (including the grandchildren) at Easter dinner. Thanx Margaret!!
