Broccoli and Cheese Sauce Baked in a Pocket

Total Time

You will need a large heavy-duty foil for this recipe, add in some canned drained mushrooms too if desired. If you prefer the cheese sauce with a zip then use cayenne pepper in place of the black pepper. I have even made this on my outdoor grill many times.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 450°F.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet and a piece of heavy-duty foil about 24x12-inches, then spray the inside of the foil with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Place the broccoli in the center of the foil.
  4. Fold up the foil slightly to create a "pan".
  5. In a bowl combine the undiluted soup, bell pepper, onion, half-and-half, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper; mix well to combine.
  6. Add/stir in grated cheddar cheese; mix to combine.
  7. Pour the cheese mixture over broccoli.
  8. Fold up the sides and ends of the foil to seal packet, leaving head space for heat circulation.
  9. Cut a small slit on the top of the foil to allow steam to escape.
  10. Place the packet on a baking sheet.
  11. Bake in oven (or place on an outdoor grill) for about 25-35 minutes or until the veggies are crisp-tender.

This was delicious!! Baked for 28 minutes which seemed to be perfect. The red pepper was nice for colour, but not completely necessary. If I didnt have a pepper on hand, Id just make it without.

I really liked the combination of red bell pepper and broccoli along with the onions and cheese. This would be great with Campbell's Nacho Cheese soup for a little heat. Thank you for sharing.

This was REALLY good. I had to substitute a few market was all out of plain Cheddar Cheese soup, so I subbed Broccoli Cheese soup. I also subbed minced onion for fresh, because I was pressed for time. It was delicious. There was just a tiny amount of leftovers, that I'm looking forward to finish for lunch today. I served it over jasmine rice and with a crispy, fried fish. JUST PERFECT! Thanks for posting.
