Ingredients Nutrition

This was very good and I am forever changed from using frozen broccoli now and I thank you for that. However, it had too much salt and pepper for my liken. I did use sharp cheddar which I feel is a must. I also added 1/4 cup mayo (another must). I was shocked when I went to make it and the mayo wasn't part of it. I had only skimmed through this recipe when I ran to the store, which caused me to buy both croutons and goldfish. I realized the need for only one and opted for the croutons, which I am very glad I did. As I am sitting here now eating leftover Broccoli Casserole , the lost star is for the salt and pepper only. Thank you so much Chef Sunshine for a new recipe for broccoli and cheese casserole in my home.

Sunshine!! This was delicious!! I used Cheez-its for the top of casserole and used Dry Cream of Soup Mix - Substitute and added mushrooms to the soup. It turned out fanastic! Thanks for sharing your family's recipe!

This was great! So cheesy and the broccoli tasted just right. I used crushed goldfish crakers as a topping as I baked this casserole in the oven. I also added extra layers of shredded cheese on top of the broccoli and sauce mixture, so the cheese was mixed all through the broccoli. Cheese, broccoli, toasted goldfish crackers...what a great idea! Thansk for yet another awesome posting, Sunshine!
