Had this recipe for years, not sure of it's origin. Every occasion I have used it for, it's always been a success and I always get asked for the recipe!!
- 2 packages chopped broccoli, cooked 5 minutes and drained (I like to use frozen broccoli spears instead.)
- 1 can cream of celery soup or 1 can cream of chicken soup or 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1 cup grated cheese
- 1 small onion, grated
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- pepper, to taste
- Put broccoli into baking dish.
- Mix other ingredients.
- Pour mix over broccoli and sprinkle with a little cornbread topping or muffin mix.
- (I have also used crunched up stuffing mix.) Top with cheese.
- (You can use parmesan, cheddar, or swiss, etc, whatever you like.) Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
- Recipe easily doubled.
This was delicious. I have to eat soy and gluten free so here are my adjustments and it was a delicious soy and gluten-free broccoli casserole. 1) mayo-I used Hain Safflower mayo 2) for the topping under the cheese, I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten-free cornbread mix. Other adjustments-1) used just under 1/4 cup minced onion (to save time) 2) used 2 large stalks of fresh steamed broccoli 3) for the grated cheese I used 4C 100% natural Homestyle Parmesan-Romano That's it. Absolutely loved it! Thanks
This is pretty much like my momma's broccoli casserole that I have now been making for years for my friends and family, and I'm always asked for the recipe. Instead of using mayo, her recipe calls for cream of chicken soup, sour cream and buttered Ritz crackers. *To the poster who used cauliflower instead of broccoli...I never thought of it, but I bet it's wonderful and will give it a go. Revised to add that I also use this same recipe to make an excellent and highly requested squash casserole as well. Just make sure you drain and squeeze out the excess water from the squash before adding it to the other ingredients.
Great recipe! I used cream of celery, turned out perfect. Topped with Ritz crackers/butter. Yum!
