I didn't read through all 42 other reviews, but this is a keeper! My grandma actually taught this to me--it was my first real recipe, as a 4th grader I think. Anyway, I've never cooked the soup and cheese. And, I've actually found over the years that it's better to just thaw and drain the broccoli first--not to cook it either. It retains more taste and texture. So we just throw the thawed broccoli cuts in a bowl with the soup and cheese, mix, and dump it in the casserole. Cuts the prep time to nothin', and the results are just as good! I also only use about 1/4 c. melted butter on top--and sometimes sub Ritz for fresh breadcrumbs. Thanks for sharing!
Loved it! I didn't have mushroom soup so combined milk, butter, flour, salt, paprika and onion powder. I used the cheese I had at hand, which was shredded mozarella and a combination of shredded Mexican cheeses. Also used two heads of fresh broccoli, steamed. Thank you so much for the recipe!
I read some of the reviews and thought I would serve this as a side dish for our Thanksgiving dinner, I wish I would I would have tried it out first before serving it to guests, what a big disappointment, thank god I had another side vegetable.
A definite keeper. Most broccoli casseroles use Velveeta...I like that this one uses real cheese. Simple ingredients, yet very good!
Not only did my husband and I think this was delicious (and super easy), but my toddler son could eat an entire bowl full of this! Thanks for sharing!
I made this for Thanksgiving as a change from the green bean casserole. We loved it. After reading other reviews, I cut the margarine to 1/4 c and the breadcrumbs down to about 2/3 c. I will definitely made this again. Thank you for posting!
Made this tonight, just finished eating it...or rather, not eating it. The flavor probably would have been great, if it weren't for the overpowering flavor of the breadcrumbs which were not good. They are breadcrumbs I use in many other recipes so it shouldn't have been a problem. Also, the recipe said Mushroom soup, but I couldn't find any, so I used a can of Cream of Mushroom soup, and about 1/4 cup of water. I think it turned out well, just the breadcrumbs ruined it and wasted all the broccoli that I had left.
Amazing taste! Great, different use of broccoli....I do agree with the others that there was too much butter. I only used 1/2 cup and it still was way too much. I also used reduced fat chedder cheese which was great and that too I used only 1 cup. Next time I will use less butter or put french fried onion rings....however very very good and I will make again.
Simple, tasty side dish. I tried this recipe the other night and we loved it. Thank you for a family favorite.
Was good but way too much butter in the topping. Next time I will half the bread crumbs and only use a third of the butter. The broccoli and cheese sauce were 5 stars though!
