Broccoli Almond Casserole

"This is a family favorite that MUST be at every kind of 'roast' something dinner. It is very rich tasting and what we all consider comfort food. I'm not sure where this originated from, just very thankful to have it. You can use 7oz cheez whiz in place of the shredded cheddar, but I don't like it as much. You can also omit the cheese entirely if you want. I once did that by accident and it tasted just fine."

  1. I made this for Thanksgiving because it was the same ingredients as a wonderful T-day broccoli casserole I made for years...except for bread cubes. What do the bread cubes add to the vegetable dish? I rate my baked casserole 3 because I didn't get the right texture. My old recipe, which I surprisingly cannot find, included crumbled bacon.


I'm teased by my husband, children and sister in laws because I'm fussy, and my (super fussy)mother's daughter, therefore I'm known as a food snob- really I just like good food and don't like to use too many prepackaged, fast food type ingredients. If I can make it from scratch, I like to at least try. I like to search out the 'best' (completely subjective ;) version of a recipe to be found.If I have to eat it, I figure it might as well taste awesome otherwise how else can I justify the extra 30lbs?
