DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a 2 or 3-quart casserole dish.
  • Cook the broccoli florets in boiling water until just tender; drain very well, then place on paper towels to dry further.
  • Melt butter in a medium heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat; add in the onions, garlic and cayenne, saute until tender (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Add in flour whisking constantly until mixture thickens (about 2 minutes, do not brown the flour, if the mixture is too thick just add in more cream to thin out).
  • Slowly add in half and half cream or full-fat milk, whisking constantly until the mixture begins to thicken.
  • Add in cheddar cheese and sour cream; stir until the cheese melts (do not boil).
  • Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Add in broccoli florets, ham and mushrooms into the cheese mixture; mix to combine.
  • Transfer to prepared casserole dish.
  • In a small bowl mix together the breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese (if using) and melted butter until combined; sprinkle on top of casserole.
  • Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes.
  • Delicious!
