Broccoli Casserole

Posted November 19, 2007 11:34 a.m. EST

This is a family favorite at my grandmother’s for Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t love a casserole? To change the recipe up a little, you can add 6 chicken thighs, cooked and chopped and use cream of chicken soup to turn it into a main dish.


2 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
2 cans cream of broccoli soup
2/3-cup mayonnaise
½ teaspoon lemon juice
2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
 ¾ cup breadcrumbs

Directions: Steam the broccoli in 6 Tablespoons of water for 5 minutes in the microwave. Drain the broccoli and place it in a 9 X 13 casserole dish. Mix the soup, mayonnaise and lemon juice together and spread over the broccoli. Sprinkle the cheese and breadcrumbs over the soup mixture. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
