Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Recipe by  

"My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together condensed soup, mayonnaise, egg and onions.
  3. Place frozen broccoli into a very large mixing bowl. (I like to use my large stainless steel bowl to mix this recipe thoroughly.) Break up the frozen broccoli. Using a rubber spatula, scrape soup-mayonnaise mixture on top of broccoli, and mix well. Sprinkle on cheese, and mix well. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish, and smooth top of casserole. Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

I have been making this recipe for years but I do it a little differently - and ALWAYS get requests... 2 eggs beaten, 1 cup melted margarine, 1 cup HELLMAN's (not miracle whip) mayonnaise, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, 2 Tbsp chopped onion, 2 pkgs. frozen chopped broccoli, 1 small bag pepperidge farm stuffing mix. Cook & drain broccoli, mix everything else together (except stuffing mix), pour into greased casserole and top w/stuffing mix. Bake 350 for one hour. It is very important that you use real, full-fat ingredients such as mayonnaise and margarine. Otherwise it doesn't come out right. Also best when cools for at least 30 minutes before serving.

This recipe deserves an update. I am making this dish once again for Christmas because it is the most requested recipe that I own. It is the best broccoli recipe I have found so far. I add a butter and club cracker crumb mixture on the top before I bake it. It is scrumptous. I highly recommend that you try this.

Although I made adjustments, this was an absolutely fabulous meal! We all loved it, really!! I don't know why anyone would give it bad ratings unless they didn't like broccoli or cheese :) I took some of the other reviewer's advice, and instead of 1 c mayo, I did 1/2 c mayo and 1/2 sour cream. I also added 1/2 c more shredded cheese. The funny part was I discovered I only had a 16 oz pkg of broccoli florets (calls for 30 oz cut); so I used that along with another package of frozen veggie mix - of broccoli, pearl onions, and peppers; not realizing that this package added an awesome kick to the meal! I really lucked out. Anyway, like another person, I mixed the concoction together w/the cheese, then at the end mixed it with the veggies. I sprinkled a little shredded cheddar on top, then added mozarella slices - which again, out of sheer luck worked out perfectly!! My family really loved this meal. It's a KEEPER! Thanks for contributing!

This is a recipe that is a family staple for all of our holidays. I misplaced my recipe and was thankful to find it here. However, the preparation for our recipe is different, and it does make a difference in the finished dish. Some of the ingredients are a tad different as well. First, we blanch and drain the broccoli. I think leaving out this step is why some of your dishes are coming out runny, it also makes the color appearance much better. Also, we use slightly less mayo, about 3/4 cup, more cheese (12 oz or 3 cups) and no salt or pepper. There is enough salt already in the soup. Also, we mix the broccoli into the soup mixture. Bake 45 minutes, and then top with finely smashed cheese crackers and return to oven for another 15 minutes or until cheese cracker crust is brown. It is awesome!

This is the best broccoli cheese casserole I have ever tasted. My husbands family is big on broccoli cheese casserole, but this beat their usual great tasting casserole. It was a hit at Christmas. I used the suggestion of 1/2 c. mayo and 1/2 c. sour cream and extra cheese. I also omitted the added salt and pepper and it was great! The condensed soups and cheese have a salty enough flavor that no extra was needed.Thanks for this recipe, I will pass it on.

This recipe was definitely good just the way it is written. My whole family loves it. It may not be gourmet, but it's delicious. Why does everyone rate it when they're changing so many things in it?

May 05, 2003

With a few changes this could be a great recipe! Next time I will do 1/2 cup mayo, and a 1/2 cup sour cream and add 1/2 cup more cheese. Definitely a great "starter" recipe to make your own!
