Broccoli Cheese Bake

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Leslie A. 4

"This is a great casserole that I threw together one day when a friend requested Broccoli au Gratin for her birthday dinner. This is a great idea for those who aren't big fans of bread crumbs. Also, the eggs can be taken out for a great sauce and using skim milk and fat-free cheese works well, too. It's basically a great recipe that can be easily altered according to taste. Enjoy!"

Was slightly bland. If I were to ever make this again I would had a thin quiche crust to the bottom. The broccolli and cheese are a nice mix but something is missing...

Fantastic! I don't use canned soups in recipes when I can avoid it (too much sodium and can't stand those preservatives and such) so this is a PERFECT recipe that you can make the healthy way f...

add garlic power and cheddar cheese instead of swiss.

This was tasty. If you follow the directions you get a wonderful cream sauce. After baking it I found the texture of the cheesy mix to be a little like cottage cheese, I think this could be avoi...

Excellent recipe!! I cut it in half and made it low-fat (used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, fat-free cheese & skim milk) and it was STILL delicious! Thanks so much!

Very good, if you like swiss. I steamed the broc. in the microwave...worked out fine, Scaled the recipe down to serve 4 and followed the recipe exactly. Very yummy!

The flavor was delicious especially with the swiss cheese. I used frozen flowerets to make it easier and everyone loved it. I will make this recipe again.

This was good. We had no leftovers.. I did cook 1 cup of rice in the rice cooker and added the rice in the dish. I also didn't use as much butter as it called for. I loved that this was made wit...

I really like to take this to carry-ins. It's relatively simple and people seem to love it. I use sharp cheddar cheese instead of swiss. I also mix it up the night before, throw in frozen bro...
