"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!" — Leslie A.

shredded Swiss cheese
I love this recipe! I did make a few modifications. Instead of swiss cheese, I used authentic gruyere. I substituted a few shallots for the onion, and added 1 tsp. of nutmeg to the sauce. I found it slightly on the saucy side, as opposed to firm, so I think next time I will add another couple of eggs. However, the basic structure of the recipe is wonderful - it lends itself perfectly to any adaptation. I prepared it the night before and put it in the fridge, and took it out half an hour before I baked it. My guests absolutely raved over it - I served it with a brunch, but it would go well with any meal.
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 for your family! Delicious and easy, too!
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 avoided by letting the dish cool for a couple minutes before serving.
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.
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.
