Aunt Millie's Broccoli CasseroleI wanted this to be more of a main dish rather than a side, so I added some cubed up cooked chicken, I used a bag of frozen broccoli, and also a bag of frozen mixed veggies. I doubled the recipe and didnt have croutons so I added some bread crumbs on top.
Recipe adapted from a recipe found at AllRecipes
- 4 heads fresh broccoli, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups shredded American cheese
- 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups crushed, seasoned croutons
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook broccoli in the boiling water for 1 minute. Drain, and set aside.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, mix the cheese, cream of mushroom soup, salt, and pepper. Stir until cheese is melted. Add the broccoli, stirring to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- In a separate saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Mix in the croutons, and sprinkle over the broccoli mixture.
- Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until the topping is browned and broccoli is tender.
