Inside The Kitchen: Broccoli Cheese Casserole

I always make a ‘Thanksgiving dinner’ the day after the holiday just for my family of 4. I LOVE having left overs. I didn’t go too crazy this year, but what I made was aw-esome! I found this recipe for Broccoli Cheese casserole and then made some adjustments.

  • 2 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 can of French’s® French Fried Onions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13 by 9-inch baking dish with vegetable oil cooking spray.

I used frozen broccoli – so I had to cook it through a bit. Not all the way, but enough to warm it up.

In a large mixing bowl, combine  mayonnaise, cheese, soup and eggs. Mix well with a metal spoon.

Then add broccoli one spoon at a time and mix. Place the mixture in the prepared baking dish.

Top with fried onions. Bake for 35 minutes or until set and browned.

AND SERVE!! I am telling you this was awesome and a nice change from the string beans version. To check out more of my recipes, visit my ‘Inside the Kitchen‘ section.

  1. Wow, the finished product looks yummmm! Vera, must it be mixed with a metal spoon as you mentioned? If so, do you know the reason? Of COURSE, I have wooden spoons and nice Kitchen Aid plasticky spoons, but no metal spoons. 🙂

    1. lol – i don’t know why i wrote that??? maybe i thought the egg shouldn’t touch the wood? whatever spoon will do! 🙂

      1. Cool! Lol – it seemed legit to me! I’ve made silk wrapped easter eggs and they specify the type of pot you must boil them in, so I thought maybe there was some kind of reaction w/your casserole. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know!

  2. Good to know about the fried onions. We made this for Thanksgiving but the onions would have made it so much more crunchy and good!

  3. I would love to have your receipe broccoli and cheese casserole but I dont know how to print it off your site. Could you email it to me please.
