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.
