Broccoli Casserole is the perfect way to sneak vegetables into dinner. This dish is creamy and flavorful, and my favorite part, cheesy. One of the things I love best about this recipe, is that you can really play with the ingredients. Your not going to make any major mistakes if you decide to add a little something extra to it. This allows you to really make Broccoli Casserole Recipe your own.
For this recipe, I suggest using frozen chopped broccoli because it mixes in really well with the rest of the ingredients. It is also really great if you are trying to get picky eaters to get their veggies without totally knowing that they are in there. However, you can use broccoli cuts or larger pieces of broccoli if you wish.
My favorite alteration to this recipe is the amount of cheese involved. I love cheese, and all things cheesy. When I make Broccoli Casserole, I almost double the amount of cheese called for in the recipe. It depends on my mood, but I certainly add cheese until I think it looks like enough. So go ahead, and put more cheese in if you would like.
This Broccoli Casserole recipe makes a lot, so it is perfect for holiday meals. You can always find it on the table at our family holiday dinners!
