One good broccoli and cheese casserole recipe, which is even called Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole, comes from Allrecipes. It has received hundreds of positive reviewers from home cooks who have tried it. There are only nine ingredients necessary to create this dish, which serves eight people.
To make this recipe, the following ingredients are mixed together in a medium bowl: one can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, one cup of mayonnaise, one egg and 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion. Then, three 10-ounce packages of frozen broccoli are placed inside a large mixing bowl and broken up with hands or a kitchen utensil to separate.
The mixture from the first bowl is then poured over the frozen broccoli and mixed to coat. Eight ounces of shredded sharp cheddar cheese are introduced to the mix and stirred in. After this, the contents of the bowl are spread as evenly as possible into the baking dish. The top is sprinkled with salt, pepper and paprika to taste.
The casserole is baked for 45 minutes to an hour in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It is allowed to cool just slightly, then served. Many reviewers remarked on how easy this recipe is to prepare and others suggested adding things such as mushrooms or croutons for additional flavor.
