Mom's Broccoli Casserole
You know how everyone has their favorite meals that they grew up around? Well, I am fortunate to have many great cooks in my family, so I have many :) However, this is one of my Mom's favorite things that she made. It can be made with just broccoli, or you can add chicken if you want. Both are amazing! For this past weekend, there was a potluck and this was one of the dishes I made. Enjoy! Ingredients 2 bags of frozen broccoli florets (I use the kind you can steam in the microwave) 1 beaten egg 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (plus shredded cheddar cheese to top with later) 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion 1 can cream of chicken soup 1 can cream of mushroom soup (can use another can of chicken soup if preferred instead) Splash of chicken broth (optional) 1/2 cup bread crumbs (plus more for topping later) 1/2 cup sour cream (as desired) salt and pepper (few shakes of each)
Steam broccoli and drain. I also cut up the florets into smaller pieces if necessary. Mix together all remaining ingredients (except the additional bread crumbs and additional cheese for topping). Spread mixture into a baking dish and top with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. Take out the casserole and top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Note: If making the chicken broccoli casserole, boil the chicken in water with salt and pepper and shred when cooled. Add to the mixture. Pulling apart a rotisserie chicken (without the skin) also works.
