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.
