Broccoli Casserole

My kids like plain steamed broccoli. I know. Strange children. However, tonight we are having broccoli casserole. This violates their sensibility but some day I hope to bring them over to the casserole dark side.

This is from my grandmother’s recipe box. Yes, you can cut the mayo down and the eggs. I use only 1 can of cream of mushroom and skip the butter topping. Somehow I feel a little virtuous doing these things…but on the other hand Nini’s tasted better.

Broccoli Casserole

2 cups chopped broccoli
1 onion, chopped
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
4 eggs
2 small cans mushroom soup
salt and pepper

Mix and cook at 350 until bubbles. Top with butter and bread crumbs. Brown 5-10 min.


  1. ugh I hate broccoli casserole. OK hate is a strong word. I don’t like it. But I’ll eat it.

  2. Eh, you haven’t eaten anything this week.

  3. I did eat mac & cheese on Monday but regretted it shortly afterwards.

    And, the recipe you made last night – which is not this particular recipe – was surprisingly good. I had seconds. I only regretted that once I was doing the dishes and discovered there was mayo in it. I hate cooking with mayo.
