This tasty broccoli casserole is the perfect side dish for a holiday dinner or everday family meal.

Ingredients:

  • 10 to 12 ounces frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half or light cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar (6 ounces)
  • 3 large eggs, beaten

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 2 1/2-quart casserole. Arrange the cooked and drained broccoli in the casserole.

Heat the butter in a large skillet; add onion and sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes, until onion is tender. Stir in flour until well blended and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the pepper, nutmeg, salt, and half-and-half. Continue cooking over low heat until thickened. Stir in cheese and cook just until cheese is melted. Add about 1/3 of the hot mixture to the beaten eggs; add back to the hot mixture, blending well. Pour over the broccoli. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center of the broccoli casserole comes out clean.
Serves 6.

Absolutely wonderful, Member KathVT

I've made this ""pudding"" several times and have also passed the recipe on to friends who have raved about it. We absolutely love it! I brought one to a pot luck dinner and there was another broccoli ""casserole"" there - mine was gone in minutes! One recommendation is to have all ingredients measured, prepared and ready to go. And on the rare occassion where there are leftovers - it's great for breakfast.
