Broccoli Casserole

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Broccoli Casserole

When it comes to vegetables to go with dinner, I tend to go with a few standard dishes that require little work or effort. Like frozen veggies, roasted veggies or a simple salad. So when I come across a vegetable dish that is easy, delicious and different from one of my standards I am always happy and so is my family.

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Broccoli Casserole

Broccoli Casserole
2 pounds fresh broccoli
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup chopped onion
1- 8 ounce container chive and onion cream cheese
1- 10 3/4 ounce can cream of mushroom soup

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Cut broccoli into pieces roughly the same size leaving about a 2 inch stem. Place in the prepared baking dish and add enough water to cover the bottom, about 1/2 an inch. Cover and stem in the microwave for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli turns bright green. Carefully pour out the water.

In a small skillet melt butter. Add in onion and cook until soft. Pour over broccoli.

In a small saucepan, combine cream cheese and soup. Cook over low heat until smooth. Pour over broccoli leaving some showing. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
