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.
