  • 6 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1.5 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (divided)
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) canned mushroom soup
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 3 ounces store-bought french fried onion (use more or less according to your liking)


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook, uncovered, for just 1 minute. Turn off the heat, drain into a colander and immediately place the broccoli in the ice bath to stop the cooking process for 30 seconds. Drain the broccoli again in the colander.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, soup, lightly beaten eggs, melted butter, onion, salt, pepper, mayo, and sour cream. Mix well.
  • Add a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and mix well.
  • Transfer to a large greased baking dish and cook, uncovered, for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the casserole from the oven, add about 1/2 cup cheddar cheese on top along with some fried onions.
  • Put the casserole back into the oven and continue cooking until the top cheese is melted (for about 10 minutes).
