Ingredients
  • 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)
Instructions
  1. 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.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine broccoli, soup, lightly beaten eggs, melted butter, onion, salt, pepper, mayo, and sour cream. Mix well.

  3. Add a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and mix well.

  4. Transfer to a large greased baking dish and cook, uncovered, for about 30 minutes.

  5. Remove the casserole from the oven, add about 1/2 cup cheddar cheese on top along with some fried onions.

  6. Put the casserole back into the oven and continue cooking until the top cheese is melted (for about 10 minutes).
