Alright guys, this Broccoli Casserole is one of my all-time favorite side dishes. My grandma used to make it for every holiday along with her coconut cake and I always looked forward to it. It’s such a simple recipe all you need is condensed cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, broccoli, and cheese. That’s it! And, even better, you can make this Broccoli Casserole ahead of time so it is perfect for the holidays!

How to Make Broccoli Casserole:

STEP 1: To make the casserole the first thing you do is cut up two heads of broccoli. I like to use broccoli spears because it makes a pretty presentation, and that’s how my grandma did it, but you can use crowns if you prefer. Boil or steam the broccoli until it has softened (but is still slightly firm) then run it under cold water to stop the cooking process. Strain and dry the broccoli slightly before laying the spears in a casserole dish with the florets facing out.

STEP 2: Next up mix the condensed Cream of Mushroom soup and sour cream in a bowl. This makes a delicious creamy mixture that you pour down the middle of your broccoli spears. One of the things I like about this broccoli casserole recipe is that it has such a nice presentation. Keep the toppings right down the center and you have the pretty broccoli florets peeking out of the ends.

STEP 3: Last, but certainly not least, cover the mushroom mixture in cheddar cheese. I like my Broccoli Casserole pretty cheesy but feel free to use a little more or less if you like. Then cover the casserole with aluminum foil, pop it in the oven at 400° F for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 5-10 minute more, or until the cheese on top is bubbling and fully melted.

Broccoli casserole is an easy recipe that is the perfect side dish for a weeknight dinner or a holiday meal. I love to have it on Thanksgiving or Christmas (sometimes both!). With broccoli, mushrooms, sour cream, and cheddar cheese, it is creamy and delicious, even the kids will like this recipe!

If you want to make this casserole ahead of time to help make Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter dinner a little less stressful you can totally do that. Just assemble everything and then cover tightly and put it in the refrigerator instead of baking it. The next day when you’re ready to make your sides just pop it in the oven.
