Awesome Broccoli Casserole was totally awesome. I only wished I had read some of the previous comments prior to cooking this dish because then it would have been even better. I agree with others: the broccoli needs to be precooked first, cut down on the amount of onion (I say this even though I'm an onion lover), and put more of the cheese in the casserole instead of on top. I also agree that this dish needs to be cooked a little longer - about 10 more minutes. Even though there was a little room for improvement, this dish was AWESOME!


This is a very good casserole, although I made several changes that improved the flavor. I added lots more cheese. I got a pound of American cheese and shredded it, adding it into the broccoli mixture rather than putting it on top. I also used 1/2 cup of Italian breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup of crushed Ritz crackers mixed with 6 tbls of melted butter for a yummy topping. Rather than 16 ounces of sour cream, I used 8 ounces to cut back on the fat a little. Lastly, I added extra broccoli, which I cooked a bit before putting the mixture together. It is DEFINITELY a keeper of a recipe! I can't believe there are reviewers who do not like this recipe! It's one of the best Broccoli casseroles I've ever had!!:-) Thanks Cobra!


Thank you Cobra! I made this for guests tonight, one of whom doesn't have "broccoli" in his vocabulary and I was shocked to see him take seconds and say "this stuff is awesome" (why...that's part of its name!). I didn't cook the broccoli as others have stated...the recipe states to drain and thaw the broccoli, which did the trick for me. I also reduced the onion (alot) and added extra cheese...none on top. I also cooked covered and then the last 10 minutes cooked uncovered, which prevented any burning! Great sidesish and would definately make again!
