Everyone knows that broccoli and cheese are a staple combination, especially during the holidays. This tasty broccoli casserole is the perfect side dish for a scrumptious holiday dinner, or bake it to go along with an everyday family meal.
Cooking spray, or butter, for greasing dish
10 to 12 ounces frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons finely minced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 dash pepper
1 1/2 cups half-and-half, or light cream
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
3 large eggs, beaten
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 2 1/2-quart casserole or baking dish.
Arrange the cooked and drained broccoli in the prepared casserole.
Heat the butter in a large skillet or sauté pan; add onion and sauté for about 2 to 3 minutes, until onion is tender.
Stir in flour until well blended and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the salt, nutmeg, pepper, and half-and-half. Continue cooking over low heat until thickened. Stir in cheese and cook just until cheese is melted.
Add about one-third of the hot cheese sauce mixture to the beaten eggs; add back to the hot mixture, blending well. Pour over the broccoli.
Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center of the broccoli casserole and comes out clean.
Serve and enjoy!
