If the idea of a broccoli casserole doesn’t appeal to you immediately, take a look at the photos available at this website. They will undoubtedly change your mind about this dish. It looks fantastic. As a broccoli lover, of course, a dish such as this one could not fail to appeal to me; however, this dish will almost surely also appeal to non-vegetable eaters and finicky kids.

This dish is also easy to prepare and little helpers can do their part, crushing crackers. Of course, be sure to have extra on hand in order to feed a few to the help! Cheese makes this dish even more appealing, and you might want to have a few extra chunks for the hungry little birds that will gather to help you make this dish. The ingredients are quick and easy to pull together, cost effective, and sure to please everyone in the family. You can also feel good about the nutritional benefits of feeding a healthy green to your family.

The recipe uses frozen vegetables, which are almost as choc-a-bloc in terms of nutrition as fresh ones. If you have access to fresh broccoli, be sure to use it. Simply chop and steam the veggies lightly, for about 3 minutes, before combining them with the rest of the ingredients. Finish and bake according to the recipe directions. When I was a little girl, we often had this dish served with everything from fish to holiday dinners of ham and turkey. It was considered the perfect accompaniment to every meat, chicken, turkey or fish dish that we enjoyed at our house. We all loved it, and it was a great way to get us to eat our veggies. The cheese provided super protein and dairy and the greens offer vitamins and minerals, among other nutritional benefits.

Try this dish today. It can be served piping hot in the winter months to cheer and warm, or served at room temperature in the summer. It is the perfect dish to bring to family summer gatherings or serve special guests when they appear at your table. Without doubt, this dish holds plenty of appeal for anyone who tries it.
