This recipe is from Louise Clausen a childhood friend and wonderful person. She won the Girl Scout cook off with it (or was that the 4-H cookoff?) and our family has been enjoying it for years! It's great by itself and wonderful with beef chicken or pork.
broccoli - 20 oz frozen/chopped (you can use fresh too!)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 large egg - beaten
1 cup mayonaise (Helmann's is best)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 melted butter
Preheat oven ot 400 degrees F. Cook and cool broccoli and place in bottom of a medium sized casserole dish - set aside.
In a bowl beat the egg well and add the mayo, soup, onion and cheese. Mix thouroughly.
Pour mixture over the broccoli and spread evenly. Combine the melted butter and bread crumbs and sprinkle over the entire dish.
Bake for 20 minutes and it is golden and bubbly.
This is a great make ahead side dish and you can double it if you are feeding a crowd. Thanks Louise!!!!!
