Broccoli Cheddar Caserole

This is a great side dish at any family meal. But I especially like it at Thanksgiving. It's not "traditional" but that's what I like about it! My son is not a huge lover of broccoli, but boy does he like this! He scarfs it down!

2 bags (16 oz.) frozen chopped broccoli, warmed in the microwave or thawed. Drain in a colander

3 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cans (10 3/4 oz.) cream of mushroom soup

2/3 c. light mayo

1 medium yellow onion, grated

1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 1/2 c. crushed cheese crackers (Cheez-Its)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

1- Spray a 12 c. casserole dish with Pam.

2-In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs. Add soup, mayo, and onion and whisk together. Fold in broccoli, cheese and 1/2 cup of the crushed crackers. Spoon into prepared casserole dish. Top with remaining 1 cup crushed crackers

3-Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. It should be done, when you shake the dish and the center is set. Serve warm.

* When I made this, I also used finely shredded Parmesan cheese for an extra little kick. If you choose to use this also, just mix it in when you follow direction #2.

*I got this recipe from Family Circle Magazine
