Cheesy Broccoli Casserole: An amazing vegetarian dinner with broccoli florets, veggies and cheese!
Guys and Gals, it’s October-in-August around these parts. It’s raining, it’s cold, and we’re pretty much stuck inside, singing our lungs out to Katy Perry, and cooking casseroles. Cookies, too. It’s just how we roll.
And, as long as we’re being real, lemme ask you; do you ever bite off more than you can chew? ‘Cause LORD knows I DO! I am filled to the rim! Busting at the seams! Trying to keep afloat! You understand, I’m sure.
Buuuuuut, I’m sorta thankful because then there are those times when you’re like, uh-oh, why don’t I have a full schedule? Did I miss a phone call? Did I miss an email?!?
There’s also that back-to-school thing that’s kinda freakin’ me OUT! Ana starts kindergarten in one week. KINDERGARTEN! The lil’ girl, the one that barely weighed 6-pounds when she was born, is about to take off and start her school-journey. Freakin’ OUT!
Breathe in, breathe out…
Not sure how all this happened. I’m only 23!
Don’t worry about what my driver’s license says, m’kay? In my mind, I’m 23.
Before I continue to freak out, can we just have some damn good food??
In honor of back-to-school, I made you this Cheesy Broccoli Casserole. Kids hate it, moms LOVE IT!
I am forever in love with broccoli. With any and all vegetables, in fact. I like green, tree-ish lookin’ things. Not as much as cake, but I do love them enough to want to stuff my face with ’em.
This casserole is sort of a healthful combination of broccoli florets, a bit of garlic, couple of carrots, some onions, and handfuls of cheese – because, let’s face it, even I can’t have veggies without cheese. It’s the natural thing to do.
I also love to add a good dose of panko crumbs on top of almost all my veggie casseroles. It satisfies that craving for an extra crunch, you know?
If you’re looking to make the best veggie dinner yet, give this a GO. Serve it as a side dish or as a main – it’s delicious either way! I think you’ll like it.
