“Mom, can you teach me how to cook?” My five-year-old son looked at me hopefully. Maybe my habit of binge-watching cooking shows had started to rub off.
With our busy days, making dinner is another chance for us to spend time together as a family. That’s why we’ve partnered with Borden Cheese for the #BordenDinnerDare.
They asked us to make a favorite recipe and get everyone in the family involved. I knew immediately that I wanted to make this Cheesy Broccoli Casserole. It is so creamy and delicious. Plus, you can get kids involved by mixing ingredients, cutting vegetables and preparing the dish.
Cheesy Broccoli Casserole
Here’s what you need to make Cheesy Broccoli Casserole:
- 2 cups fresh broccoli
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 1 egg, beaten
- 8 oz Borden shredded sharp cheddar
- 1 cup diced ham
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add the salt, then add the broccoli. Cook for five minutes until the broccoli is blanched. Remove the broccoli from the water and place in an ice bath.
Once the broccoli has cooled, chop it into small pieces. Set aside. Older kids can help with the chopping, but since I have a little one, he mostly got to stir and sprinkle.
In a large bowl, mix together the soup, mayonnaise, onion, and egg. My son loved adding all the ingredients to the bowl and stirring them together.
Next comes the ham and 3/4 cup cheese. Mix in the broccoli.
Spray an 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray and add the casserole.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese — this was my son’s favorite job! He *may* have sampled some of the Borden cheese as he was adding it to the casserole.
Bake for 40-45 min at 350 degrees, until the cheese has turned golden brown.
Borden Cheese is perfect for this dish — the cheesy crust on the casserole is my favorite part!
For generations, Borden Cheese has been delivering wholesome dairy goodness to families across the country. Borden Cheese is not only made with pure, wholesome ingredients, but with genuine love from 8,500 American family-owned farms.
We purchased our Borden Cheese at our local Albertsons. They had a large selection of shredded Borden Cheese.
