Try this quick casserole that even will satisfy folks not fond of broccoli. “Our minister's wife served this and was kind enough to share the recipe,” recalls Helen Phillips of Greensburg, Indiana. “It's very good.” TIP: Feel free to replace the stuffing croutons with crushed stuffing mix.

"Loved this dish! It was easy to make, I had all the ingredients on hand, very tasty and ever better as leftovers. I didn't change a thing!"

"This meal was delicious, and even better the next day. When it first came out of the oven, it was a little loose. However, as it sat a little bit it was fine. My only modification to the recipe was adding some chopped green pepper to the onion."

"Will plan on making again, although with personal changea and/or additions: 3 cups fresh broccoli crowns, 2 cups milk, swiss cheese, 1/2 cup or so black olives, and 1/2 to 3/4 cup fresh mushrooms. We prefer swiss cheese to cheddar in this dish. Thank you again for sharing! K."

"Very tasty combination... I added fresh garlic when sauteing the onions and also added some salt to the cheese sauce... Glad I chose this recipe to use up my leftover ham from Christmas!"
