This hearty casserole is my favorite dish to make for a potluck. With the green of the broccoli and the rich cheese sauce, it's pretty to serve, and it makes a tasty side dish for almost any kind of meat. —Margaret Mayes, La Mesa, California

MY REVIEW

"My family and I loved this recipe but I made some alterations to it. ..i substituted evaporated milk for 2/3 cups of vitamin D (x2), as well as I used "shamys garlic butter" for sauteing the onions and broccoli. I also used velveeta cheese (about 16 cubes) in the sauce as well as I used 1 can of cream of celery(instead of chopped celery) and 1 can of cream of mushroom..oh and I MIXED everything in a souffle dish and topped with the rest of the sauce that was left and with shredded Monterey cheese! It came out very creamy and cheesy but not soupy. My husband and two kids LOVED IT!! There was no left overs!!! I will be making this again!"

"I have made this several times and we love it. I do pre-cook the broccoli before since we like our cooked veggies fork-tender, not crisp-tender (except for corn on the cob). This time I used cream of broccoli soup that I happened to have. And I use a cup of Cheez Whiz for the cheese sauce."

"I have used this recipe since it came out in Taste of Home for years. It is a huge family favorite..in fact, I am making it today to take to one of my daughter's friends who just had her wisdom teeth out and needs something yummy but squishy to eat! A definite must try!"
