With its creamy white cheese sauce and buttery crumb topping, this dish is great comfort food. If you’re looking for a mild way to dress up broccoli, this is the recipe. —Charles Keating, Manchester, Maryland

"I adore broccoli casserole, but I didn't care for this at all. The sauce was good when I tasted it before cooking it in the casserole, but the flavors just mixed together and it was rather bland."

"I would never make this recipe for a "healthy" meal! What part of 4oz butter, 4oz cheddar cheese & 6oz cream cheese is healthy? It's bad enough that you have to click on another link to find the "healthy makeover" for the other recipes, this one didn't even have a link to a "makeover". Of course we can all substitute low fat cheeses & use skim milk & greatly reduce the butter, but please don't try & pass this off as healthy."
