With lots of cheese, this broccoli and mushroom casserole never lasts long on the dinner table. You can serve this alongside many entrees.


  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs


  1. In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in the flour, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low; stir in the cheeses until smooth (sauce will be thick). Fold in the broccoli and mushrooms.
  2. Spoon into a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over vegetable mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
