Creamy Broccoli Casserole

"MOTHER called this her secret recipe, and to this day, I'm not quite sure I have all the ingredients she used in it. But it still tastes great, so who knows—maybe I acquired some of her 'touch'. After I was married, this casserole became my husband's favorite vegetable dish."

    If I would make it again, it needs more flavor. Didn't go over very well at a family get together.

    I used French's Fried Onions instead of butter and breadcrumbs. It was a huge hit!

    YUMMY!! My family loved this last year when i made it for christmas. I took the advice from other reviews to toasted pecans & glad i did. I am making it again tomorrow for thanksgiving. It's something a little different and easy to make.

    I have made this recipe for years. The only different thing I do is toast the pecans. I don't even know where I got the recipe. I think from a church cookbook.

    Made it for my daughter's office party. Very easy to make. Next time I plan to saute the onions. Her co-workers asked for the recipe.
