Easy Broccoli Casserole – Make Broccoli Too Delicious to Hide

Tired of having to disguise this less than favorite vegetable? Make an easy Broccoli Casserole. It makes this healthy green vegetable to delicious to hide!

Every once in a while, we want to introduce a little something different to the Thanksgiving or holiday table. But it has to be something that will please them all, with the hopes of it becoming another tradition. 

For the most part, our Thanksgiving tables are laden with tradition – Grandma’s hot rolls; Aunt Betsy’s green bean casserole; the apple pie that we just hope that Cousin Bob hasn’t sampled long before the turkey is served. 

This Easy Broccoli Bake is just such a recipe.  Super easy, as the name suggests, and delicious to boot! Who knows?  This may be your next tradition!
