Mom’s Light Broccoli Casserole

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. My mom makes it every year. It’s so yummy and comforting, and low-fat too! It’s a great way to get your veggies in, and goes great with anything. Adam loves this casserole, and asks me to make it any chance I get. So I jumped at the chance to make it to go along with my chicken crescent pockets and roasted corn on the cob that I made for our friends Chad & Jennifer this weekend. I hope you enjoy! Oh, and I forgot to take pictures until the next day, so that’s why the dish is half full:)

  1. I made the broccoli casserole and it was so yummy! Chase wouldn’t eat it, but he doesn’t like broccoli. He only eats his veggies when I puree them and sneak them into dishes. But I LOVED IT! So easy and quick. Thanks for the recipe. Love ya!
