Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

Cheesy Broccoli Casserole
Sometimes the only way to get kids to eat their veggies is by disguising it among other, more appealing, ingredients. This cheesy, bacon-y casserole does just that, offering up those good-for-you veggies under a cloak of irresistible creamy, salty goodness.
  • Yield: Serves 6
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 cups broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 strips bacon, cooked and chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, scallions, milk, and garlic powder. Add the broccoli and stir until coated. Place the broccoli mixture in an 8 x 8-inch baking dish.
  3. Top with the cheese and bacon and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 5 minutes, until slightly golden. Serve.

Note:

You can substitute a 2.5-ounce box of precooked bacon for the bacon in this recipe.
