Creamy Broccoli Cheese Casserole Recipe: A Secret Ingredient Takes This Classic Casserole Recipe to the Next Level

I’ve seen lots of broccoli cheese casserole recipes topped with crackers, breadcrumbs and stuffing (how I make it). But my friend Sherry’s broccoli casserole recipe has a special ingredient that I’d never heard of before she shared it with me – she uses crushed cornflakes!

If you like broccoli cheese casserole, you have got to try this easy version. It's a classic casserole recipe elevated!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 2  packages (10 ounces each) fresh or frozen broccoli (use frozen steam-in-bag to save time)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 cups crushed cornflakes

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook or microwave the broccoli as directed on the package.
  2. Combine soup, eggs, mayonnaise and cheeses. Mix well.
  3. Add broccoli and mix again. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch casserole dish.
