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

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)

  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
