Even picky eaters can't deny the dynamic duo of broccoli and cheese! This Broccoli & Cheese Casserole recipe is a classic dump-and-bake dish that you can prep in minutes (it takes longer to heat the oven!) and uses ingredients you have on-hand. The condensed cream of mushroom melts with the Cheddar cheese and a little mustard into a rich and creamy cheese sauce that coats the broccoli perfectly under a buttered bread crumb topping. Don't skip the mustard- it adds the perfect little flavor pop! And if you have leftover cooked rice, you can stir that in, too- see the tip below for how. Broccoli & Cheese Casserole is veggie comfort food!

Heat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, stir the soup, milk, mustard and cheese in a 1 1/2-quart casserole. Add the broccoli and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the broccoli mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
I get requests to make this at least 12 x a year from friends and family. For parties, holidays or any celebration. Even birthday parties!!! You only have to tweak it a little bit. Only add half a teaspoon of mustard. Add half a cup more cheese and a little more breadcrumbs. Also I add a little garlic salt to the mixture. I promise you this is the best way to enjoy this recipe.
Broccoli & Cheese Casserole
i have made it twice now. First took to Thanksgiving, i made it with broccoli and cauliflower and used mozz cheese .. and topped with the frenchs fried onions...it was a hit! I made it again and also used both broccoli and cauliflower, 2 cans mushroom soup, couple good squirts of ranch, rice and cheddar cheese! It was so good! I put in a 13x9 pan and baked it with tin foil on it for 20 min then put french fried onions on top for about 10-15 more min. .. it is delish .and im making it again this week! very good either way.
Campbell's Broccoli Casserole
Easy to prepare. Less stress than other recipes, lol. Taste is terrific. Good blend of ingredients. Thank you Campbell!
I followed the directions but I changed it up just a tad like the first review said by only adding one teaspoon teaspoon of yellow mustard, and I used to full cups of cheese. Also cooked it on broil to get it in nice and crisp on the top came out wonderful!!!
Love this casserole!
I personally add bacon bits to mine. I omit the breadcrumbs and put French's fried onions on the top. Delicious!!!!
