Everyone’s had a version of this beloved cheesy broccoli casserole at potlucks or holiday dinners, and it’s not hard to see why it’s such a popular recipe. Baking broccoli in a cheesy sauce (with mustard for a tangy kick) and topping it with a crunchy, golden bread crumb topping will entice even picky eaters to dig into this classic vegetarian side. You can play around with different cheeses in the recipe, or add rice to make it more filling. The recipe cooks in under an hour and is also convenient to make ahead of time, so it’s ready to pop in the oven with zero prep time needed.

  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup

  • 4 cups fresh or thawed frozen broccoli florets (about 12 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs

  • Tips

    • Alternate Preparation: Add 2 cups cooked white rice to the broccoli mixture before baking.
    • Flavor Variation: Substitute mozzarella cheese for the Cheddar.

  • Step 1

    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.

  • Step 2

    Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the broccoli mixture.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 30 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.  Serve hot.

    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.

    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 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.

    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!!!!
