Broccoli shrimp casserole is a favorite of mine. There are so many different cheeses that can be used, experiment. For gluten-free, wheat-free, use Progresso gluten-free broccoli soup instead or equivalent and don't add the milk. All Campbell soups contain wheat and are not gluten-free. For vegetarians leave out the bacon.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We loved this creamy cheesy, broccoli casserole. Adding shrimp bulks it up and could be served as a main meal or a side dish. Cayenne adds a little heat to the casserole. But we really enjoyed the bacon. It adds a smoky flavor that's nice with the savory cheese and creamy broccoli cheddar soup. Done in 30 minutes, this is an easy dinner.

How To Make broccoli shrimp casserole

  • Fried bacon on a paper towel.
    1
    Fry bacon to a light crisp. It will be baked later for 30 minutes later.
  • Steaming broccoli.
    2
    Cut up broccoli into small pieces (if you didn't buy them that way from the store). I steam the broccoli for 3 minutes and drain.
  • Thawed shrimp in a colander.
    3
    If your shrimp is frozen, place in a pan of hot water to thaw. Don't overcook, they will be baked for 1/2 hour later.
  • Broccoli cheddar soup, milk, steamed broccoli, and salad shrimp stirred together in a bowl.
    4
    Put the broccoli cheddar soup in a small bowl. Slowly stir in the milk into the steamed broccoli. Add and stir in the salad shrimp.
  • Broccoli mixture poured into a baking dish with shrimp and bacon on top.
    5
    Transfer the broccoli mixture to a sprayed 2 or 2.5-quart casserole dish. Put the larger shrimp over the casserole dish evenly. Cut the bacon into small pieces and spread over the casserole dish.
  • Broccoli shrimp casserole baking in the oven.
    6
    Sprinkle on the cayenne pepper to your taste. Place in a preheated 350 F oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle on the cheese over the casserole.
