This is a standard at Christmastime. Everyone loves it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This simple broccoli casserole is thick, creamy, cheesy and so good. Initially, we were a little concerned about the lack of seasoning, but the cheese and soup add tons of flavor. You can add a bit of salt and pepper when serving, but we thought it was yummy as is. We love the simplicity of this recipe. It's tasty and easy to make... a win, win. Plus, it doesn't make a huge dish which is great if you're not serving a crowd. The Test Kitchen
