Broccoli Casserole

This recipe was given to me by my ex-mother-in-law. I've tried several broccoli casserole recipes & this is still our favorite.


2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped broccoli, cooked as directed, drained
3 eggs
1 heaping TBSP mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
1 & 1/2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken)
1 8oz pkg shredded Cheddar cheese
(optional~ crushed Ritz crackers)


1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl; whisk in the mayonnaise, cream of mushroom soup, & cheddar cheese, pour into cooked broccoli. Mix well, mashing broccoli as you mix. Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. (optional~ top with crushed Ritz crackers)
3. Bake in the preheated oven until center sets, 30 to 45 minutes.
