Easter Side Dish: Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Looking for another simple recipe to add to your Easter Sunday feast?  This is our family’s favorite casserole recipe, and I’m betting your family will love it too.  It’s so easy to make, goes great with the sales at Publix this week, and is always a crowd pleaser!


Serve it with Corn Casserole, some Sister Schubert Rolls, and Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Ham or Slow Cooked Maple Glazed Ham and your Easter meal will be all ready to go. (And yes, I know this is far from a healthy dinner, but it’s a Holiday so nobody’s counting . . .right?) 😉
