This Broccoli Cheese Casserole is a delicious side dish for the holiday table loaded with melted cheddar, broccoli and a flavorful bread topping.

All-in-one pan delight in every bite.

This has cheddar cheese inside and on top with lots of broccoli florets and topped with a crunchy buttery stuffing.

We even have a recipe for homemade cream of chicken soup instead of canned if you want all made-from-scratch ingredients just make this easy soup yourself!

You won't find a better side dish for any meal you make than this one.

To get kids to eat vegetables is like pulling teeth sometimes, but this is one they always gobbled up and now it's the most asked for during a holiday meal.

Every year no matter where we spend Thanksgiving, this is the casserole dish I am asked to make.

There are never any leftovers either!
