Recipe Notes

  • I like to use sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Basically, the seasoning added here is to season the broccoli that was added.
  • I like to add sliced almonds into the recipe.
  • I love how lemon juice "brightens" dishes.
  • You can serve this over riced cauliflower.

In my brilliance, I forgot to take a picture of the finished product.  It looks like you would expect any other cheese topped casserole to look like. 😉  I will add a picture the next time I make it!!!

Until the next time…
