Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Great recipe," raves Dee. "For personal preference I added red pepper, French-fried onions, butter and crackers to the mixture and sprinkled crackers on top. Used American, Cheddar and Velveeta cheese."

"Made this with fresh broccoli, steamed it first," says one Allrecipes community member. "Also didn't have cream of mushroom but used cream of onion. Delicious!"

"It turned out great," according to another Allrecipes community member. "My husband doesn't even eat broccoli, but he loved it. The rest of my family did also. I didn't have any cream of mushroom soup on hand, so I used the same amount of Alfredo sauce from a jar."
