Easy Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Rated as 4.8 out of 5 Stars

"For the longest time, my mum would make this amazing broccoli casserole. It is more like a crustless quiche, but has converted many broccoli haters into broccoli lovers! I have not ever tweaked this recipe - not even to add minced garlic, sauteed onion, pimento, etc; it's too simple and delicious on its own to need tweaking. This can be made ahead and refrigerated before cooking. It freezes well and can be thawed prior to cooking."

  1. Fill a large bowl with ice water to create an ice bath.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook, uncovered, until bright green and tender, about 3 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in the ice bath for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch casserole dish with vegetable oil.
  4. Combine broccoli, cottage cheese, eggs, Cheddar cheese, butter, flour, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Spread into the prepared casserole dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered, until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 60 to 90 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If using a glass casserole dish adjust oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Loved it. Creamy, custardy, smooth and tasty. I changed the technique a little bit. I microwaved the fresh broccoli (2 small heads) in a glass pie dish with a little bit of water and covered ...

Love this recipe! It's delicious and easy enough to make. Loved even by non-vegetable eaters!

I will definitely make this recipe again. It tastes like a delicious quiche without the crust! Only substitutions/changes were Country Crock for the butter, olive oil for the vegetable oil, and ...
