A new Thanksgiving Recipe

I said I would post some of my favorite recipes for Thanksgiving and this one you can also make all year long and it will still be a hit. This is my son's favorite meal. It was passed to me by my son's aunt, and we love it. No, it is not a low calorie meal, but it is delicious!! Yes, it's a casserole, but a good one.

                                                  My Broccoli Casserole

2 pkgs of frozen chopped broccoli-thawed
8 oz jar of cheese whiz
2 eggs beaten well
1 tbls of flour mixed in a 1/2 cup of cold water
1/4 cup of chopped onion
4 tbls of butter or margarine

the topping:
3/4 of a box of wheat thins
4 tbls of butter or margarine

Directions:

Melt 4 tbls of butter in a normal size pot, about a 12 cup pot. Stir in the onion and saute. Add the flour mixture and stir until it thickens and then add the eggs immediately, and continue to stir until all is thick. I usually pull the pot off the stove so it won't burn until it is thick, then add the cheese whiz  and stir until melted. Once melted, add the broccoli and stir together and put on med heat, continuing to stir off and on until heated. About 10 min.

Get a casserole dish, small one and either coat with pam or shortening, and pour mixture in, spreading evenly.

Set aside, and then pour wheat thins in a bowl and crush them to almost crumbs and melt the remaining 4 tbls of butter and pour over cracker crumbs and mix together. Spread the crumb mixture on top of the broccoli  and put in a pre-heated oven of 350 degrees. 45-50 min.

Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

I always double this recipe and bake it in a 13 by 9 casserole dish so that there is plenty. This is always a hit and I am sure your family will love it. If not for Thanksgiving, it is always good served with a salad or a baked potato, and a roll. Try it, you will love it!

Love, Lisa
