Broccoli Casserole: A Deliciously Green Thanksgiving Side Dish

Broccoli casserole is a great green side dish to have on the table on Thanksgiving. Sure, brussels sprouts and green beans are welcome green guests, but broccoli shouldn’t be left out of the equation. We’ve found that our kids are pretty resistant to brussels sprouts no matter how we dress them up and casserole, well our picky eaters want to know why their veggies have cream and brown stuff on them. But broccoli? This is a food our kids easily recognize and when it’s in a cheesy casserole, they’re certainly not going to argue. And even if you are the parent of good eaters, broccoli is a nice addition to Thanksgiving feast.

Family Kitchen blogger, Angie McGowan, shared her favorite broccoli casserole recipe with us earlier this month, so in cased you missed it, here’s how to make her famous dish….
