This one is good but it doesn't call for any cream:



CHEESY BROCCOLI CASSEROLE
14-16 ounce package frozen broccoli florets
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
4 green onions, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 pieces bacon, chopped and fried until crisp

Cook the broccoli 4-5 minutes or just until tender-crisp; drain very well. Put in a greased 2-quart casserole. Mix in the cream cheese, cheddar, green onion, salt, pepper and bacon. Bake at 350║ for 20-30 minutes, until bubbly.

Makes 4-6 servings

I haven't tried this but it sounds good. I'd sub LindaSue's cream of mushroom soup recipe for the condensed soup.

Broccoli Cheese Puff Recipe (source: fabulousfoods DOT com)
By April S. Fields

Instructions

Heat oven to 350░ F.

1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons VWG
1/2-teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
1 cup (4 ounce) grated Cheddar cheese
2 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
3 eggs, well beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon Splenda
1/4-teaspoon salt
Pepper

Stir almond flour, VWG and salt together; cut 4 ounces of cold butter in with a pastry cutter until you have the texture of cracker crumbs. Set aside.

In large bowl stir together the rest of the ingredients except pepper until well blended. Stir in almond flour mixture mix just until loosely combined.

Pour into greased 12 x 8-inch baking dish.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until set in center.

My favorite Atkins recipe: Crustless Broccoli, Bacon and Cheese Pie

1/2 lb bacon
1/2 lb red onion, sliced
6 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 boxes (10 oz. each) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1/2 lb. Gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 10" quiche pan, 6-cup pie plate or 9" deep dish pie plate. In skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove and place on plate lined with paper towel; coarsely chop. Drain all but 1 Tbs. drippings from pan. Heat over medium heat. Cook onion until tender, 8-10 minutes. In bowl, combine eggs, cream, broccoli, cheese, salt, cayenne, reserved bacon, and onion. Add mixture to prepared pan. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing.

This is really good! I think this is the best quiche/pie I have had. I didn't use that much brocoli, I used one bag of frozen.

What would be a good sub for the Gruyere cheese? I've never had it before (that I know of) so I don't know what it taste like.

Do you think this can be made ahead of time and cooked for Christmas breakfast?

For me, there isn't much taste to gruyer, but others may differ. I think you can pick any cheese that you like.

I make it and we reheat it all week for breakfast, so yes, I think it can be made ahead of time.

Gruyere is kind of like very ripe, pungent Swiss cheese. I've tried it a couple of times and couldn't eat it. Too strong and stinky for my taste but I love Swiss cheese.

Thanks catkan. I have a bag of 4 cheese blend that's already shredded that I think I'll use. I may also add some sausage that I need to use up.

LindaSue, I remember years ago having a strong tasting cheese that my friends called "stinky cheese" so maybe I have had Gruyere before.

Now the decision is.....do I make this recipe or do I make LindaSue's Early Rise Breakfast casserole, which I made for Easter breakfast. It sure is yummy...decisions, decisions, decisions
