Broccoli Cheese Squares
Broccoli Cheese Squares is a terrific recipe for the holidays! This Broccoli Casserole is LOADED with cheese. And I mean LOADED with a capital “L.” It has cheese, cheese and more cheese! It’s actually quite easy to make and doesn’t use that many ingredients either. It really is a great side dish for almost any kind of meal.
The original Gooseberry Patch recipe called for two 12-oz. bags of cheddar cheese. Twenty-four ounces! Seriously. I used only 16-ounces and still thought that was probably more than you need. I will leave you, the reader, to determine if one or two 8-ounce bags is enough. Regardless, this is one cheesy dish of deliciousness that you’ve just got to try.
We work with our church’s college group every Sunday night. Friends of ours have opened their home for weekly Bible study, prayer and a meal for all of them. She got a turkey through work, so we decided to make up a “Thanksgiving” type meal back at the end of September. I brought a Biscuit Cornbread Stuffing recipe, Broccoli Cheese Squares, Scalloped Corn with Bacon, Creamy Pear Salad and a couple of Toll House Pies. All of the college group raved over that meal. Yes, they enjoy good home cookin’ especially after a couple of years of dorm meals.
Broccoli Cheese Squares make a wonderful side dish this time of year. Plus, it’s always nice to have some good side dish recipes that don’t take more than about 5-10 minutes to whip up. If you enjoy broccoli with a dose or two of cheese, this is the dish for you!
