Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Casserole
Frozen broccoli is transformed into a delicious cheesy casserole side dish that everyone in the family is going to love. As a mom I love how easy this recipe is to put together. Seriously, in less than 5 minutes I can have everything ready to go, 10 minutes if I decided to shred my own cheese by hand. But to be honest, to save time I usually just use the pre-shredded cheddar cheese.
And speaking of cheese, I can almost always get my kids to eat their veggies when it is covered in a yummy cheese sauce. My husband likes it too and of course, so do I!
Serve this cheesy broccoli casserole as a side dish with your favorite entree. It goes well with pork, chicken or beef! And if you have any leftovers, warm it back up the next day and spoon over a baked potato for lunch!
