I think you guys probably have seen the photo above. Well, over the weekend, I have been receiving recipe requests for this dish. I actually google looking for lasagnas recipes but somehow ended up looking at casseroles. Way easier, simpler and faster to make! So, here goes.
The original recipe is here. This is my modified version. (Can feed 10 people!)
• A good hand palm sized broccoli, cut into pieces
• 1 big can of Campbell mushroom soup – you can choose potage with mushroom too.
• 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 cup mayonnaise
• 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
• 113g of unsalted butter, cut into pieces (Half block of butter. Why unsalted? Coz the mushroom soup and cheese themself are already too salty!)
• Pepper (optional- coz the second time I made it, I forgot and it still taste good)
• 4 pieces of Hup Seng’s cream cracker cap Ping Pong
1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Brush some oil/butter onto two 5.5 inches baking dish or a 9 inch baking dish (up to you).
2. Steam broccoli until crisp-tender, 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water.
3. Mix soup, eggs, mayonnaise, cheese, butter and pepper in a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and combined. (To avoid the cheese from being burnt in the hot pot, I used a wok filled with hot water, and cook the mixture in a pot, placed in the hot water – experience!)
4. If you find the mixture is too thick to be stirred, add 2 tbsp of milk. (Not too much, otherwise, the casserole would be runny)
5. Pour cheese mixture on top. Drain broccoli; spread evenly in baking dishes. Sprinkle with crackers. Bake for 30 minutes.
If you plan to leave it overnight in the fridge, you may also reheat it in the morning for breakfast/other meals. If you are using microwave, perhaps 2-3 minutes heating would suffice (not too sure). I am using oven, so I leave the dish for 10 minutes after taking it out from the fridge, then reheat it in oven, at 180°C for 15 minutes.
Eat it with whole grain wrap or bread (because it can be too salty for some people). Delicious!
