Favorite Broccoli Casserole
submitted by Larkin
- 3 packages frozen chopped broccoli, steamed and drained
- 3 eggs, beaten by hand
- 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 packages (16 ounce) grated cheddar cheese
- 4 tablespoons onion, minced
- 1 box cheese-its
Using a large mixing bowl, combine mushroom soup, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, and minced onion, stirring to mix.
Fold in the cooked and drained broccoli
Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 inch baking dish
Take the bag of cheese-it's out of the box, and using a rolling pin (or your fists) crush the crackers into small pieces (this is a great task to give to a kid).
Top the broccoli mixture with the crushed cheese crackers and a few pats of butter.
Cook the mixture at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until bubbly.
Brussels Sprouts Roast
- 1 bag Brussels Sprouts, ends off and halved
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 package dried dates, pitted and chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients and stir to coat thoroughly.
Pour onto a nonstick or greased baking sheet (I like to cover my baking sheet in foil for easy clean up).
Roast for 30-40 minutes or until the Brussels Sprouts are barely burned on the outer edges and soft to a fork.
Smooth and Creamy Dessert Squash Pie
submitted by Sheryl B.
- 6 ounces granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 15 ounces homemade sugar roaster squash puree
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 3 large eggs
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Prick holes in the squash with a fork and bake squash in oven on a baking sheet until the skin of the squash is golden brown and the body sinks in the middle (usually 1 to 1.5 hours).
In the bowl of a food processor, combine sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, and pulse 3 times to mix. Add the cream cheese and pulse until a homogeneous paste forms. Add the sugar roaster squash and butter and process for 30 seconds. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl, then process until the mixture is completely smooth, about 30 seconds longer. Add the eggs and process until completely smooth, scraping down sides as necessary. For extra-smooth pie, press the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or a chinois using the back of a ladle.
Pour the mixture into prepared pie shell and smooth over the top with a rubber spatula. Rap the shell firmly against the counter a few times in order to release any air bubbles. Transfer to the baking sheet in the oven and bake for until the filling puffs slightly and the center only moves slightly when jiggled, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating the pie half way through baking. Allow the pie to cool for at least one hour before serving. It may be chilled for up to two days.
