Apple Broccoli Casserole

No matter what the calendar says, it is always pitch-in dinner season somewhere. Tired of being the one that has to buy a cheese platter already “made up” to take? Tired of those people who assume you can't cook. Those kitchen bullies who try to kick culinary sand in your face? (so to speak) Well you are about to create some fantastic potluck envy! Yes You!

This is a simple casserole made from some great tasting ingredients that just perhaps those old fogies had never thought to put together as well as this. Simply answer, “Why yes, I'd be glad to bring a homemade casserole!”

  • 2 “heads” of fresh broccoli
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 medium cooking apples, chopped
  • 1 (8oz.) low fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese


Set out the cream cheese to soften.
Start by cutting the little florets from the head of broccoli. Put them in a large bowl of water with ½ white vinegar. Let them soak for 15 minutes.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 and spray a 9 x 14 casserole dish, set aside.
Meanwhile chop the onion.
Cut the cream cheese into chunks and put in a large mixing bowl.

Add the onion and eggs. Stir this well.

Peel and core the apples and cut into chunks. Mix this into the bowl.

When your oven is ready, rinse the broccoli and drain. Carefully stir this into your bowl so that it is well mixed together. Spread into the casserole dish.

Now sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top and bake for 30 minutes.

The top should be nice and bubbly with some places starting to show a golden brown.

The aroma will be heavenly! Not only that, it makes a very pretty dish with the yellow and green mixed together and the golden brown on top.
People could eat this as a meatless main dish! You might serve it with a side of peaches or pears! Compliments will fly and you will have gained more respect for your talents.

Note: this may also be made with shredded white cheddar, but slave feels this combination looks prettier and does not cost as much! However you can kick it up a notch by sprinkling ¼ cup of dried cranberries with the cheddar! But after that, restrain yourself: the glory will just be TOO much!
See if this song brings back memories.

You know, if I could not serve my Master Indy, I don't think I could breathe. I know that slave could feel no joy without that.

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
