Cream of Broccoli and Mushroom Soup

Two of my oldest son's favorite soup!  He loves broccoli and mushrooms and soup made from both.  I combined the two this morning and he has all but devoured it!  Keeping the bellies full and bodies warm as the temperature drops here in Florida.  Stay safe and warm, my friends!

Broccoli Tater Tot Casserole

Tater tot casserole has been around for a long time, hasn't it?   It is in old cookbooks, magazines revamp it once in awhile and I even remember seeing it on the show with all the children that start with a J.  I have to say, I admire Michelle.  There is absolutely no way I could have 19 children and keep my wits about me.  Cooking,, cleaning, homeschooling, church and who know what else she does. Nope. There is No. Way.   Any who, back to the tater tot casserole.

Broccoli Bake

I do cook real food...see!  It's just that we are in a rut and eat the same things over and over again, it seems.  Until I saw what my lovely friend Ann, of The Fountain Avenue Kitchen shared with us last week.  Her Broccoli and Prosciutto Bake looked too good not to make!  It is an easy dish that I just knew would be a hit, and it was!  I adapted it to use what I had on hand, you do that too, don't you?  Yeah, I thought so. Anywho,  this is really easy, versatile and YUMMY!  It is made with frozen broccoli, my oldest son's favorite veggie, crescent rolls *another favorite*, and whatever you want to add.  I am going to add fresh mushrooms and whatever leftover meat I have next time.   It's wonderful to eat with a fork or cut into small pieces for an appetizer, my son was eating it pizza style.  However, you make and eat it, I know it will be a favorite in your family, also.

Broccoli Bake 

1 tube original crescent rolls 
5 to 6 cups frozen broccoli florets, measured frozen, thawed and squeezed dry with towel 
  you can substitute other veggies and/or meat for part of the broccoli
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk, 
1.4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon white pepper. or to taste
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, or to taste
drizzle of lemon juice, optional

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.  Beat eggs and milk together, set aside. Unroll crescent rolls and place in the bottom of an ungreased 8x11 or 9x13 pan.  Put half the shredded cheese over the bottom. Layer optional meat and/or veggies, then broccoli.  Pour milk and egg mixture over top.  Drizzle with lemon juice, if using and sprinkle with  seasonings,  Top with rest of cheese.  Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until set and golden brown.  Enjoy  

I cooked this in a Le Creuset baking pan I bought over 20+ years ago.  I love it! 

This is shared on this great party!

Roasted Frozen Broccoli

My oldest told me he loved broccoli.  I was actually being to doubt that this is true.  It seemed every way I made it wasn’t the way he liked it.  I cooked it in soup, casseroles and covered in cheese to no avail.  Last night I decided to roast it in the toaster oven. Jackpot! He loved it!  I put the frozen broccoli florets in the toaster oven with only a spray of olive oil and kosher salt. There is so much that can be done with this.  When it comes out of the oven add a splash of lemon juice and fresh ground pepper. Sprinkle it with grated parmesan and/or cheddar.  Cut it up and add to cooked rice.  The possibilities are endless.  Very easy and great,  just as it is.
