Boring broccoli has met its match when it comes to this recipe. We’ve gone and put together a casserole that takes hearty and tender broccoli and combines it with a lovely mix of rich sour cream, spices and topped it off with a crunchy layer of cornflakes and melted Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut. The cheese seals the indulgent and creamy flavors inside. A perfect side dish for your next family meal!

  • 1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen broccoli florets
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup packaged cornflake crumbs
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Fine Cut or Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut
  1. Cook frozen broccoli in simmering water with 1 teaspoon salt and sugar 2 minutes or until thawed and warm. Drain; set aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, remaining salt and pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in sour cream; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Melt remaining butter and toss with cornflake crumbs. Layer half of the broccoli, half of the sauce, 1 cup cheese and half of the crumb mixture in a 1-1/2 quart baking dish. Repeat layering once more with remaining ingredients. Bake in preheated 400°F oven 25 minutes.
