What’s a great way to get kids to eat broccoli?….cover it with cheese!!! Not to mention, this cheesy broccoli bake is wicked delicious.

Most traditional southern broccoli casserole recipes are loaded with mayonnaise, butter, eggs, cream-based condensed soup and topped with buttery Ritz crackers and cheese. Don’t get me wrong, this version is epic and worthy of the occasional splurge, but I wanted to come up with a lighter version that was gluten-free and equally delicious. It still contains all of the usual cheesy goodness with less butter and made with whole-food ingredients. We think it’s a winner and I hope you do, too!

How To Make Gluten-Free Broccoli Casserole

Here’s What You’ll Need For This Recipe:

  • 5 cups of fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 12 oz sharp white cheddar cheese, grated 
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Bring an inch of water to a full boil in a large pot and add steamer basket with broccoli. Cook, covered, 5-7 minutes until the stem pierces easily with a fork. If you are using the microwave bags of broccoli florets, that’s even easier, just follow the instructions on the packaging. Drain broccoli, thoroughly (very important), and set aside. Mix all of the remaining ingredients, reserving 1/2 cup of cheese, in a large bowl. Add broccoli and stir to combine. Pour mixture into a 9×13 inch casserole dish greased with butter or sprayed with olive oil and top with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is lightly golden.

    1. Hi Margaret! I haven’t tested freezing it prior to cooking, but it should be fine as long as the broccoli has cooled completely before covering and freezing. I would hold off on topping with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese until baking. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before cooking. Let me know how it turns out!
