Cheesy Broccoli Casserole:  258 calories per serving and just 4 carbs! Serves 6

This is a fluffy egg casserole that is reminiscent of the 1960’s and 1970s.  It’s the “feel good” dish that brings to mind a simpler, less complicated time, a time where conversations happened at the dinner table.  Bring that lovin’ feeling back home.  Listen to the Righteous Brothers while you’re enjoying it!

¼ cup chopped onion
4 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons flour
½ low cup fat half and half
½ of a 15 oz jar of Cheez Whiz Original Cheese Dip, or other processed cheese spread
20 oz. package of frozen chopped broccoli, thawed or 5 cups fresh, then steamed and chopped broccoli
3 eggs, well beaten

Saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter.  Stir in flour, and then gradually add ½ cup low fat half and half, stirring constantly until thickened. Add cheese spread and blend well. Drain broccoli thoroughly. Combine sauce and broccoli. Add eggs, mixing well. Pour into greased 1.5 quart casserole. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to an hour, making sure the center is cooked by testing with a thin knife through the center.
