Favorite recipe from Mom

This weekend's theme at Today's Housewife is favorite recipes from Mom or another relative.

My mom has many dietary restrictions, and has for many years, so most of the time I cook very differently than she does. Although she loves onions, she hasn't been able to eat them since sometime during my childhood. I find it hard to make any main dish without throwing an onion or three into it.

The recipe I'm sharing is something she can actually eat as well as being one I love, too. It is an easy, all-in-one casserole. The reduced fat ingredients are the way I make it, Mom always uses the regular ingredients. Yep, I even alter my mom's recipes a smidge. Hope you enjoy it.

Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Casserole

32 ounces frozen broccoli, chopped
2 cups cooked ham, chopped
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup reduced fat Bisquick®
3 cups milk, skim
4 eggs

1. Heat oven to 350 F. Cook broccoli and drain. (I actually only thaw and drain-it bakes for an hour so I don't think it needs pre-cooking.) Spread in ungreased 9"x13" baking dish. Layer ham and cheese over broccoli.
2. Beat remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour over cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour.


  1. This sounds so tasty and easy too!! I can't wait to try this. My honey is a sucker for ham and cheese anything;)

  2. This looks wonderful! I'm going to use this for my once-a-month cooking. Thanks so much!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
