1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme, dried

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup evaporated skim milk

Recipe Directions for VEGETABLES: Broccoli Casserole From Scratch

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook, stirring often, until softened and slightly translucent, about 4 minutes.

  3. Stir in mushrooms, onion powder, salt, thyme and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until the mushroom juices are almost evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  4. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture; stir to coat. Add milk and sherry or broth, and bring to a simmer, stirring often.

  5. Stir in broccoli and return to a simmer. Cook, stirring, until heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in sour cream and buttermilk powder. Remove from heat.

  6. Stir in the grated cheese, egg beaters, and breadcrumbs. Mix well. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish.

  7. Bake the casserole until bubbling, about 15 minutes. Top with extra grated cheese and breadcrumbs if desired. Continue baking 5-10 more minutes until eggs are set and topping is lightly browned. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
