Family Recipe Friday - Elizabeth's Broccoli Salad

When my brother was married in 1974, I gained a new sister, but our family received  a wonderful new cook!  Elizabeth loves to cook and she has discovered some recipes that have quickly become family traditions.  One of those recipes is the one I am sharing in today's Family Recipe Friday. It is Broccoli Salad, and since Thanksgiving of 1976, it has been a staple at just about all our gatherings.

Broccoli Salad
4 10 oz. Boxes chopped Broccoli
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 Eggs
1 c. Mayonnaise
2 Packages Cheddar Cheese

Cooking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Combine broccoli, soup, eggs, mayonnaise and 1 cup of cheese.  Bake 45 minutes. The last 15 minutes sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

This recipe is very simple, but looks and tastes incredible!


  1. Lori - this looks like a yummy recipe! I bet it would be good with fresh broccoli. I'm copy and pasting this into my recipes and will be trying it soon. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, btw, it's so good to see you back blogging. I missed you!

  2. Thank you, Mary! This is a great recipe! You will love it!

  3. Hi, This looks like a yummy recipe, suits me fine because I am a vegetarian.
