Recipe for Kathleen's Famous Broccoli Casserole

Kathleen Tschishow is famous among her family and friends for her broccoli casserole. In fact, her elderly grandmother once said to her, ďWhen I go to heaven, if they donít have your broccoli casserole, Iím leaving.Ē The following Kathleenís Famous Broccoli Casserole is easy to make, and is a perfect side dish to serve with almost anything. Itís great at holiday time with ham or turkey, but equally good throughout the year served alongside grilled meats and poultry, or the Sunday pot roast. The white sauce can be made on the stovetop, but itís easier in the microwave; directions for both follow. The stuffing can be leftover homemade stuffing or a prepared box of stuffing; the walnuts are simply mixed in.
This is one of those recipes thatís absolutely perfect just as is. However, the simple components could easily be varied according to taste and what happens to be in the kitchen. I thought crisp bacon could be added to the stuffing; my husband loves cheese in his white sauce, so that was his suggestion. My granddaughter, Bella, thought a layer of cooked sliced chicken would make it a great main dish casserole for a busy weeknight. Iím sure you could substitute slivered or sliced almonds, pecans, or hazelnuts for the walnuts, if so inclined, or the walnuts could be lightly toasted in the oven before adding them to the stuffing to bring out their flavor. Kathleen sometimes adds cauliflower along with the broccoli. While variations and add-ins can be fun, they can make a dish complicated, so keeping it simple may be the best option, especially for busy cooks.

All of the Official Hancock Tasters loved this dish Kathleenís way, even Mr. Picky, and I plan to be making it over and over in the future for both family and company.
