Cheesy Broccoli Potato Bake

Two of my favorite vegetables are broccoli and potatoes. Today’s recipe combines the two with melted cheese for a comforting casserole side dish or a main entree for a meatless meal.  Add a salad and a piece of fruit to complete your vegetarian dinner.

I’m using grated Gouda  and mozzarella on my dish but you could use cheddar cheese instead of Gouda. Mozzarella is relatively low in fat and calories. This makes it a healthier cheese option,  I chose low or no fat dairy products to lower the fat content of the dish, but you’d never know it from the taste.

If  you do meal planning for your family, I suggest you make baked potatoes one night with 3 extra potatoes and use the leftovers the next day with this cheesy casserole.  I use the brocolli florets and the stem in the casserole.  Peel the stem and chop for the casserole.  As a matter of fact, if you use the florets the day before, you can easily just use the stem pieces in this dish.  The casserole can even be assembled the day before and baked the next day for a fast meal too.

    Looks delish. I love one-dish meals. I think I have a collaboration coming up soon on my YT channel. I may borrow this recipe. If I do, of course, I will give you all the credit. But it looks so good. Pinned and tweeted. Thanks for sharing at #aclwcc.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
