Easy Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

For the new year, I had my youngest make this dish. Please know that my youngest is not used to being in the kitchen and he did great! That’s how you know this really is an easy dish to make.

This dish turned out so well that we forgot to take a picture before eating it, lol! I’ll probably cook this again and, hopefully, someone remembers to take a pic for us to include in this post.

Even if you are not fond of vegetables, you’ll want to try this!
