An American recipe for a large party
1 large broccoli (or 2 small ones)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 cups cream of mushroom soup
½ cup mayonnaise (1 package)
100 g cheddar cheese, grated
50 g crackers
¼ cup melted butter + some for brushing
salt and pepper to taste
Divide the broccoli into florets. Boil in salted water, sieve and dice.
Combine the eggs, mayonnaise, soup, and garlic in a large bowl. Stir in the broccoli and cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat the oven to 170 °C.
Brush an oven-proof dish with butter. Pour in the mixture.
Place the crackers into a plastic bag and crumble by using a rolling pin or your fingers. Pour over with the melted butter.
Sprinkle over the broccoli mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes.
The original recipe calls for cream of mushroom soup, yet you can replace it with home-made consommé combined with 1 tbsp starch.
