Broccoli Cheese Potato Casserole


INGREDIENTS
  • 4 cups shredded potato (I used a 20 ounce bag of hash browns)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (I used frozen/thawed)
  • 2 cups finely shredded cheese (I used a fiesta blend) - add an extra cup to the inside of the casserole if you like things really cheesy!
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion, small chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • optional: shredded chicken breast
INTRUCTIONS

  1. Put everything EXCEPT 1 cup of the shredded cheese into a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Press mixture into a 9x9 casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake covered on center rack at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.  Uncover and bake an additional 10 - 15 minutes until cheese is starting to brown.
  4. Enjoy!
