Kairos Broccoli Kasserole

Kairos Broccoli Kasserole

Recipe courtesy of James K Jones from Kairos Kafe

4 cups frozen broccoli florets

1 cup mayo

2 large eggs

1 cup cheddar cheese

1 cup Cream of Mushroom

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 tablespoon heavy cream

3 cups soft bread crumbs *see note on the bottom

½ teaspoon minced garlic

Sea Salt

Cracked Black Pepper

Cracked White Pepper


1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers

Cook about 5 cups of water in a saucepan, add salt, pepper, and garlic and bring to a boil. Add Broccoli, bring back to a boil, and strain. Preheat oven to 375.

Transfer Broccoli into a large mixing bowl. Add in Mayo, Cheddar, Eggs, Cream of Mushroom and heavy cream. Mix together with a spoon until ingredients become uniform. Add salt & pepper to taste, and fold in bread crumbs just until they are incorporated into mix.

Spray a 9X12 casserole dish with cooking spray. Put in a splash of heavy cream and even it out into the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle in garlic, and a dash of salt & white pepper. Spread out evenly and sprinkle crushed Ritz crackers over the top. Melt butter and drizzle over the top.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook just until the top browns.

Serve immediately or cover and keep warm until you want to serve it. Enjoy!

*I use leftover rolls from the Kafe to make my breadcrumbs, but any soft untoasted breadcrumbs will work (leftover rolls, biscuits, or any soft bread) I have found that Italian Bread Crumbs or Panko Bread Crumbs do not work well with this recipe.
