5 stars from 1 rating of Broccoli and Potato Casserole
I always beat the egg separately from the rest of the ingredients because it will be distributed more evenly. If you do not, you may wind up with yolk in one part and whites in another which will disturb the overall consistency and taste.
Take care when stirring potatoes as they cook as they start to break easily as they soften. So, I tend to fold them versus stirring as they cook.
Broccoli and Potato Casserole
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 50 min
Yields: 6 Servings
3 Med-Large White Potatoes, Sliced thin
3-4 Broccoli Crowns, Discard Stems
3 Carrots, Sliced
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tbs. Rosemary
1 tbs. Thyme
1/2 cup Milk
1 cube Chicken Bouillon
1 cup Water
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella
Ready to Cook!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Boil water to cook the broccoli, if you have not prepared it ahead of time. Cook it to tender, but not mushy, about 5-7 minutes. When it is done, set it aside to cool for a few minutes before adding it in.
Coat the bottom of baking pan/casserole dish with about 1/2 of the allotted olive oil. I use my 12x8 rectangular ceramic baking dish.
Slice the carrots and potatoes and place them in the pan. Stir to coat them with the olive oil.
Beat the egg with the whole milk and heavy cream in a separate bowl and then add it to the pan. Mix it with the vegetables and add the broccoli.
Add salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary and stir to mix.
Crumble the bouillon cube in your fingers and spread across the pan. Add the water and stir.
Now, you have added all of the ingredients except for the mozzarella cheese, which you will add towards the end of cooking time. Place in the oven and cook for 30 minutes, uncovered.
After the 30 minutes is up, stir the mixture, place back in the oven and lower the temp. to 350 degrees. Continue to cook at this temp. for the remainder of cook time, about an hour.
15 minutes prior to the end of cook time, add the mozzarella cheese and the remainder of the olive oil to the mixture. This will keep it moist and delicious until serving time and when you take it out you may cover it with foil until you are ready to serve.
