How To Make French Onion Broccoli Cheese Casserole

This is hands-down our favorite broccoli casserole. It is super delicious and SUPER easy to make with only 5 simple ingredients. Broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, french onion dip, cheddar cheese, and french fried onions. I used fresh broccoli florets, but you could also use frozen broccoli florets. 

To make this broccoli casserole, simply mix everything together and bake. It literally takes about 5 minutes to assemble.

One very important note about this French Onion Broccoli Cheese Casserole. This recipe uses a cup of French onion dip. You want to use the sour cream based French onion dip found in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. I prefer the flavor of Kraft brand, but Heluva Good Dip, Barbers, Dean’s or the store brand will work great too! Just make sure it is sour cream based and not the jarred stuff in the chip aisle. SO important!!

Can I Make Broccoli Casserole in Advance and Freeze?

Absolutely! You can assemble it ahead of time and refrigerate it until ready to eat. You can also make this casserole ahead of time and freeze it for later. If baking from frozen, let the casserole thaw completely in the refrigerator and then bake as below. You can also freeze the leftovers for a quick side dish later. Just thaw and reheat in the microwave.

  1. This was a fantastic recipe. Do not be afraid of the French Onion dip overpowering the recipe. Try it, you will not be sorry!

  2. I wanted to make this recipe, but didn’t have any dip. But I had dry onion soup mix and sour cream. So I made my own dip. Love this casserole. So easy to divide into smaller portions and free for later.
    Yummy! Thanks for all of your great recipes.

  3. Hi, I love your blog and have been following it for years. We are a military family and recently moved to Germany. Our commissary doesn’t have ANY refrigerated chip dips (so sad)! What would you recommend using instead? Regular sour cream? The chip aisle dip in a jar? I’d appreciate any thoughts you might have. Thank you!

  4. What about using frozen broccoli? I notice a couple of people have asked, but I don’t see where you have answered!

  5. I made this tonight and added some shredded chicken to make it a meal instead of a side dish. Oh my gosh it's amazing! So easy to make. Thank you!
