Broccoli Cheese Casserole

I'm warning you up front.  This recipe is not healthy, low calorie, low fat, or low anything, but it is DELICIOUS!  We only make it once a year.  I never made it or heard of it until I married my husband thirty five years ago.  It was a standard his mother made during the holidays, so I continue the tradition and make it each Thanksgiving.  The past two years we have been away from home at Christmas time so I always make a little extra and freeze it to take with us for Christmas.  The only way you can possibly justify eating this much butter and cheese is that you are combining it with a GREEN VEGETABLE!

The recipe is simple, easy, and very good.  The leftovers even warm up very nicely in the microwave.  If you are looking for somethings a little different, give it a try!  Olivia and I love it.  Hope you will too!

Combine the following in a bowl:
6 T. flour
One stick melted butter (cooled slightly so it doesn't cook the eggs)
6 beaten eggs
8 ounces of cubed Velveeta cheese
16 ounces of cottage cheese
2 10 ounce packages or just 20 ounces of chopped frozen broccoli that has been thawed in the microwave

Mix all of this thoroughly and place it in a well greased casserole dish or 9 X 13 glass baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
