Creamy Potato Broccoli Casserole

This Creamy Potato Broccoli Casserole is one of my favorite ways to serve veggies, and it’s the simplest, too. Creamy white sauce blankets layers of hearty potatoes and tender broccoli florets, creating a rich and satisfying side dish that pairs well with just about any main course. My kids love it – and I hope your kids will feel the same. 

Here are a few tips for best results: Skip the pre-shredded Parmesan and use freshly grated cheese instead. Although convenient, pre-shredded Parmesan is often dry and doesn’t melt quite as well. Grating fresh Parmesan cheese from a wedge is simple and yields the best flavor and texture. Creamy and starchy Idaho potatoes work well in this hearty dish, as do Yukon Gold potatoes.  

To make the Creamy Potato Broccoli Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:

To the same water, add 2 ¼ cups broccoli florets and cook for about 3-5 minutes until tender but not mushy. Drain the broccoli florets well.

Slowly add in 2 ¾ cups milk and a dash of black pepper and continue whisking until it comes to a boil and is thickened. Remove from the heat and allow the sauce to cool slightly.

In an 8-inch square baking dish, spread a couple of tablespoons of the prepared white sauce on the bottom. Layer the potato slices over the sauce and add a sprinkle of oregano leaves.
