Truly though, can you go wrong when you smother anything with cream of mushroom soup and cheese? We think not. This casserole is easy to make and great to make a day ahead of your feast because it somehow gets even more delicious when it is reheated. Trust us.

Is this the healthiest side dish on earth? Of course not. But, there’s a healthy dose of broccoli so you can at least feel good about that when the rest of the meal is full of carbs and butter. Indulge on the annual day of indulgence. Be thankful that you can do so. Make some for people who need it more than you. More than anything – enjoy it!
