  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 1 cup broccoli or as required

Instructions

  1. Start off by setting your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8x10 baking dish so the ingredients do not stick to the bottom or sides.

  4. Combine the thyme leaves and butter, putting it over the very top layer. Put the dish in the oven for about a half an hour. You will need to wait until the casserole is warm all the way through. You can tell that it is done with the sides of the casserole have turned a golden brown color.
