I made a double batch because I had lots of beef and broccoli. I made a made a white sauce with butter and flower and thickened with a little cornstarch in the end. I think this may have added what was missing for some of the other posters. I only used 4 cups of milk for my two casseroles (half of what the recipe calls for). I did not use cooking spray on the top and it turned out great! As for seasoning I added a little s&p to the broccoli the beef and the sauce.
Lots of work for flavorless dish Followed the recipe to a T. Took a long time to cook put together and bake. Was hoping for a great result with all of the combined flavors and it resulted in a boring tasteless dish. Needed to add Sriracha on mine and my daughter added ketchup. It helped clean out my freezer but I would not make again. Pros: Healthy with broccoli good way to use up stuff in your freezer. Cons: Tasteless. It's a three part cooking process and the end result is... meh.
Highly recommend Very good combination of ingredients. I did not change the recipe - the turmeric adds a kick to the dish and is not overpowering. Definitely need to roast the broccoli as it adds to the unique taste of the casserole. Family loves it!
This dish was amazing. It's going to be my new go-to comfort food. I agree with the other reviewer about Alexia hashbrowns I used them and they were flavorful and perfect they seemed to me fresher than other brands. I also suggest going with the roasted broccoli as opposed to the frozen as it added so much flavor. My husband and I also discovered that a spot of Tobasco sauce really enhances all the flavors. Sooo good.
Surprisingly Delicious! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this dish! My husband and I cooked it together so it was a little hectic in our tiny kitchen. I felt like it took a bit long to prep and cook but again there were two of us. I used frozen broccoli and it tasted great. I also used frozen hash browns and thawed them a little in a saute pan with some water. I would have cooker them a tiny bit longer. Overall great dish and I can't wait to make it again. Pros: Tasty Good ingredients Cons: Cooks a long time
Tasty cheesy-broccoli dish I really loved this dish; it was satisfying kept me full longer. My husband liked it okay (he said he likes other things better but he would eat it again). I don't necessarily find it the most appealing looking dish in person (I have an aversion to nacho cheese and the cheese sauce takes on that appearance) but once I ate a bite I changed my mind. I didn't really find it lacking in flavor (I even took the easy way out and didn't roast the broccoli). I think the Worcestshire sauce really brings it together flavor-wise. And the hashbrown topping is yummy! I would make this again.
Too rich and need more flavor Overall the dish was flavorless. I even reduced the sauce and it still tasted too rich. I need the beef in every bite to get some flavor. Would not make it again. Pros: Hash brown and beef was tasty Cons: Cheese sauce too much!
