This simple cheesy casserole is comforting while keeping the carbs in check. Serve it alongside roasted chicken or pork.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer basket. Add broccoli, cover and steam until just tender, about 5 minutes. Coarsely chop the broccoli.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and reduce heat to medium-low. Continue stirring until the onion and garlic are starting to brown, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.
Combine cream cheese, sour cream, 1 cup Cheddar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the onion mixture and stir until well combined. Add the broccoli and stir until coated. Transfer to an 8-inch-square baking dish; sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar. Bake until the casserole is hot and the cheese has melted, about 25 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
