Then cook another 3 to 5 minutes until hot. Then add grated cheese and heat till melted. Broccoli & Cheese casserole is a main dish for a Southern meal. We add a favorite meat for a side dish along with other cooked vegetables. Some people from the south add cooked chicken meat to the Broccoli & Cheese recipe. It makes a great main dish alone especially for the vegetarians.
