My sweet husband loves broccoli rice casserole. It’s one of the dishes he looks most forward to eating for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Going low carb means finding an alternative to that rice filled dish.
I came up with a recipe this Thanksgiving and it received rave reviews from both carb eaters and low carbers. We also have diabetics on both sides of our family, so it felt good to give them a dish that wouldn’t contribute to raising their sugar levels very much, if at all.
LOVED IN THE SOUTH’S SPICY BROCCOLI CHEESE CASSEROLE
2 large broccoli crowns
1 container of Philadelphia jalapeno cream cheese
1 can jalapenos
2 small blocks of habenero cheese (cut into small pieces)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup full fat sour cream
Steam the broccoli. In a bowl, add broccoli, cream cheese, habenero cheese, sour cream, jalapenos (I drained mine and only used the juice). Gently mix until everything is well incorporated. Pour into a greased baking dish. Put shredded cheddar cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until bubbly. Serve hot.
I would love to hear if you try it. I hope you enjoy it as much as our families did.
