Riced Broccoli is available at Trader Joes in a 15 oz. package in the refrigerated produce section. Broccoli is high in calcium and with the addition of cheddar cheese and yogurt even more calcium is added.
1 package of Trader Joes 15 oz. Riced Broccoli (or use 2 frozen packages (8 oz.) of broccoli, chopped finely)
2 eggs beaten
1 small onion, chopped finely
½ cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream*
½ cup low fat yogurt (or use sour cream)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
¼ cup melted butter
1 package (7 oz.) herbed stuffing mix (Pepperidge Farm is a good choice)
*If you want a creamier casserole, use another ½+ cup of sour cream or yogurt.
Cook broccoli per package directions. Combine eggs, onion, mayo, sour cream, and yogurt to make a “sauce”. Place layer of broccoli in a 2 quart casserole dish. Add layer of cheese. Pour small amount of the sauce on top. Repeat. Top with stuffing mix and sprinkle with melted butter.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degree Fahrenheit.
