2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup diced onions
2 cups sliced mushrooms, about 1/4 pound
1 (10¾-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 cup mayonnaise
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 1/2 cups shredded parmesan cheese, divided
2 pounds frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 (6-ounce) can French-fried onions
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large saute pan heated over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Stir in the onions and mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat.
3. In a large bowl, stir together the mushroom soup, mayonnaise, eggs, 1 cup cheddar and 1 cup parmesan cheese until thoroughly combined. Stir in the thawed broccoli, then the cooked onions and mushrooms. Place the mixture into a 13-by-9-inch baking dish.
4. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining cheddar and parmesan cheese along with the French-fried onions to form the topping. Scatter the topping evenly over the broccoli.
5. Bake the casserole until bubbly and the topping is golden-brown, about 45 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.
