Keeping Holiday Tradition with My Grandmother’s Broccoli Casserole

This post is sponsored by Borden® Cheese. Thank you for allowing me to share my favorite brands with you. One of the things that I cherish from my childhood are the holiday dinners at my Grandma Dot’s house. Grandma Dot could throw down in the kitchen, whipping up some amazing dishes from scratch.

I do this by switching out Carbs with delicious locally sourced vegetables to…
