Crab and Broccoli Casserole

This is a great recipe for a wonderful casserole. I love seafood, and broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables. I like this casserole because has all the appeal of a comfort food, but it is much better for you. You will need the following ingredients:

2 tbsp of butter
1/4 cup of chopped onions
8 ounces of crab (not imitation)
1/4 cup of cream and 1/4 cup of water
2 cups of cooked broccoli (can be fresh or frozen)
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tbsp of lemon juice

The steps to making this casserole are fairly simple. You want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 1 quart casserole dish, and put the broccoli (already cooked) into the bottom. Sprinkle the broccoli with the cheddar cheese. Melt the butter in a pan and saute the onion. Add a tiny bit of flour to the onion, and add the salt. Gradually stir in the cream and water mixture. Cook this mixture until it has thickened, and add in the lemon juice and crab meat. Pour the mixture over the broccoli and cheddar, and bake it for 30 minutes. Serve it immediately and enjoy!
