Part of the appeal could be that I used corn instead of broccoli. My MIL grows bushels and bushels of sweet corn, and brings me grocery bags full of blanched and frozen kernels. I didn’t have any broccoli, so I broke open one of the 2013 sweet corn baggies and used that instead.
There is so much wonderfulness here, I’m sure it would be just as delicious with broccoli. Also, no need to roast a turkey. The meat off a rotisserie chicken would be perfect. (The bonus to that would be you could call it “Chicken and Egg.”)
You can use fat-free half-and-half to cut calories. I go through that stuff like crazy and have good luck with it. Well, except for that one time I tried to whip it like heavy cream. Epic fail.
