I have to watch my fat intake, so I'm always looking for ways to make my cooking as healthy as possible. I adapted a family recipe to fit my diet. The better-for-you broccoli bake takes advantage of several fat-free or reduced-fat products. It calls for fat-free mayonnaise, reduced-fat cheese, reduced-fat crackers and reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed soup.—Carolyn Creasman, Gastonia, North Carolina


  • 6 cups frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat butter-flavored crackers (about 6 crackers)
  • Refrigerated butter-flavored spray


  1. Place 1 in. of water and broccoli in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the soup, mayonnaise, cheese, egg substitute, onion and butter. Drain broccoli; gently stir into soup mixture.
  2. Pour into a 1-1/2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with crushed crackers. Spritz crumbs with butter-flavored spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
