ISO Broccoli Cheese Casserole recipe

Am thinking of taking a Broccoli Cheese casserole to Thanksgiving dinner, and have never made it before. Any ideas? I'm hoping that I can make it with what I have on hand, but will go back to the store if need be. I have frozen broccoli, so I hope that will work. it was on sale today. Thanks in advance. :)

It has to include bacon. I make a broccoli cheese dish with wild rice and bacon. I toss in celery, onion, some chicken stock, and make a cheese sauce using a couple of different kinds of cheese. It is sort of a "whatever I have on hand" dish and I don't really have a recipe. Here's one that is sort of like what I do (but I don't use canned soup):

And I usually include some cream cheese or Neuchatel cheese, a bit of blue, some white cheddar, smoked gouda...no CHEEZ WHIZ!

I have bacon in the freezer too! I can do bacon. That sounds yummy.I think I could just throw something together too, but when taking it somewhere, I don't like to experiment as much in case it doesn't turn out like I think it will. :)

I do a make as I go, and quite similar to CWS's, and it usually includes Velveeta and Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, a dash or two of soy sauce and lots of fresh ground black pepper. It's nice with extra mushrooms and toasted slivered almonds, sometimes low fat cream cheese stirred in.

Thanks CWS and Dawg. Now you know that I won't be adding any mushrooms. I guess if you like that sort of thing. ;). I'm still thinking that whatever I end up doing, bacon is still a great idea. I think I have some cream of celery soup. Maybe that will work. It is a good thing that I still have a little time.

This thread has intrigued me. My family loves rice. And bacon.

The recipe made me chuckle. Fresh broccoli and canned soup and Whiz? Plus the amounts seem way off.

I would love to make something like you do with the wild rice, bacon and mornay sauce. Could you share an approximation of a recipe ? I don't cook with recipes most of the time either so I understand. Just general instructions are enough.

Tnx
