Slow Cooker Broccoli Corn Casserole

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 145)

I served this yummy slow cooker broccoli corn casserole with my first ever slow cooker whole chicken a couple weekends back.

Easy, creamy and delicious, it reminded me a lot of the vegetable casseroles Mom used to make for Sunday dinners when I was growing up.

Most of the time these days I eat my vegetables either steamed or roasted.

So this quick and easy slow cooker broccoli corn casserole was a fun and tasty change of pace.

Here’s a picture I shot of the leftovers the next day, which obviously are not as photogenic as they were the night before…

But, I don’t think I’m ever going to be one of those bloggers who’s willing to hold up sitting down to dinner with her family trying to capture the perfect shot. Especially when I’m hungry!

To shave a few calories and points from my slow cooker broccoli corn casserole and make it a bit more Weight Watchers friendly, I increased the amount of broccoli by 1/2 cup and decreased the french fried onions by the same amount.

Today’s food for thought…

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
~ Henry David Thoreau

And weight loss tip…

Always portion out your food and put it in a dish. Studies show that when people pre-plate their food, they eat about 14% less than when they take smaller amounts and go back for seconds or thirds. Put everything you want to eat on a plate before you start eating – snacks, dinners, ice cream, and even chips. Your stomach won’t have to count and you won’t have to remember how much you took. Instead of eating directly out of the package or box, put your snack in a dish and put the box away. You’ll be less likely to eat more and more and more!

    Hello, I noticed you use whole eggs in some of your recipes. To reduce the WW points, can you use Egg Beaters? Like the Broccoli Corn Casserole, would that be possible to use EB instead? Would it matter as far as points & taste? Thank you

      Hi Carolyn,

      Thanks for your question. Yes, I prefer the flavor and nutrition of whole eggs. But, of course, you should do what works for you. And if you prefer egg beaters, I’d suggest you give them a try. I don’t think it would change the flavor of the slow cooker broccoli corn casserole much. And I’m not sure the change would be enough to decrease the PointsPlus. My quick review of the math suggests that the calorie savings would be about 20 fewer per serving. Not sure if it would change the points plus. You could always run it through the Weight Watchers recipe builder to be sure. Hope this helps.

      Martha
