Hi, so the Brussel Sprouts were delicious right? And oh so healthy!

They are the perfect Thanksgiving side dish to compliment the delicious turkey. They will also help balance out all that yummy Chipotle and Cheddar Pumpkin Soup. Oh and we can not forget about the Pecan Pie Brownies that we have been secretly eating all day long!

So now that I gave you something green and healthy, it is time to get back to that comfort food we all crave during the holidays on those long winter nights!

This savory cobbler is the perfect easy dinner to make you feel all warm and cozy! It’s a lot like broccoli cheddar soup, but thickened up a bit and topped with flakey cheddar cheese biscuits. Then top it off with more cheddar cheese!

Hey there is a whole lot of broccoli in there, that counts for something right? Looking for some extra protein? Throw in some shredded chicken or you know what would be even better? That leftover turkey! Umm holly yum! What a great way to use up those leftovers!

Honestly though the whole family loved this casserole and is really easy to prepare. Especially after an extremely long day in the kitchen! I made ten and half pounds of buffalo chicken, two pans of buffalo chicken dip, two pans of a delicious chex  mix recipe (will be sharing soon!) and 4 pans of bite size pumpkin pizzas!

Yeah, I know. That is a boat load of food! I do not even think the Holiday cheer meister and Mr. Grinch could eat all that food! Don’t worry we are not trying to go into a food comma, we will save that for Thanksgiving. Nope the food is for party. Let the holidays begin!

  • Filling:
  • 1 can Low Sodium Cream of Chicken
  • 2 cans Low Sodium Cream Of Mushroom
  • 3 tablespoons Mascarpone Cheese softened (softened cream cheese would also work)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets fresh or frozen (I used frozen)
  • 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cheddar Drop Biscuits:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cold, 1 stick
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup more for topping
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk cold and shaken
  • 1 large egg cold
  • Freshly ground pepper for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • In a large bowl, add the cream of chicken, cream of mushroom and Mascarpone cheese. Mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in the broccoli, cheese, black pepper, and mix. Add the mixture to a rectangular or oval casserole dish about (8×12). Set aside.
  • Add the dry ingredients to a medium bowl: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and mix. Using a box grater, grate the cold butter atop the flour mixture. Transfer the bowl to the freezer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, measure out the buttermilk and add the egg; beat until combined. Grab the bowl out of the freezer, and gently break up the butter and combine with the flour, using your hands, until it resembles small peas. Next, add the cheese and combine until it’s evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk mixture all at once and mix until barely combined; lightly knead the dough until it forms one solid mass.
  • Using two tablespoons, drop 6-8 mounds of dough onto the surface of the chicken and casserole mixture. Top with a generous amount of cheddar cheese.
  • Top each biscuit with a few turns of freshly ground pepper.
  • Transfer the entire dish to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when the biscuits are lightly golden brown and the center is bubbling. To serve, remove one of the biscuits, exposing the casserole filling. Spoon it out into a bowl and top with a biscuit. Repeat.


* The dish can be made up to 3 days ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Bake as directed when ready.

  1. 5 stars
    Made this exactly as directed (including the addition of leftover turkey) and it was DELICIOUS. Got rave reviews at the dinner table. Would definitely make again. Thanks!!

  2. Is this dish supposed to have chicken in it? The recipe states to drop the dough onto the chicken and casserole mixture?

    1. Hi Sharon,
      I was referring to the cream of chicken. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  3. Ok, this might be a dumb question, but do you keep the soup condensed or mix w/ water like the can says to make soup?

  4. I made a veggied up version of this and wrote about it here. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. The cobbler topping was amazing!

  5. wish this was converted to australian, we dont hav the same products as yourselves, whats a cheddar drop biscuits ??lol and you’s can get alot of pre-packaged dough’s

  6. This sounds soo good. Making for dinner tomorrow evening. I plan on cooking my broccoli beforehand to ensure that it gets done. How do you think it would be if I used garlic cheddar biscuits on top? We love garlic here at my house!

    1. Cooking the broccoli before hand is a really good idea and the garlic cheddar biscuits?? AMAZING! That sounds so good! Hope you love this!
      Thanks Chante!

  7. it was a hit in our house i will make it again for sure ,, just want to let you know you say cook time 25 min and bake for 40 to 45 min you may want to change that .. mine was done in 20 min …
    thank you for such a wonderfull recipe

    1. I am so glad you liked it!!!! As fo the cook time, people have said it took longer and some have said it took longer!

  8. All I can say is amazing!!!!! This was delicious and I will be serving it at my dinner party in a few days! Thank you for a great recipe.

  9. Do you think that this recipe could be frozen before baking? i wonder if the biscuits would be wrecked if you froze it and then thawed it before baking it?

    1. I can not say for sure, but i would think it would be fine. Give it a try and make sure to cook it longer. Also I would pre cook your broccoli before you add it to the final dish so you will not bite down on cold broccoli!

  10. I cooked this for 45 minutes and the last 20 minutes I covered the dish but never could get the brocolli done…and my biscuits were hard on top after cooking so long. I plan to make this again but will almost fully cook the brocolli first and add cooked chicken in as well.

    1. I used frozen broccoli for this, not fresh. The frozen broccoli must cook faster than fresh. Sorry I about that! I would roast the fresh broccoli with some olive oil, salt and pepper. I will also update the recipe. Let me know how the second try turns out!

      1. I don’t think you have updated the recipe actually… I just popped the casserole in the oven and I used fresh broccoli, and I’m just now seeing that the broccoli should be pre-cooked. 🙁 Just gonna wait and see how it turns out

  11. hello!,I love your writing very a lot! proportion we keep in touch extra approximately your post on AOL? I require an expert in this space to solve my problem. May be that is you! Having a look forward to look you.

  12. I just spent some serious time browsing your site and I have to say I am STARVING now! Your recipes look amazing! Thanks for linking up- I will be featuring some of your recipes for sure!!

  13. So I made this last night. It was very good and I will surely make it again. However, I suggest putting the soup mixture in the oven a bit longer before adding the biscuit dough on top. Or cook the broccoli a bit before anything. We wanted the broc to be a bit softer. I baked it at 400 degrees for 25 min. and that wasn’t nearly enough time. I took it out an realized that the soup was still a bit cold and only the top of the biscuits were baked. So, I put it back in the oven for another 20 min. So…cook broccoli first and leave in oven much much longer. It was so yummy! Like a pot pie! OH! I also added some chicken breast as well. Enjoy!

    1. YOu are right that this dish should be baked long! That was an error on my part! Thanks for pointing it out! Glad you enjoyes the dish!
