Broccoli Casserole with French Fried Onions

As a vegetarian I'm always looking for new vegetable recipes that look and taste great.
Most Americans love Green Bean Casserole, you know? the one with those French Fried Onions!
I think we all serve it at Thanksgiving. I know we always had it during the Holidays at my Grandmother's house.
Here's a spin on that All American Casserole.

Broccoli Casserole ( with French Fried Onions)

2 - 10 oz. packages of frozen broccoli ( cuts or florets, not chopped)
1 TBS butter
1 C chopped onion
1 - 10 3/4 oz.can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 hard boiled eggs, sliced, divided ( slice 3, set aside, slice the other 3 and set them aside)
2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can of french fried onions

Cook according to directions, drain and set aside
Melt butter in a saucepan and saute onions until translucent
soup, undiluted
ground mustard
whisk well
cook until bubbling

Place half of the broccoli in a 2 qt,  buttered casserole
Top it with half of the eggs
Half of the cheese
Half of the soup mixture
Half of the onions
Repeat ( except for the remaining onions) Save them for the last 5 minutes of baking.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes
Top with remaining onions and bake an additional 5 minutes

Peace in the Kitchen!
