Cheddar & Blue Broccoli Casserole

Alton Brown is one of my cooking heros. He's so nerdy and lovable. I even have the same Kitchenaid mixer he has (minus the super sweet flames painted on his). This recipe is modified from Alton's Broccoli Casserole using Ramen Noodles. Yes, I know Ramen Noodles have a bad reputation, but "Punkrock Gourmet" cooking is a skill everyone should master. It's a culinary rite of passage and comfort food at it's finest.

1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup sour cream
6 oz Sharpshooter Cheddar, shredded
3 oz Chiriboga Blue, crumbled
2 eggs
2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
Flavor Pack from Ramen
6 cups frozen broccoli, thawed
8 oz Baby Bella mushrooms, sliced and sauteed in Garlic Herb Butter
1 package chicken flavored Ramen noodles, broken up
Terra Verde extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 350. Combine mayo, sour cream, cheddar cheese, blue cheese, eggs, pepper, and flavor pack from noodles. Add broccoli, mushrooms, and broken noodles and toss to evenly coat. Grease an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with olive oil and cook for 45 minutes covered. Then remove cover and bake for additional 15 minutes to brown. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
