- 1 head fresh broccoli, cut into small pieces

Can you Prep ahead and Overnight this Broccoli Ham Casserole?
Yes, you can prep this casserole the night before, tightly cover with foil, and cook next day. Anytime you overnight a casserole, the fridge makes the food extra cold. Its better to bring casserole back out to room temperature to take the chill off or it could take longer to cook. That being said, you could probably just pop in the oven from the fridge and just keep a close eye on when its done.
Can I use Frozen Broccoli?
I understand that sometimes frozen is much easier to deal with! You can use frozen broccoli – just add and cook in the skillet per the recipe. Note that it wont take you as long to saute up your broccoli and onions over raw broccoli. Typically 1 head of fresh broccoli florets is equal to approximately 3 – 3.5 cups of broccoli.

Can you freeze Broccoli Ham Casserole?
I know someone will ask this question. I am not a huge fan of freezing casseroles with dairy in them as the freezing and unfreezing process can cause dairy to separate and act weird.
