I really love this and - guess what - it contains Velveeta.
My mom doesn't use Velveeta. Except for broccoli casserole.
It's so delicious and creamy!
And the broccoli is so fine and creamy and the crackers are crunchy and the texture of this casserole really works for me.
Plus, it's a flavor from my childhood.
It's so good and not just for Thanksgiving. I make it year-round.
Anytime you need a vegetable casserole with virtually no nutritional value, this is your go-to dish!
It's mine, anyway.
Christmas here we come.
4 ten-ounce packages frozen chopped broccoli
2 sticks butter, divided
16 oz. Velveeta cheese
2 tubes Ritz crackers, crushed
In a large pot, bring about 2 inches of water to a boil. Add the frozen broccoli and cover. Cook for about 15-20 minutes until the broccoli is very tender. Drain well and return broccoli to pot. Add the Velveeta and one stick of butter. Stir well until broccoli is fine and cheese and butter are melted. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish.
Melt the other stick of butter and stir in the crushed crackers. Top the casserole with crackers. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, until bubbly. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
