I got this recipe from my dear mother. It is the same except it uses 1/2 cup grated sharp ched. cheese in place of the processed and instead of bread crumbs it calls for 1/3 cup crushed Ritz crackers dotted with 2 T butter. I then sprinkle additional cheese on top of that. I always double or triple this topping. Boil broccoli first until done and drain. Then procede in putting together. I usually make it with a blend of broc, cauliflower and carrots. The topping is great and a nice addition,that is why I gave this 5 *. Thanks Michelle!
I love this recipe! So does my husband kids and everyone I have made it for. I substituted sharp cheddar for the process cheese and butter crackers for the topping and it is fantastic. The bottom of the dish is scraped clean every time; whereas before I always had leftover broccoli when I used to make it plain with just cheese over the top. I didn't boil the broccoli first and it was just perfect for me. Awesome recipe!
We made this for Thanksgiving and there was nothing left over! We tried it when it wasn't hot anymore (we had to travel) but it still tasted very good. We used mild cheddar (instead of the processed stuff) and sprinkled another layer on top. Then we sprinkled crushed Ritz crackers on top of the cheese because if you put them underneath the cheese they will become soggy. It was a great recipe!
Tried this for Thanksgiving this year. I prepped it the night before and put it in the fridge until it was time to bake. It was nothing fancy but it was good solid comfort food. It turned out great! Everyone liked it. I thought it looked a little too saucy when I mixed everything so I added a little more cooked broccoli. I also used Ritz on top (put those on before I baked not the night before.) Great recipe!
This definitely was a nice change from the always wonderful green bean casserole. I used cheddar in lieu of the jarred stuff sour cream and mayo a bit of lemon juice my usual garlic and onion powders and crushed crackers for the top. I made a lot and I'm sorry to say that there was very little leftover for me to have as my lunch! Really good Michelle and thanks!
I used fresh broccoli and added some dried minced onion and onion powder. Topped with crushed Ritz crackers. A little salty but everyone ate it at Easter dinner. Think I will stick with my other recipe.
