  • Stir the broccoli florets, cream of chicken soup, and 1 tablespoon softened butter together in a 9x13-baking dish until the broccoli is coated with the soup. Pack lightly to form a flat surface. Layer about half the slices of processed cheese food atop the broccoli mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes.

  • Remove the dish from the oven; stir to blend the melted cheese into the broccoli mixture. Top with the remaining processed cheese food. Top with the crushed buttery round crackers.

  • Return dish to oven and bake until the added cheese begins to melt, about 15 minutes more. Allow the casserole to cool and thicken slightly before serving, at least 15 minutes.

Happy Thanksgiving y'all.... I was searching for a different recipe for this dish rather than the one I had made for years just for something different. This was one of the dishes I was assigned to bring to our dinner today. After choosing this one I made a trial run of it for dinner last night. Everyone loved it!! Even my 2 yr old Granddaughter who as everyone knows 2yr olds don't like many veggies lol. The only things I changed was I used Chopped Broccoli (easier for my Granddaughter to eat) & the topping. My family loves the Durky Dried Onions so I topped it with those instead and spritzed them with a little butter. Perfect!! Tysm for sharing this quick & simple recipe!!

Way too much cheese for us. Would maybe like this if the cheese wasn't so thick and it was not Velveeta fake cheese taste. Will not be making this again.

When I make this casserole I use shredded sharp cheddar instead of Velveeta and I use more butter to drizzle over the top to make the Ritz crackers even more crispy. Always disappears. NOTE: This is good with a broccoli stir fry mix too.

This is almost the exact recipe I grew up with. Still to this day I crave mom mom's broccoli and cheese casserole. The difference that we do is add 2 eggs beaten use cream of mushroom soup 2 tablespoons of sour cream. Cook veggies in microwave for 5... strain. Then mix it all together and bake for 35 min at 350. It is delicious!

It would have had more flavor with a cheddar cheese instead of processed.

This is an update I have made this many times and it is always a hit. I use the Velveeta reduced fat block cheese and slice about a pound up into one can of Cream of mushroom and one can of Cream of chicken. Microwave the soup cheese mix until the cheese is melted (about 2 minutes). Mix well. I microwave the broccoli florets and just mix them into the soup cheese mixture. Place in a casserole dish top with Veggie flavored crushed rounds. I use the butter to drizzle on top and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Perfect!! Thanks for this recipe!

My kids nor myself eat broccoli but my cousin brought this over and it was a hit. Not one bite left. I made it last night and once again not one bite left. To the reader asking about adding water No I just melted the cheese cream of chicken soup and butter together and then poured over the broccoli and threw it in the over. I used garlic flavored ritz style cracker because that is all I had. This has to be the easiest dish next to green bean casserole. Good luck and enjoy

Turned out good just a bit too much cheese. Will try mixing with cheddar next time.
