This is a great side dish. I used a mixture of broccoli and cauliflower instead of all broccoli. The directions were a little vague so I called my mom, who has made this before. Her recipe said to melt 1/4 cup of the margarine with the cheese, pour over the broccoli and then melt the other half to mix with the crumbled crackers (I only used 1/2 cup total margarine). Then I topped the casserole with the buttered crumbs and baked 1/2 hour. I used two of the inner wrapped tubes of crackers--not the whole box, and it was plenty.
This is wonderful - mild and cheesy - the kids loved it. Didn't change a thing.
Yummy. I used soy cheese snd soy butter.
