I loved this casserole. When I make it again, I will make a few changes though. I would double the broccoli, use 12oz of sour cream and probably triple the crackers for the topping. I know I would have to add more butter for the topping, but the crackers and butter were marvelous. I think I will make this again for Christmas dinner. It is so great!!! Thanks for posting the recipe.
This was fantastic! I served it as a side at Thanksgiving this year (doubled it) and it was almost gone. It got rave reviews from all of my guests. Thanks for a great recipe!
MMMMMMM...This recipe reminded me of a broccoli casserole that my aunt makes. I halved the recipe, used fresh broccoli I cooked till tender crisp, used some cheese sauce from a jar, and instead of Ritz crackers, I used club crackers. Everything else was the same...At supper, my 7-year old wanted seconds, and my 13-year-old thought it was good too! How can you go wrong with broccoli in cheese sauce and a crunchy topping?! I think my husband, who's not real keen on broccoli might like it too! We'll see when he gets home from taking our teenager to church! Anyway, I couldn't wait to write a review....It was delicious and I know I'll be making this again as a way to get my family to eat broccoli!! Thanks!
