    breezermom's Note:

    I love broccoli, and I love cream cheese, so this is a natural for me! When I was growing up, we always had that broccoli casserole with the rice, cheese, and cream of chicken, mushroom, or celery soup. But I have been trying to avoid the sodium content in the cream of "whatever" soups, and found that this broccoli casserole is really tastey! I've listed topping it with bread crumbs or ritz crackers, whichever is your preference. Do not use both...it is too much breading on top! I've also made this using fresh chopped broccoli and garlic, great either way! I hope you enjoy it!

      Made a few insignificant changes when preparing this dish ~ Used fresh broccoli & garlic, & then topped it all off with some crushed Milton's Original Multi-Grain Crackers! We're big fans of broccoli & thoroughly enjoyed this casserole! Will certainly be making this again, 'cause it's a nice new way to enjoy this veggie! Thanks for sharing it!

      This was very good! I am not a big fan of vegetable casseroles, but an annual potluck I attend always calls for a broccoli casserole. I am very excited to find this recipe, which provides a much fresher taste, and I really appreciate how it doesn't require cream of soups, sour cream, and mayonnaise. I used fresh broccoli, which I quickly blanched (I like the broccoli to remain crisp at the end of the baking time), omitted the salt, used skim milk and low fat cream cheese, and low sodium Ritz crackers for the topping. I also crushed the crackers directly on, without adding additional butter. I was very impressed with how it turned out. Thanks for sharing!

      This was DELISH! I doubled the recipe and added chopped leftover thanksgiving turkey to morph this into a main dish. I also baked it in a 13x9 casserole dish. Will definitely make this again! Hubby and 4 kids (1,6,12,14) loved it!!
