Made this last night, and it was loved by all. The three of us usually eat about 1/2 pound of california blend when I just steam and season it. We nearly finished this off. I subbed low-carb bread crumbs for the Ritz to fit our LC lifestyle.
Thank you for posting this yummy recipe! As I maintain a low-carb, low glycemic life style, I made the following changes:<br/><br/>1. No crackers<br/>2. Regular sour cream instead of low-far (organic would be ideal)<br/>3. Organic fresh broccoli only (no carrots or cauliflower - as those are higher on glycemic index)<br/>4. Organic mayo (Trader Joe's brand - my fav)
I made this the other night and took afghanmom's advise...mixed the butter, mayo, sour cream, etc and then combined with the veggies. Also, I was out of Ritz crackers, so I used the french fried onions (crushed first) as afghanmom's suggested, as well as saving some for the top of the casserole. This dish was a real crowd pleaser and such a great change from the ordinary! Thanks for posting...it's a keeper!
This was very good, but the next time I make it, I think I would change a few things. I would mix the butter, sour cream, mayo, cheese, salt, pepper and garlic powder together and then combine with the vegetables and onion. I would also sprinkle the crushed crackers on top before baking instead of mixing it in with the other ingredients. I think french fried onions would also be a great topper :) -Thanks Parsley
