Recipe by jpknight22
This is my favorite broccoli casserole recipe, courtesy of my aunt who lives in South Carolina. She traditionally serves this at Thanksgiving and at a few other family gatherings throughout the year. Aside from the ingredients, what really sets this recipe apart are the Ritz crackers mixed with melted margarine. Enjoy!

I made this for Thanksgiving and was very disappointed. Too much mayo (predominant flavor), too mushy, and not enough broccoli to soup/mayo ratio. Family couldn't even tell it was broccoli casserole. Sadly, it went into the trash on day 2 because nobody wanted the leftovers.

- 2 tablespoons onions, chopped
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
