Cheese Nip Broccoli Casserole

"This recipe is from my cousin, Trudy. We have every Thanksgiving and Christmas, when our families get together. However, I do carry it to church functions all year long. I always get compliments on it. Hope you enjoy!!! By the way, a short cut would be just to mix all the vegetables into the cheese mixture and bake(not layering), then topping with the crushed crackers"

  1. Huge hit! My husband just raved about this. Said two times how good it was! He even went back for seconds and filled his entire plate with it! The cheese crackers really give a nice flavor. I omitted the peas, since I didn't have any on hand. But followed recipe as directed. Will definitely be making this again in our house! Thanks Bobtail for another fantastic recipe!
  2. This was good. We used Goldfish crackers (less than one 6.6 oz pkg). Made my own cream soup. Used Smart Beat mayo (0 g sat fat, 1 (16 oz) pkg broccoli and 1 can sweet peas. I think the less amount of broccoli made the cheese mixture too much. Will use frozen peas next time (if at all) and make the recommended 20 oz. broccoli. Served with Squash, Apple and Onion Soup, bread and salad. Nice vegetarian meal.
