broccoli casserole

This is the one thing I bring to all of our family’s holiday gatherings. And I always get compliments on how good it is. It’s about time I share this delicious recipe with you.

Broccoli Casserole

  • 30 oz. frozen or fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 can cream celery soup
  • 4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pkg saltines (or ritz crackers), crushed
  • 3-4 Tbsp butter, melted

Cook the broccoli according to package directions, or steam until tender; Drain. In a large bowl, mix together the broccoli, cream of celery soup, cheddar, mayo, and eggs. Pour mixture into an ungreased 8×8 baking pan. In another bowl, mix the crushed cracker crumbs with the melted butter until thoroughly combined. Spread the crumb mixture over the top of the casserole. Bake at 325* for 25 minutes, or until top is nicely browned.

** Note: One time I wanted to make this, but didn’t have any cheese on hand. So, out of sheer desperation, I opened a box of Mac n’ Cheese and used almost an entire packet of powdered cheese. I just mixed it into the bowl along with the mayo and eggs, and cooked as usual. It turned out very good! Nobody could taste the difference.
