Favorite Broccoli CasseroleI have been making this recipe for so many years I don’t even have the recipe any more. I just make it from memory and haven’t measured anything I put in it for years! This is my best attempt at coming up with an accurate recipe!

1 (14 oz) bag frozen chopped broccoli (I use broccoli florets and chop them myself after cooking)
1 cup milk
8 ounces processed cheese spread (I use Velveeta)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (or to taste)
1 sleeve (from 16 oz box) buttery crackers (I use Ritz), crumbled
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
15 buttery crackers, (Ritz), crumbled

In a large saucepan, cook the broccoli according to package directions; drain. Stir in the milk, cheese, butter and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat until cheese is melted, stirring often. Add the sleeve of crumbled crackers and stir to blend. Pour mixture into an 11×7-inch baking dish.

In a small bowl, melt butter in microwave; stir in the crumbled crackers. Sprinkle over top of broccoli mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly. Makes 6 servings.
