Every family has those one or two dishes that has to be on the menu for every holiday. For my family, this is it. My brother-in-law created this recipe at least twenty five years ago for Christmas dinner and we’ve been having it ever since. We have branched a little, and we now have it for just about every holiday, not just Christmas. Once you make it you’ll see how buttery, creamy and delicious it is. I have no doubt that it will become your family favorite also.
4 -10oz boxes of Chopped Broccoli
3/4 Lb American Cheese
1 Sleeve Ritz Crackers
1 Stick Butter
Cook the broccoli following the manufacturers directions. Drain. In a large mixing bowl, add the hot chopped broccoli, half the butter and the American cheese. Mix until the cheese and butter are completely melted. Add the salt to taste.
Pour mixture into a greased casserole dish. Crush the Ritz crackers. Melt the remaining half of the butter and mix with the crackers. Sprinkle the cracker mixture over the broccoli.
Bake in a 350º oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the cracker topping is brown and the middle is warm.
