Broccoli Casserole Recipe
2 packages frozen chopped broccoli (or l big bag)
1 stick margarine
2 cups grated cheddar cheese (or Velveeta)
1/4 pound Ritz crackers, crushed
salt to taste
1 teaspoon curry powder, optional
Cook broccoli according to package directions. Drain.
Pour drained broccoli back into cooking pan and salt to taste.
Stir in cheese and 1/2 of the margarine until melted. Pour into buttered casserole.
Melt remaining margarine; stir in crackers.
Pour cracker mixture over broccoli and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
The original recipe doesn’t call for curry powder, but I like that flavor with the broccoli. My friend, Diane C. gave me that idea.
Also, I’ve used saltine crackers, cheese crackers etc. Any of them work fine. This is usually a Thanksgiving staple because you can make it the day before, place the buttered cracker crumbs in a zip lock bag and put them on top prior to baking.
Also, you can use frozen mixed vegetables instead of broccoli.
