Old School Broccoli Casserole

This is another one of my mom’s recipes for something that always seems to make an appearance around the holidays.  While it may not be the best thing for you, it’s really tasty and easy to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 (14 oz.) bags frozen broccoli florets
  • 32 oz. Velveeta cheese, melted
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste
  • Ritz crackers, crushed – for topping

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Blanch the frozen broccoli in boiling water, strain and set aside in a large mixing bowl
  • Melt the Velveeta and butter – you can either do this in a sauce pan over medium heat or in the microwave
  • Pour the cheese and butter mixture over the cooked broccoli and stir
  • Season the beaten eggs with salt, pepper and garlic powder, add it to the mixture and combine well
  • Pour the mixture into a large casserole dish and top with the crushed Ritz crackers
  • Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes – 1 hour (cover with aluminum foil for half the time)
