broccoli casserole

broccoli 2

i know what you’re thinking: what is broccoli doing here? this is a baking blog! and more often than that, it’s a bacon blog! i know, i know, it’s a little jarring – and even i had some trepidation after our last look at casseroles, but you’ll just have to trust me. why? well, because this broccoli casserole is full of delicious things and topped with crumbled and toasted ritz crackers.

got your attention, didn’t i? this casserole has made an appearance at nearly every family function for the past 5 or 6 years, since my sister-in-law first made it and blew us all away with how delicious it was. it’s a great way to get something green on your plate, especially if you aren’t a big fan of veggies. oddly enough, i love vegetables, but given the choice between raw broccoli and an indulgent cheesy broccoli casserole, i’m going with the casserole. it pretty much defeats the purpose of eating vegetables in the first place, but i think i can live with that.

as far as preparation, the dish is pretty much idiot-proof. pour a bunch of ingredients in a casserole dish, top with crumbled crackers and a drizzle of melted butter, and bake. serve to friends you love, or just grab a fork and dig in. isn’t it nice to see how we’ve streamlined and simplified the casserole process since its heydays?

  1. This casserole will be making its debut within my very large family at a potluck tomorrow night. Can’t wait to try it.

    ooh, I have an excess of broccoli right now. Is that mushroom soup you mention canned cream of mushroom soup?

    My husband still hasn’t developed a liking for broccoli despite all the healthy benefits attributed to it so I’m definitely going to try this (new to me) approach. ( I got my son to eat broccoli a long time ago by telling him that he could pretend that he was the “Jolly Green Giant” eating whole trees (brocolli spears). It worked like a charm and he’s been chowing them down ever since. )

  5. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this fantastic blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will share this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
