My Thanksgiving Contribution

This year, my mom & I contributed the YUMMIEST dish to our Thanksgiving spread…RITZ Broccoli Casserole!  I LOVE broccoli, but I’m NOT a fan of broccoli & cheese and that’s what my mom originally wanted to take.  So, after a little recipe searching on the Kraft Foods website {my FAVORITE!!!!}, I found a casserole I knew would be a HIT!  Let’s face it….ANYTHING with RITZ is bound to be good!!!!


3 pkg. (10 oz. each) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained

3/4 lb.  (12 oz.) VELVEETA, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

36 RITZ Crackers, coarsely crushed (about 1-1/2 cups), divided

1/4 cup  (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted

***TeamCarroll4 version:  we used the refrigerated broccoli florets & chopped ‘em up.  We also added more crackers based on some of the reviews we read on the website….we added 1 sleeve {crushed} to the broccoli & about 1-1/2 sleeve{s} for the topping.***

First we chopped the broccoli. 


Then we mixed it together with a sleeve of crushed RITZ…


And then mixed in the cheese.


We took the cracker/butter combo…


… and spread evenly over the top.   


Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until heated through. 


This is one broccoli cheese casserole that gets my “thumbs-up” seal of approval!!



  1. Can't wait to try this for Thanksgiving!! Thank you!

  2. I took this casserole to a Christmas party last night, and it was a BIG hit! I'm not normally one to cook as I'm a 25 year old newly wed who hasn't ever done much cooking. This casserole was so easy for me, though! I'm making your crock pot potato soup right now! I'll definitely be a frequent visitor of your blog. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. This wasnt nearly cheesy enough. I had many people comment on that which made me kind of sad. I may reattempt it this Thanksgiving but will double the cheese
