My sister made this broccoli casserole years ago and I fell in love.
2 pounds fresh broccoli
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 Cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 Cups crushed cheese crackers
Ahhh… beautiful broccoli.
Cut broccoli up into pieces. My kids are not fans of the stems so I just trim those down as far as they will go. They say they like the tops of the “trees” not the “trunks”. I aim to please.
Bring about an inch of water to a boil.
Add broccoli and the lid and let steam for 3-4 minutes.
Drain broccoli. They should be a deep green.
In a bowl, mix together the cream soup, mayonnaise, cheese and lemon juice..
That looks just right.
Place broccoli in a casserole dish.
Top with the cream soup and cheese mixture.
Spread that around.
Grab a handful of cheese crackers.
Crumble the crackers over the top of the casserole. Grab as many handfulls as you need to nicely cover the top.
Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.
