Looking for a quick crowd pleaser? Look no further!
Rachel and the girls whipped this one up yesterday, adapted from a Paula Deen recipe. With two little ones underfoot, complicated recipes are generally out. Throw in a time crunch and quick becomes even more imperative.
So check out this recipe:
Quick and Easy Broccoli-Cheese-Ritz Casserole For Christmas Eve
- 2 10 ounce packages of broccoli
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar
- 1 10 34 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 2 lightly beaten eggs
- 2 cups crushed buttery crackers
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Spray a 13 X 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix everything together except for Ritz crackers and butter, Pour into the baking dish, top with crackers and drizzle evenly with melted butter. Bake for 30 minutes.
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!
I have an almost identical recipe that I and my now-grown girls have been making for the past twenty years for pretty much every family dinner. My recipe doesn't call for eggs, though, and I'm wondering if that's the solution to the sometimes runny sauce. Definitely worth trying. (My recipe also calls for chopped pimentos or finely chopped sweet red peppers for color contrast.)
Am enjoying your recipes and the snippets about Amish life. Keep up the good work!!
Thanks, Heather...the egg definitely keeps the casserole "together"...I'll have to experiment with the chopped pimentos, sounds good!
