Foodie Friday…Broccoli Cheese Casserole

never any leftovers here…

Okay…so it’s not really a “foodie” item, but Broccoli Cheese Casserole evokes Thanksgiving memories, as well as the memory of my, recently deceased, Aunt Lorrie. She wasn’t much of a cook, according to her children (our mom wasn’t so great either!), but this is always a favorite, with rarely any leftovers, at the family holiday meals. So, in honor of Aunt Lorrie, (thanks to cousin Beth for the recipe) here you go…

10 oz. broccoli (you can just buy the frozen)
1/2 can cream of mushroom soup (Campbell’s usually..I just had this TJ version)
1 egg
1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese
1/4 cup of mayo
1 tsp. of dried onion flakes
salt and pepper
1/2 cup of ritz crackers, crumbled
few dabs of butter

Throw everything, except the crackers, together and mix well.  Put it into a casserole dish and top with crumbled Ritz crackers.  So easy!! Dot the top with butter and cook in a 350 degree oven for about 1/2 hour…or until bubbly golden brown (note from Beth…FYI – I usually quadruple this recipe for your Thanksgiving dinner)

My mouth is watering just looking at this picture. It’s such a 1950’s type recipe with the onion soup, Ritz, etc… but it’s a winner at every dinner table!

Bon Appetit!
