One of the fun things about Thanksgiving is sharing food, exchanging recipes and discovering delightful new dishes!
 
I want to share an absolutely fabulous broccoli casserole (thank you, Jerry!) that I enjoyed this Thanksgiving. It's so good people were going back for seconds and thirds.
                                                            
 
 
 
Broccoli Cheez-It Casserole                                                   
 
Ingredients:
 
1 can mushroom soup
2 boxes chopped broccoli (or one 16 oz bag broccoli florets) cooked and drained well
1 egg
1 cup mayo
I tablespoon chopped onions
1 and 1/2 cups cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed Cheez-it crackers, divided (crush with rolling pin)
1/2 stick melted butter
 
Directions:
 
Simple mix the soup, the broccoli, the egg, the mayo, the onions, the cheddar cheese and HALF of the crushed Cheez-its and place in a greased 13 x 9 inch casserole dish.  Top with the remaining Cheez-Its.  Drizzle on 1/2 stick melted butter.
 
Bake uncovered, 350 for 30-45 minutes.  Enjoy! This is the perfect covered dish to bring to a party, or just to enjoy at home. I have never seen people so exited over broccoli and it was definitely one of the hits of the dinner. I hope you try it, I think you will love it.
