This is one of our favorite side dishes for the holidays or just anytime. This recipe was handed down from my niece many years ago. We lost her to cancer a couple years back and I always think about her when I prepare this dish.1 (32 ounce) package frozen broccoli cuts, cooked according to package directions 1/2 cup of butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons, melted 1 1/2 sleeves of ritz crackers (can use more), crumbled 1/2 to 3/4 of a 32 ounce package of velveeta cheese, cut in chunks 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper Cook broccoli cuts according to package directions. (I cook mine in a bowl in the microwave covered with saran wrap. Add 1/2 the melted butter, salt and pepper, and the velveeta cheese chunks to the broccoli. Stir to melt. Add the other half of the melted butter to the ritz cracker crumbs. Spray a 2 quart casserole dish and add a layer of the broccoli and cheese on the bottom. Next add a layer of the buttered crumbs. Continue to do this ending with the top covered with the buttered crumbs. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the top is browned. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Everyone that has ever had this loves it if they like broccoli.
