  • 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.


Some people don’t like using velveeta cheese and you could replace it with another kind like cheddar but I don’t think it is nearly as good. Everyone that has ever had this loves it if they like broccoli.
