Broccoli Casserole

broccoli casserole with cheez-its

I generally make this old-fashioned broccoli casserole only 2X a year – Thanksgiving and Christmas. But when one of my babies asked for it the other day, I thought, ‘Why not!”. So – here it is.

Level of Difficulty: Easy Time Required: Prep Time – 20min; Cook Time – 20 min

Ingredients for 8+ servings:

2 1/2 lbs broccoli (cut into equal size florets)

6 oz cheez-its

12 ozs freshly grated extra sharp cheddar cheese

1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup

1 t salt

Special Equipment and Other Items Needed:


Preparing Broccoli Casserole:

Steam the broccoli until VERY CRISP tender. This should take a short amount of time. When the broccoli turns bright green it is probably done. Remember it will cook for a bit in the oven too.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

When the broccoli is just steamed add to the casserole dish. Stir in the can of cream of mushroom/chicken soup. Add the salt. Add the freshly grated cheese. Crumble the cheez-its and add to the top.

Cook at 450 degrees until hot through about 20 minutes.

    I’m going to make this for the kids for dinner tonight, but just wanted to double check the temperature. Is 450 degrees correct?

    • Yes, it seems high but it is not cooked long and if you make it all at the same time, it will be going in the oven warm already. You just want it to get hot and bubbly and for the cheese to melt. I hope you enjoy it! I will be making it at Thanksgiving!! – Melissa
