  • 1 Microwave
  • 1 Baking Dish
  • 1 Sauce Pan
  • 1 Casserole Dish


  • 28 ounces Frozen Chopped Broccoli
  • 8 ounces Velveeta Original Loaf
  • 1 sleeve RITZ Crackers crushed
  • ½ stick Butter divided
  • 2 tablespoons Water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Cook broccoli according to package instructions, remove any and all water, and set aside.
  • While broccoli cooks; in medium saucepan melt ¼ stick butter with the block of Velveeta cheese until smooth. Then, add broccoli and mix well. Place the broccoli mixture into a lightly oiled casserole dish.
  • In small bowl (using the microwave), melt ¼ stick butter, add water, and mix into cracker crumbs with fork. Sprinkle cracker crumb mixture over the broccoli and cheese. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until crumbs are golden brown.


  • Fresh Broccoli - You can use fresh broccoli for this reicpe. You will need to rinse and chop the fresh broccoli. Then blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes or until just al dente. Drain and immediately place in cold water to stop the cooking process. Then drain and set to the side.
  • Cheese - I have never made this casserole without using Velveeta. So I can't tell you how it will turn out with any other type of cheese.
  • Crumb Topping - The buttery RITZ crackers are what make it so delicious. Don't skimp on these; however, one sleeve is enough.
