Southern Broccoli Casserole

With Thanksgiving upon us, you've probably seen your share of recipes for lightened-up holiday favorites. This recipe isn't one of them. With tender broccoli in a creamy sauce, tons of cheese and butter and a crunchy cracker topping, this will be one of the first items to disappear from your Thanksgiving table!

 The definition of indulgent - but that's okay around the holidays, right? ;)

Southern Broccoli Casserole
Recipe from Spicy Southern Kitchen

6 cups broccoli florets, steamed
1 can cream of celery soup (original recipe calls for cream of mushroom)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 medium onion, small diced
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cream of celery soup, mayonnaise, butter, eggs, onion salt, pepper, plus 1 cup of shredded cheese. Mix until combined.

Add mixture to a medium greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and top with cracker crumbs.

Bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and allow 10-15 minutes to cool and set.

Tell me: What are you making for Thanksgiving this year?

  1. Wow! That's decadent. Sounds perfect for a cold day though. I'm the baker of the family, so I'm making the dinner rolls and pies.

    1. Yum - I love homemade rolls, especially slathered with butter :)

  2. This looks fabulous, I am seriously starving right now so it's even more so! I had to skip lunch and when I looked at the time I thought it would be better to just wait to eat until dinner and now I am regretting that decision! I will pin this for later! Thanks!

  3. Looks ncie :)
