Broccoli RITZ casserole

I tasted this dish in one of our work picnics. It was cheesy, and creamy and sure enough my son liked it. Instead of bread crumbs RITZ crackers are used for the crumbly topping. Ritz crachers are buttery, melt in your mouth cookies similar to monacco biscuits back home.
Any cheese that melt well will work here. I used velveeta which is what the original recipe calls for. I am not a big cheese but this dish will please the cheese lovers. I used the whole sleeve of ritz, which had 36 crackers. I guess you can use only 3/4th of it and save some for tea:))

Get ready:

  • 2 cup broccoli florets steamed with a little salt.
  • 1 cup velveeta cheese cubed
  • 1 packet RITZ crackers
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp chilli  powder/ milagapodi


  • Crush the crackers in azip lock bag and keep aside
  • Preheat oven to350 F
  • In a caserrole grease the bottom.
  • add broccoli and spread it evenly. sprinkle milaga podi on top of broccoli according to taste
  • layer the top of broccoli with cheese and then crackers
  • add melted butter on top of the above 2 and bake for 20 mins till the cheese melts.
  • In you are making a big batch, repeat the layers and bake.
