  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir the broccoli florets, cream of chicken soup, and 1 tablespoon softened butter together in a 9x13-baking dish until the broccoli is coated with the soup. Pack lightly to form a flat surface. Layer about half the slices of processed cheese food atop the broccoli mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the dish from the oven; stir to blend the melted cheese into the broccoli mixture. Top with the remaining processed cheese food. Top with the crushed buttery round crackers.
  5. Return dish to oven and bake until the added cheese begins to melt, about 15 minutes more. Allow the casserole to cool and thicken slightly before serving, at least 15 minutes.

When I make this casserole, I use shredded sharp cheddar instead of Velveeta and I use more butter to drizzle over the top to make the Ritz crackers even more crispy. Always disappears. NOTE: This is good with a broccoli stir fry mix, too.

It would have had more flavor with a cheddar cheese instead of processed.

This is almost the exact recipe I grew up with. Still to this day I crave mom mom's broccoli and cheese casserole. The difference that we do is add 2 eggs beaten, use cream of mushroom soup, 2 tablespoons of sour cream. Cook veggies in microwave for 5... strain. Then mix it all together and bake for 35 min at 350. It is delicious!

Can someone tell me if we are to use water in this recipe?

Turned out good just a bit too much cheese. Will try mixing with cheddar next time.

This recipe is really good except I only used half of the cheese it suggested. If I had used the suggested amount it would have been way too much.

My kids, nor myself eat broccoli but my cousin brought this over and it was a hit. Not one bite left. I made it last night and once again, not one bite left. To the reader asking about adding water, No I just melted the cheese, cream of chicken soup and butter together and then poured over the broccoli and threw it in the over. I used garlic flavored ritz style cracker because that is all I had. This has to be the easiest dish next to green bean casserole. Good luck and enjoy
