Broccoli Casserole – a delicious and easy side dish for any meal (but perfect for Thanksgiving or the Holidays) – a family favorite recipe!


  • 68 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 10oz can cream of mushroom soup (or homemade – see Notes)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese, divided (more if desired)
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers, roughly crushed 
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Add a steaming basket to a saucepan and fill the bottom with water. Add broccoli. Cover and bring to a boil. Steam until broccoli are very tender/soft – they should almost be falling apart. Drain.
  3. Add broccoli to an 11-inch oval dish (or comparable square baking pan) along with cream of mushroom soup, mayo and cheddar cheese. Stir to combine. 
  4. Cover with crushed crackers and drizzle melted butter on top. 
  5. Place in the oven, middle rack and uncovered, for approx. 30 minutes or until nice and bubbly. 
  6. Remove and let cool slightly before serving.


  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: I like this one!
  • Dairy-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup: we have a tried-and-true recipe for Dairy-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup if you want to sub that in.
  • Mayo: feel free to use what you prefer – we do have a homemade mayo HERE!
  • Dairy-Free: to make this dairy-free use a dairy-free cream of mushroom soup (like the one linked above), dairy-free cheese and vegan butter.
  • Gluten-Free: to make this gluten-free use a gluten-free version of Ritz crackers (or something similar).
  • Storage: store leftover in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
