Total Time 45 mins
Servings 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 16 oz Velveeta cheese cut into small cubes no larger than 1" in size
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 sleeve Ritz Crackers crushed
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9X13 baking dish by spraying the bottom and sides with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Boil the broccoli florets in salted water for 3 minutes, drain them, and put them into a large mixing bowl.
  • Season the broccoli with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Stir the Velveeta Cheese into the broccoli until fully incorporated and all the cheese is melted.
  • Pour the broccoli cheese mixture into the casserole dish and distribute evenly. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar evenly on top of the broccoli.
  • Mix the crushed ritz crackers with the melted butter then sprinkle on the top of the casserole. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheeses are bubbly. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Notes

This can be stored for 5 days in the fridge or for up to 3 months in the freezer. It is good reheated in the oven or even better, this casserole reheats really well in the air fryer - just like fresh! Just fill a small glass bowl or casserole dish with the leftovers and pop it in the air fryer for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees. The crackers will be crunchy again and the broccoli tender and cheesy!
