Cheesey Broccoli Casserole
The other night I made a crockpot roast pork with apples and needed a good veggie side dish. I've been on this broccoli kick lately but didn't want to have it steamed AGAIN. :) I decided to make a casserole.
About a head and 1/2 of broccoli (I used some from the large bag they sell a Sams)
3" block of velvetta, melted
1/4 cup English white cheese, melted *you can omit this if you don't have it*
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
2 Tbl butter
1 tsp thyme
1tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 can cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1/2 tsp pepper
20-25 keebler buttery crackers (the little round ones)
In a large pan put chicken broth and water and add the broccoli, cook until almost done and still nice and green. While that cooking put cheeses and butter into a micro safe bowl and melt until nice and creamy. Add the cream, 1/2 of the soup , and the yogurt. Wish until all incorporated. Drain broccoli put into casserole dish, pour cheese mixture over and stir gently, make a space and add the rest of the soup and wish around until blended in the bottom, stir one more time gently to incorporate. Crumble crakers on top to fully cover mixture. Bake in 375 oven for about 30 minutes until bubbly and crackers and nice and brown. Serves about 7-8 good portions and the family will love it.
This is what it looked like before the oven. You can see the crackers.
