Thanksgiving Tried & True #4 -- vegetable side dish
For today’s recipe, I thought I would share one of our family’s favorite Thanksgiving side dishes. My sister-in-law Dawn traditionally brings this broccoli dish to our family Thanksgivings. Some years she brings two of these casseroles and she seldom has any to take home. It is that much of a favorite!
DAWN'S BROCCOLI CASSEROLE
1 16-oz. pkg. frozen broccoli cuts, cooked
Chopped onion to taste
Shredded cheddar to taste
1 roll Ritz (or similar) crackers, crushed
1 stick (or much less, if I am preparing this) margarine, melted
If using onion, saute´it in some of the margarine. Make layers of broccoli, onion, and shredded cheddar in a casserole dish. (1.5 quart would be fine, maybe even 1 quart.) Combine the crushed crackers and melted margarine and spread over the top of the vegetables. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
