Mom’s Broccoli Casserole

Mother always made this hot dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas and other special family dinners. When my sisters and I plan a dinner, this dish is still on the menu. I've tried many broccoli casseroles over the years, but none are quite as good as Mom's.— Beth Osborne Skinner, Bristol, Tennessee

    I found this recipe several years ago. My daughter just called me to ask about the recipe. I told her it was on the taste of home website. When I looked and found it, it only had three stars. I don’t use the cheese crackers. I have used butter crackers or bread crumbs mixed in the melted butter. If I don’t have one or the other on hand I make my on bread crumbs. But to me this is the best broccoli casserole out there. You can also add chicken in it if you like. My son made it that way for his wife. It’s always made for Christmas dinner. Try it. I also cook my broccoli til it real soft so when I mix it there isn’t that many big chunks. It really good. This mom loves it!!

    To cut back on calories and fat, sub full fat mayo with light. Also, to cut sodium and fat, make your own white sauce w/ skim or 1% milk and use 2% Cheddar cheese instead of full fat. Cut cracker amount in half or omit. 42 grams of fat is outrageous, even if you are eating ONLY this for an entire meal.
