Are you looking for the best ever broccoli casserole recipe? This fresh broccoli casserole with 4 ingredients is cheesy, buttery, crunchy and perfect. Fresh broccoli, butter, Ritz crackers and American cheese combine for a family-pleasing side dish.
Steam broccoli until just barely fork tender (do not over cook); drain.
Return drained broccoli to the warm pan; add 2 Tablespoons butter and Velveeta. Cover with the lid but do not turn heat back on. The warmth of the pan will soften the cheese and butter. After 5 minutes, remove lid and stir until melted and blended.
Pour into a greased 2 quart or 9x9 inch baking dish.
Cover with crushed butter crackers.
Melt remaining 6 Tablespoons of butter. Pour over buttered crackers on casserole.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown.
