Last night we had Big Daddy's parents over for dinner and at the last minute I felt like I didn't have enough food. I whipped this up in matter of minutes and it stole the show. The best thing about this recipe is that it is made with ingredients that everyone has lying around. This is a show stopper...trust me!!!

First you will steam 2-10oz. packages of frozen broccoli. I have to tell you that I NEVER buy the chopped broccoli because I feel like you get a bunch of stems and now florets, so I buy the frozen florets and chop them myself once they are steamed...much better that way. Just sayin'.
While the broccoli is steaming away, chop up a small onion and saute it in some butter until soft.
Mix your steamed broccoli, sauteed onion, 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (I probably used more like 2), and house seasoning. If your mixture is too thick add more mayo until its the consistency you want. It shouldn't be "packy". Pour the mixture into a small casserole dish and top with 1 cup of crushed Ritz crackers. Pour about 1/3 stick of melted butter over the crackers and bake uncovered at 350 for about 20 minutes...just long enough to get those crackers brown and crispy!
You can thank me later!!! Enjoy!!
