This broccoli and cheese casserole is made with fresh broccoli and topped off with buttery Ritz crackers for the perfect crunchy topping!

Ingredients

  • 32 ounces fresh broccoli florets
  • 10 ounces cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper
