Broccoli Cheese Casserole

This Broccoli Cheese Casserole is a favorite side dish in our home! I often add cauliflower if I have some in the fridge. This cheese rich dish is a great feature for June is Dairy Month and the Ritz crackers and butter on top add a great crunch and buttery flavor.

When preparing for my month of June is Dairy Month recipes, I emailed some friends for more recipes and a similar recipe to this showed up in my inbox from my friend Emily. I guess we aren’t the only family that loves this dish!
