Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

This is yet another slow cooker recipe which I decided to try in anticipation The Veggie Mom becoming the Working Veggie Mom.  By the way, hubris is a heartless bitch and she will ruin your chances of returning to work if you get cocky and start preparing in advance for a job you do not yet have.  I hate hubris.  

The Ingredients
20 ounces frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
10 3/4 ounces cream of celery soup
1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cups onion, diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoons ground black pepper
16 saltine crackers, crushed

 Combine all except the saltines in the crock of your slow cooker

Cook on low for 6 hours

The first time I attempted this recipe I put the crackers on the top for the last 15 minutes of the cooking time, but that left me with some VERY mushy crackers on top.  So, the second time I added the crackers to each plate as I served it.  Nice and crunchy!!

  1. Thanks for the tip at the end. I'll keep it in mind while adding the crackers. Sounds a very healthy recipe. :-)
