This is my favorite broccoli casserole recipe, courtesy of my aunt who lives in South Carolina. She traditionally serves this at Thanksgiving and at a few other family gatherings throughout the year. Aside from the ingredients, what really sets this recipe apart are the Ritz crackers mixed with melted margarine. Enjoy!
