1 (10 oz.) can of cream of chicken soup

How to make Broccoli Cheese Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: In a steaming basket, place the broccoli. Steam on the stove for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is fork-tender. When done, take the broccoli from the stove and chop them into bite-sized pieces, then transfer in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Step 3: Add the soup to the broccoli along with the mayonnaise, butter, eggs, onion, salt, and pepper. Stir well, then add 3/4 c. of cheese. Mix again until blended.
Step 4: Into an 8 x 8-inch square baking dish, pour the contents of the bowl and top with the rest of the 3/4 c. cheese and Ritz crackers.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the top is golden.
