Slow Cooker Broccoli
On the menu today is a recipe that I found several years ago in one of my many Taste of Home Annual Cookbooks. Slow Cooker Broccoli became a fast family favorite. The first time I made this recipe I was looking for a vegetable dish that I could serve with our Thanksgiving Dinner, one that preferably didn’t take up anymore room in my already over crowded oven. When I saw this recipe, it sort of jumped out at me.
This recipe for Slow Cooker Broccoli is made with frozen chopped broccoli, one can of cream of celery soup, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, chopped onion, Worcestershire sauce and buttery-crackers. Sounds good doesn’t it. This recipe is not only super delicious, its fast and easy. Everything goes into a slow cooker and baked for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Perfect to serve for Thanksgiving or for any dinner when a tasty vegetable will be much appreciated.

After it’s debut a few years ago, this delicious slow cooker broccoli bake recipe makes an appearance on our Thanksgiving table each and every year.
