Reviews for Broccoli Mac & Cheese Bake
"Very tasty! Will definitely make this again and again."
"This was fairly bland for sure. I don't think I'll make this again."
"This is pretty good! I used Ritz crackers. I'll make it again, but probably not for company. Good as a last minute thing. Usually have all of the ingredients on hand!"
"So easy to make and my kids ate all of it. I'll definitely be making this dish again."
"I added 1/2 cup of Parmesan because I only had 2 cups of cheddar. I also added 1 plank of salmon (cooked and shredded). Instead of layering it, I mixed all the ingredients together. And I used garlic butter Keebler crackers. It turned out great!"
