Ritz Cracker Roasted Broccoli with Spicy Crumbs Recipe

Serving Size: 4

Try adding a bit of crispiness to your broccoli with Ritz Crackers.


  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • 1 cup crushed Ritz Crackers
  • 0.25 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Pound pounds broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets
  • Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  In a mini food processor, pulse garlic and crackers into crumbs. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the crumb mixture and cook over moderate heat, stirring until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Let cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the broccoli with the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and season with salt. Spread the broccoli on a baking sheet and roast for about 15 minutes, turning once, until tender and browned in spots.  Spread mustard on one side of the broccoli and press into crumbs. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with any remaining crumbs.
