Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove, sliced
  • 1 Cup crushed Ritz Crackers
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Pounds broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets
  • Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions

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.

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.

Cracker Shopping Tip

Stocking up on no-cook items like cheese, nuts, olives, crackers, and dips will cut down on prep time and help ensure you have enough food for any unexpected guests.

Cracker Cooking Tip

When preparing appetizers try to avoid repetition of similar foods and flavors - aim for variety in textures, colors, and cooking methods.
