Reserve 2 tablespoons cheese, sprinkle remaining cheese and broccoli onto meat mixture to within 1/2 inch of edge. Coarsely break remaining 12 crackers, sprinkle over broccoli, pressing lightly into meat. Starting at short end, roll up like jelly-roll fashion, using wax paper to help roll, seal ends.
