Recipe of The Week, April 29: Broccoli Gratin

  My family loves broccoli with cheese sauce, but AI was hoping to find a recipe that I could cook in the oven and not have to be making a sauce at the last minute while I was trying to get the rest of dinner on the table. I found this one, and they absolutely love it. It's a winner.

                 

Broccoli Gratin

8 servings

prep: 15 minutes
cook: 26 minutes


2 (16 oz) packages fresh broccoli florets (I used 1 head broccoli)
1 ½ cups mayonnaise (can use low-fat if desired)
1 cup (4 oz) shredded cheddar cheese (can use low fat)
1 (3 oz) package shredded Parmesan cheese
4 green onions, sliced
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard (one time I was out of Dijon, so I used 1 teaspoon dry mustard)
3 Tablespoons Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Arrange florets in a steamer basket over boiling wter. Cover and steam for 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender, (or steam in microwave). Drain well

  2. Arrange florets in a lightly greased 2 qt baking dish.

  3. Stir together mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients. Spoon over florets, and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

  4. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

This is also very good combined with cauliflower.

Do you have a favorite recipe for broccoli to share?

The recipe looks good.  Good for us that all the family likes broccoli...I like it raw with ranch dressing, cooked, plain or with rice and cheese added in.

Sounds good. We all like broccoli, never added cheese to it though.

 I would love this and maybe my dd, we are both avid broccoli lovers, but the fellows can't stand it.

I would make this if I could replace the mayo w/ something else. I hate Mayo.
