I have been making this dish for years and the key is to use a 9x13 baking dish instead of the pie plate. We sometimes use pizza cheese too instead of just the cheddar. Read More

This could be great but needs a little work. Next time I will sauté the onions first and add more seasoning. Also I cooked it for 40 minutes and it was not enough. Next time I might make it a bit smaller and add a bit less milk. Potatoes and sautéed mushrooms would have been a nice addition. This is a great base for many combinations. Can t wait to try it again. Read More

Great and easy too! I have made this quite a few times and I have some adjustments that I now prefer to make each time. I chop an entire onion and saute it first in 1/2 Tbl. butter along with 1 tsp. minced garlic (the onions don't cook well enough for me otherwise and garlic adds nice flavor) then add them to the mixture. I lower the fat a bit by using only 2 cups of cheese (none really needs to be sprinkled on top) - another note - skim milk works well in this recipe. Be sure and thaw (then drain) the broccoli well or there will be too much liquid in the pie. I also add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to the mixture before pouring into the pie plate. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I thought this recipe was very good although I made a few modifications. To bump up the healthiness of the recipe I skipped the cheese on the top (there is plenty of cheese cooked in) and I used whole-wheat baking mix. Also there is no need to grease the pie pan. This recipe does not stick to the pan. I would suggest adding pepper or some other spice to the ingredients since it's just a tad bland. Also as a note the broccoli does not have to be thawed completely before you bake this. Just put the frozen broccoli in the microwave on "thaw" while you are stirring the batter and it will be plenty thawed by the time you are ready for it. As a final note you might want to try cooking this on the stovetop for a quicker cooking time. Just put enough of the mixture in the frying pan to cover the bottom and cook kind of like a pancake.

Even my boyfriend who's not a broccoli fan enjoyed this dish. I used fresh broccoli and sauteed it first with the onion. I used skim milk and only one cup of cheddar to make the dish healthier. Read More

Loved it! I used a 9X13 so should have reduced the baking time-a tad scorched. Will add some spices (pepper garlic?) Read More

This was really good! It is a great simple recipe that my 7 and 3 year old LOVE! I did saute the onions in a little butter and added a little garlic crushed red pepper parsley and italian seasoning. Then added that mixture to the broccoli mixture- but besides that I followed the recipe. Thanks you for a great recipe! Read More

This was a great recipe. I modified it for 15 servings in a 9x13 casserole dish for Easter. Everyone loved it. Especially the 8-year olds! Read More

My changes: first I used a 9" square pan and cooking spray. Since it's a fat-fest anyway cook 4-6 slices of bacon until crispy and crumble. I used a full cup of coarsely chopped onion and 3 cloves of garlic (there can never be too much garlic) - sauteed in bacon drippings until onions are opaque. Add a hefty couple pinches of red pepper flakes. I cut the cheddar in half and substituted Mexican Cotija because this recipe NEEDS salt. Plus a couple generous pinches of coarse ground black pepper. It took about 5 minutes longer to cook. More Cotija went on top for browning. Turned out flavorful and awesome. Good for breakfast the next day! Read More
