  • Pour 1 or 2 tablespoons of water into a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Place the broccoli florets and chopped broccoli into the saucepan with the water, cover, and cook over medium heat until thawed, about 5 minutes. Drain off the water, and stir the cream cheese into the hot broccoli. Spread the broccoli mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  • Mix the bread crumbs with butter in a bowl, and spread over the broccoli in an even layer. Sprinkle the top with almonds, and bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned and the dish is bubbling, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

from rd4565 My original recipe is for 4x this and I made an error in converting it. The cream cheese should be 12 oz not 8 oz. Sorry for the error. Read More

I really enjoyed this. I only used the one bag of broccoli florets and made my own bread crumbs from whole wheat bread. This dish was very good and I plan on making this alot. It was very good leftover too. My hubby liked it too. Read More
