'Polonaise' means to top with crumbs and is traditionally used on vegetables like broccoli. It's an almost instant way to turn a rather ordinary vegetable into a special offering.

Directions

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli, cover, and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes depending on thickness. Drain broccoli and place into a serving dish.

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter; stir in bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese, and cook until the crumbs are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the browned crumbs onto the steamed broccoli, and toss gently. Sprinkle the broccoli with chopped egg.

Made the Broccoli Polanaise today. Thought it was a quick easy side dish to make. Used Italian bread crumbs and real butter - made it very rich. Would make again. Read More

I enjoyed this. It does need some seasoning so i added a spicy salt blend. I also dry toated some panko crumbs instead of using the butter and added some light butter to the dish afterwards. Read More

This recipe was just ok for us. It it is a little on the dry side. We did like the broccoli/egg combination so when I try it again once the broccoli is steamed I'm going to add some butter to it and then add the topping. Read More

After reading the reviews I decided to make it "as is" with only one addition. I added a teaspoon or so of Johnny's Garlic Spread and seasoning. These are not items I would have prepared together but it turned out really good! Read More

I wanted to make something different with some fresh broccoli. This certainly fit the bill but it was surprisingly good. I increased the seasoning in the bread crumbs. My husband wasn't a fan (he thinks gooey cheese sauce is required for a broccoli dish) so I had leftovers. It reheated fine in the microwave and I used it as a main dish for lunch. I'll make it again (but take out his part before adding the bread crumbs and egg.):) Read More
