This moist bread with a sweet corn flavor can be served as a side dish with any meaty entree. Adding Cheddar cheese helps seal the deal to convert the picky broccoli hater.

I have been making a version of this bread for years. I just wanted to say that I discovered by accident that I had left the butter out once and about 5 minutes after it had been cooking I just added a stick of butter on top and let it finish cooking.(I don't use cheese on top) OMG! I will never make it a different way because this gives the best crispy crust that everyone loved. It really takes it up a notch!

Made this for my picky husband (who literally gags at the smell or taste of broccoli) and he loved it. His exact word: "INCREDIBLE." Every time I make this for company my friends ask for the recipe. They can't believe how their kids gobble up broccoli (and onions too).

Couldn't stop eating it. My husband put a little syrup on top. Our grandson ate one big piece. He loved. I used one 14 oz. box of cornbread mix (that's what I had). It worked out fine.

I made this from the Allrecipes magazine and the kids liked it a lot. A solid kid-friendly side dish but not what I'd make for myself. That said it was easy loved by the kids and wasn't time consuming so that's a win. I'm sure I'll make it again.

This is just crazy good cornbread I used Jiffy corn muffin mix which is already really good and cut the recipe in half. I made it to get my 2-year-old to eat vegetables. I chopped the broccoli and onion really fine to hide them. He liked it but I was not expecting to love it myself! The cheese when lightly browned makes a nice crispy crust on top. Yum!

I omitted the cheese on top the second time around but either way you do it the finished product is great. My husband never ate broccoli until now.

I made this exactly as printed in the magazine minus about 1/2 cup of the chopped onion (Feb/Mar'14). Make sure there are enough people to eat it because it really is best warm! I had over 1/2 a 9x13 pan left. It really is good. I used a chopper to chop up the broccoli for my kids. Would make a great potluck/holiday item and doubtful anyone else would bring something similar!

Would have given 5 stars but I changed it a bit. I don't used pre-packaged food ever. I also use organic. I used a buttermilk recipe from this site used only 2 eggs as there are 2 eggs in other recipe cooked fresh broccoli then followed this recipe. Turned out great. I would have never thought about putting broccoli or onions into corn bread very nice result.

Made a 60 serving version of this for a local shelter using a large steam table size pan from Costco. It was a big hit. The recipe is very forgiving. I used two 24 oz containers of cottage cheese 32 oz bag shredded cheddar (including one third for topping) 4 sticks butter ten of the 8.5 oz cornbread mix five 10 oz packs of frozen broccoli 20 eggs & 35 oz of chopped onions. Baked at 375 for 1 hour and then at 325 for another 30-45 minutes. Cheese topping was overdone so add that late in the bake time. Note that it looks small before cooking but expands to fill the pan to the top.
