Oven-Roasted Broccoli in Foil

Rating: Unrated
A simple and quick way to cook broccoli that even picky eaters love. Best part: I don't even use dishes to prepare it (all mixing and cooking happens in the foil). Drizzle with olive oil and additional Parmesan cheese before serving.

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Rating: Unrated
My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. Mmmmmmm!

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Rating: Unrated
This is a great casserole that I threw together one day when a friend requested Broccoli au Gratin for her birthday dinner. This is a great idea for those who aren't big fans of bread crumbs. Also, the eggs can be taken out for a great sauce and using skim milk and fat-free cheese works well, too. It's basically a great recipe that can be easily altered according to taste. Enjoy!
