Side Dish Vegetables

Roasted Cheddar Broccoli

This recipe is from Food Network Magazine.  I’m not sure I am going to renew the magazine.  I get excited when I see it in my mailbox and love looking through it – only to realize that I never have any of those ingredients or the time to make them.  Plus all the recipes are online.  Don’t believe me?  Check it out!   Maybe we are too picky.  I dunno.  I do love that they have some real awesome recipes in it.  I made Chocolate Babka from the magazine, and it looks way better than the one Panera sells.

I would definitely make this again.

Roasted Cheddar Broccoli
yield 4 servings

1 large head of broccoli
3 Tb. olive oil, divided
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (Panko works best – Trader Joe’s carries them and Walmart started carrying them in a box)
1 cup sharp cheddar, grated/shredded
1 bunch of scallions, sliced (on in a pinch, use 1/4 of a red onion diced really finely)
pinch of nutmeg

1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Cut the broccoli into long spears.
2.  In a large bowl, mix 2 Tb. olive oil and the broccoli.  Throw a little salt on there.  Roast on a baking sheet for 15 minutes.
3.  In  a medium bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, cheddar, scallions and nutmeg with the remaining 1 Tb. olive oil.
4.  Sprinkle this on the broccoli and return to the oven for 15 more minutes.
