Broccoli with Parmesan Crumb Topping

1 Comment

Here is an easy way to prepare Broccoli that even the kids enjoy.  I mix Italian seasoned breadcrumbs with melted butter and grated Parmesan cheese and top on blanched broccoli and finish in the oven to get a golden brown color.

Broccoli with Parmesan Crumb Topping

Serves 6

1 bunch broccoli, washed and cut into smaller pieces
1 inch water
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/4 cup seasoned Progresso bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese

Put the broccoli in a covered pot with an inch of water and seasoned with salt.  Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low, cover and steam for about 10 minutes until it is a nice dark green.
Drain the broccoli and transfer to a baking dish.  Melt the butter and combine with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Sprinkle over the broccoli.  Bake at 325-350 for 15 minutes until the crumb topping is golden brown and the cheese melts a little.  Enjoy.  If you wish sprinkle more freshly grated Parmesan cheese and sprinkle some lemon juice over the dish.
