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
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.
