    Delicious! I didn’t have all the ingredients so to make up for broccoli I added zucchini and since I did not have cheddar I used blue cheese which was as good

    Very yummy! I used some mixed frozen vegetables and potato chips as the topping instead of the Panko bread crumbs and it was delicious.

    Great! I added a little nutmeg for a spicy flavor. For sure I will make it again.

    It was Yummly. ;) My wife and 10 year old daughter said it felt like we ate at a fancy restaurant! Thank you once again for the great easy to fallow recipes.

    Great. Kids loved it too. For some reason couldn't figure out why there were multiple grated cheddar and melted butter steps without specific directions but winged it and it was tasty.
    Great dish - I had some broccoli I was trying to get rid of and needed a simple dish with items already in the pantry - this was perfect!

    I over cooked it and was still delicious (just a little dry). Made it as an Easter side dish and everyone raved about it! I looking forward to making it again and remembering to set the timer!

    I liked the flavours and the fact the dish was centered around broccoli. I ended up reducing the cheese and breadcrumbs.
