    One of the many side dishes I made for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was devoured! It was a huge success! There’s a lot of steps, but it’s well worth it. This is officially in the rotation, although I probably won’t prepare it often, as it’s quite a heavy dish. But in any event, give this recipe a try, I’m sure you’ll like it! Hope this helps.

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