Easy Cheesy Broccoli - Danni Eisert

I’ve always loved broccoli, but my kids…well, they’re kids, and try as I might I couldn’t get them to eat it. One day someone mentioned how everything is better with cheese on it, and this recipe was born.

1 pkg frozen broccoli
½-1 ½ cups cheese (choose the kind you like best)

Place broccoli in a pan. Any kind will work (just don’t use a metal pan if you put this in the microwave). Match the size of pan with the amount of broccoli you want to use and the amount of mouths you have to feed. Top with cheese. Either put it in the microwave (15-20 minutes if it’s still frozen), or a 350E oven for about the same time. (I’ve found that it doesn’t really matter which cooking method you use as long as the cheese is melty enough to get to the bottom.) Voila!!

Optional add ins: We’re still working on finding all the ways we love this veg. I’ve used Lemon Pepper to spice it up a little and the kids really love it.
