So we’ve established this week that your green bean casserole has been swiped out from under you – someone RSVP’ed first, and you’re without your signature dish. Brussels aren’t really your thing. So what’s a person to do?
Go the broccoli route.
This roasted broccoli is wicked easy to put together and the combo of cheese, bread crumbs, and lemon make it savory and tangy at the same time. And, most of the ingredients involved you probably already have in your pantry, saving you a trip to the store. Nothing fancy here – just some simple ingredients making some crunchy savory broccoli.
1 lb broccoli
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Directions: Basically, just take all the ingredients above and mix well on a cookie sheet (s/p = salt and pepper to taste. Under is better because you can add a little salt later on!). Then, roast at 400 degrees until browned – this should take about 15-20 minutes, but check it because oven temperatures can fluctuate. Serve warm – and if you want, you can spritz a little extra lemon juice over the top upon serving.
Serve at your Thanksgiving to make an instant hit. We think even the kids MIGHT try this one! Next week’s topic? We’re giving dessert a whole new meaning, moving away from pies and on to something bigger and better!
