Broccoli Cheese Squares

Broccoli Cheese Squares

Margaret Syrotiak 1

"So incredibly good you will not believe how easy they are to make. A family secret recipe that leaves lots of room for interpretation. We eat these a lot in the summer for dinner with a salad and a loaf of good bread. YUM! But be sure that if adding cooked ingredients, allow them to cool a bit before adding milk and eggs so they don't start to scramble. Eat lukewarm for best flavor or warm."

First time I've logged on to review a recipe. I'm giving it a 5! So many times I make things from this site that call for cheese and you can barely taste it. This is right for us cheddar l...

My husband love this as a side dish to ham! If you use good quality of cheese you won't get the oily and congealed mess a previous rater mentioned. There are indeed times you need to skip gener...

Great recipe. I used it as side dish. Little bit too salty but it's still okay. I find it is good warm or cold but I did not like it as much the next day ( thats just me ). Next time will make t...

Great to make ahead and freeze for later. Bake, cut into squares, place in container or ziploc w/ parchment or wax paper in between layers and freeze

These make a great lunch for my toddler. I used 24oz of broccoli because I had two 12oz bags. I also added 8oz of cheese and decided another 8oz would be overkill - I can't imagine it with 16oz!...

This was cheesy to the point of being oily. The oil was bubbling as I pulled it out of the oven and it congealed as it cooled. I would cut the cheese in half, maybe even 1/4 and it would be pl...
