What a way to put silk stockings and high heels on broccoli! The croutons (I pulsed them in the food processor to rough crumbs) add great flavor and the broccoli (I used fresh and blanched it for just a couple of minutes) stayed a vibrant green. Since my croutons already had sufficient butter in them I didn’t add the second drizzle of butter the recipe called for. Rich and flavorful, this dressed up broccoli is worth the extra preparation it requires.



Great way to takes plain 'ol broccoli to a whole new level! I used a steam in bag of broccoli and cut the amount of butter in half. Next time I might add a little grated Parmesan cheese or shredded cheddar, but honestly this was great as is and perfect for a last minute side dish!



I made this even easier by using a frozen steamable bag of broccoli (I knocked a minute off the microwaving time to ensure a bit of bite). I also couldn't make myself use 1/2C butter (I halved the recipe), so I used a bit less than 1/4C and it was plenty. I may try to use even less next time just to save some calories. We only had seasoned croutons and they added some nice flavor. I used GOYA Adobo Seasoning for the seasoned salt. THANKS for the recipe!
