5 Ingredient Broccoli Divine Recipe
For as long as I can remember, this 5 ingredient broccoli divine recipe has been part of my family’s holiday menu. It makes for an incredibly delicious (some might even call it ‘divine’) vegetable side dish.
I’m so excited to share this family recipe with you today. It’s a comforting dish, when I think of it, I immediately think of the holidays – Thanksgiving and Christmas – broccoli divine is always present! Broccoli is topped with cheddar and crispy buttery crumbles, and is then baked to perfection. It’s also a recipe I HAD to include in my cookbook Fast & Easy Five Ingredient Recipes: A Cookbook For Busy People (the book is on sale on Amazon right now! AND in the book I also share my favorite mashed potatoes recipe, it’s definitely worth purchasing the book before Thanksgiving for all the awesome recipes in there, and they’re all super easy!)
While I was growing up, my mother taught my three sisters and I how to make this dish. Now, no matter where we spend our holidays (with our new in-laws or at family gatherings), whenever we send one another pictures of the spread, you can always spot this dish in the background. Our holidays would just not be complete without it. Do you have dishes like that? Dishes that just MAKE the holiday special? I’d love to hear what your family dishes are!
Over the next few weeks I have a bunch of really great holiday recipes I cannot wait to share with you. AND, I’m always updating my facebook page (are we friends? I’d love to be fb friends with you) with recipe ideas and things I’m making!
- 2 (16-ounce) bags frozen broccoli florets, thawed
- 1 (10¾-ounce) can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- ½ cup Italian seasoned or plain bread crumbs
- 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the thawed broccoli florets on the sheet in three rows (or you could just scatter it onto the sheet).
- Spoon the condensed soup directly from the can over the broccoli.
- In a small saucepan over high heat, melt the butter, 3 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the bread crumbs, and stir until combined. Spoon the bread crumb mixture over the broccoli, then sprinkle the cheese on top.
- Bake the broccoli for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, serve, and enjoy.
