This is a recipe that I saw on Food Network and thought I'd give it a try. It is a remix of the old boring broccoli and cheese.


  1. Cut broccoli into "trees" (stalks and florets together) then cut trees in half.
  2. Put broccoli on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to tase.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until tender.
  4. Take out of oven and sprinkle parmesan cheese over top and bake again until cheese is bubbly.

I've been wanting to try this for a while, and finally did! I had a bag of fresh broccoli florets from Costco and wasn't sure they'd work - since the stems are short, but they were great. While drizzling the olive oil, I decided to toss the florets around in it and then baked it.
My husband suggests I use garlic salt next time.
Delicious! Thank you for posting it.

Delicious and simple! I was searching for something to do with broccoli, other than steaming it and this was perfect. I used fresh grated parmesan cheese and I plan on experimenting with other cheeses. Thanks so much for sharing!

This was so tasty and a much better alternative to steaming it. Thanks!
