    Scoutie's Note:

    A great and delicious way to get more veggies onto the table without anyone noticing LOL ! I think this would be great with others veggies too, like carrots or cauliflower. You can also add some milk or cream if it looks too dry. This is from Rachel Ray, I serve these with her pork cutlets which I have also posted. Hope you enjoy!

      I guess this side dish didn't wow us as it did the others who reviewed this recipe. My husband and I thought it was ok! While one reviewer stated they couldn't taste the broccoli, I on the other hand could. I did not add a cup of whole milk, as I thought it would of made this dish quite soupy. I just added 4 tablespoons of heavy cream, but perhaps 3 tablespoons would of been enough. I also used 2 cups of the shredded cheese, to give this dish more cheese flavor. I added 1-3/4 cups to mash in, then topped the side dish with the remaining 1/4 cup. I found this dish definitely needed salt to give it more flavor.

      I do agree that this is a great way to sneak veggies into a meal, especially for my husband who hates broccoli, but I love broccoli and I just couldn't taste it in this dish at all. To me just regular mashed creamed potatoes. Substantial though.
