The taste of this broccoli deserves a 5, it is rich and wonderful!! We were a little disapointed that it didn't brown on top as I think it should have but I think that was my fault, I cooked it in too deep a dish, next time I'll use a shallow dish. Just made half a recipe, it was much more than 4 could eat. I had some Danish blue cheese I wanted to use up so I used it instead of the Roquefort; it was heavenly. Perfect side for company, with pork tenderloin and baked potatoes, thanks for sharing a tasty one!
