This was really good! I used almond milk instead of regular milk. I also melted some butter and stirred in some bread crumbs then added it to the mixture while it was in the crock pot. I served it over baked potatoes and it tasted delicious! We will definitely be making this again. :)
I was so glad to find a broccoli recipe that could cook for a long time. I made it for thanksgiving, and so it was easy to transport and then heat up at our gathering. I was afraid that the broccoli would get soggy, so i made sure to use fresh veggies, not frozen. Also, I didnt cook it for too long in the sauce pan. i think i used too many veggies, b/c there didnt seem to be enough sauce. But, the sauce that I did have was yummy.
