Barabra, I just this minute took this recipe out of the oven and wanted to come right away to let you know just how wonderful this broccoli is! It is so rich and cheesey and delicious! The broccoli is just the right texture balanced with the right amount of cheese! I followed your directions to the letter for excellent results! I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you, Barbara, for a great new recipe that I know I will be using time and time again in this house of broccoli lovers!

I have been making these with spinach(2 boxes of chopped spinach) for years. I only use 1 8oz block of cheddar cheese and then add about 1/4c of parmesan cheese. I like the flavor of the squares with the broccoli much better. My 3 year old will eat them either way. I usually cut the leftovers into squares and freeze them.

This wasn't bad, but it wasn't a square for me. It fell apart as I was taking it out from the pan and looked a little sad on the platter, laying in chunks like that. It tasted fine but I think I would put it in a smaller pan so that it was thicker and more square-like. I followed the recipe to a 't', but it just didn't work.

This came out wonderful. I dotted the top with butter before I baked it, and baked it until it was evenly browned on the top. This is just the right balance of bread/cheese "matrix' and broccoli - not overly bready and not overly vegetable-y. I will save this and make again!

I changed some things: didn't use the butter because I lined the pan with baking paper, used approx. 2/3 onion because they needed to be used up, used fresh broccoli, didn't have seasoning salt so I sprinkled some dried basil and parsley. It was great! Thank you!

This has a great taste--nice combination of broccoli and cheese. Used sharp cheddar. Easy to put together, and I'll make again. Thanks for sharing.

I made this for my 6y/o dd this morning. She said they were good but didn't seem real impressed with them. I thought they tasted good but would have been better if I'd had cheddar. I used velveeta so I think next time cheddar will be better!

This was pretty good. I'm not a broccoli eater but even I liked it. DD (5) gobbled it up and did not give me any grief about eating it but DS thought it smelled "bad" but thought it tasted good... go figure. DH went back for a big piece of seconds. I told my kids it was called "Surprise Delight" because if I told them the real name they wouldn't have touched it. I halved the recipe and sprinkled Morton's "Nature's Seasons" in the egg mixture as well as on top. I'd like to try adding crumbled bacon next time. Thanks for a good recipe... this one is a keeper. UPDATE: Made this again last night after my son requested it. Both my almost 8 y.o daughter and 11 year old son had seconds. I used a blend of Jack and Cheddar cheeses and added seasoning salt (omitting the 1 tsp of salt called for in the recipe). I topped with french fried onions. Definite keeper!
