Friedel, this is such a beautiful dish when made with red bell pepper! It is so pretty that it could easily be used to brighten up a holiday dinner table! We enjoyed this very much tonight, as I usually simply steam our broccoli. What a delightful change of pace! I used regular bread crumbs to mix with the cheese for the topping. Thank you so much, Friedel for posting this wonderful recipe!

We had this as a side dish the other night and my family really enjoyed it. The only changes I made were to add some fresh basil, oregano and thyme in the recipe. I also mixed Panko bread crumbs in with the cheese for the topping as I thought it would just be easier. I did use sweet red peppers just for the "color" factor and because that is what I had on hand. Thank you so much for posting as this is a welcome change to ordinary steamed broccoli.

This was really good! I was looking for something to make for dinner and all I had was vegetables. This hit the spot. I toasted up some garlic bread to serve with it. I must have used a little too much of the cooking water because I ended up having to bake it for 10 minutes longer than it called for. Although be careful not to bake this too long or your milk will start to break down and turn to liquid. It was still very good though.

I liked this, but my husband thought it was a little plain, needs a little zing. Maybe I'll try it again with a little cayenne pepper.

This recipe is delicious. I replaced the butter with some margarine and just sprayed the pan. I also ommited the salt and it still tasted great with the cheddar cheese. I also just used bread crumbs (2 Tbps) instead of a piece of bread. Next time I am going to double the broccoli and be sure to bake it an extra 15 minutes to get it really firm (it won't dry it out).

Excellant broccoli gratin! I used a red sweet pepper for a nice contrast, I left out the butter and used veggie spray to coat the casserole. I had a seeded dinner roll to use up, used it instead of the bread and cubed it instead of making crumbs. It actually was kind of like a veggie fritatta, we loved it and will be making it again; it could even be used as a meal by itself. thanks for posting.

Great!!!!!! I fixed this for two people that do not like broccoli and they both had seconds!! I used bread crumbs with some herbs on the top and it was wonderful!

This was pretty good, but not stellar. Some changes for next time: Bake it a little longer. Use cracker crumbs or dried bread crumbs on the top. The fresh bread crumbs did not "crust" the top very well and got soft and gooey. I like a crispier, browned crust.

Oh this was just SUPERB!! We all absolutely loved it and I will be making this again. I omitted the peppers due to an allergy though. It's super simple, yet delicious. Thanks for sharing a "keeper"!
