    A great and simple way to do broccoli that is a little out of the ordinary. Very good with roasts.

      Excellent! Bright green broccoli topped with butter browned bread crumbs flavored with lemon zest and garlic. The best broccoli dish I have ever tasted! I cheated and microwaved 16 oz of frozen broccoli flowerets and added 1 tbls butter, salt and fresh ground pepper before adding the topping. Next time I will double the garlic. You could also add a few red pepper flakes to the butter before adding the bread crumbs. So simple yet so delicious. Goes into my book of special tricks!
