Corn and Broccoli are my 2 sons favorite vegetables, so I thought this would be the perfect dish. I have never topped a casserole with corn flakes, so this was a first for me. I didn't have broccoli spears, but the florets worked better for my 3 year old, and was still a pretty dish. I used a colby-jack cheese, and it was delicious. I can't wait to try it again with cheddar, and other cheeses as well. My 6 year old didn't care for the corn flakes, so I might make it with crushed Ritz crackers next time. But there will definately be a next time. Thanks for posting such a kid friendly casserole that adults enjoy as well!
