Fresh Broccoli Gratin

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by MommyOh

This is a very tasty dish I made this up last night when I couldn't find a recipe for what I wanted. I just used what I had on hand. I food-processed 3 small leftover rolls to make the bread crumbs. My husband, 21 year-old veggie-picky son, and I loved it. Tastes like gourmet-restaurant fare.

I've been looking for a b. au gratin that it isn't overly rich and decided to make this. I liked that I didn't have to cook the sauce first! This took me longer to cook (my oven rack was set on lower middle) but no matter. I used a wheat hamburger bun for the bread crumbs and they were perfect! I served this with turkey meatloaf and my dh had two helpings (he is not a cooked broccoli fan!). I liked the simplicity of the recipe and that it had a lot of flavor, without being too rich, just what I was looking for! Thanks for posting, MommyOh- Roxygirl

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam fresh broccoli to “tender-crisp”, 5-6 minutes. Spray shallow 1 1/2 qt casserole dish with cooking spray. Place steamed broccoli in casserole dish. Sprinkle Parmesan and Cheddar cheeses over evenly.
  2. In separate bowl, stir together sour cream, milk, and cornstarch until smooth. Pour over broccoli-cheese mixture.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle bread crumbs.
  5. Bake in 375-degree oven until milk mixture is thickened and crumbs are golden brown, about 20-30 minutes. Cover after 10-15 minutes if needed to prevent over-browning of crumbs.
  6. This is not rocket science! You can adjust amounts, oven temperature, and baking-time as needed.
