    breezermom's Note:

    I'm submitting this because my kids and my elders love this....I tend to like my broccoli fresh and steamed! I also usually like to use crushed ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs with this, or just leave them off altogether. This recipe came to me through a school cookbook, which was a collection of recipes other people had gathered together....have no idea who Penny is! But the recipe was submitted by Laura Harms. That is all the credit I can give!!!

      When making this great tasting vegetable dish, I did make 2 insignificant changes ~ I used fresh broccoli (steamed it) & I used crushed Milton's Original Multi-Grain Crackers for the crumbs! We love broccoli so this is definitely a KEEPER of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits tag]

      We loved it. The cream cheese made it delish. I didn't put the topping on and didn't miss it at all. Made for photo tag! I'll be getting the picture posted soon.

      This is a really tasty way to make broccoli. I loved the creamy taste of the cream cheese. I think would like it even better without adding the breadcrumbs next time. Thanks for sharing.
