This was something my kids (4 and 2) just loved so much at the restaurant that they gobbled up the whole dish. I did get to try a few bites and figured it was easy enough to try at home. It is very simple and if you can't find Myzithra cheese (it's a Greek goat or sheep cheese) I guess you could sub with Parmesan. The amounts are approximate, please adjust to your taste or amount of broccoli being used! For the butter you can always throw in another chunk to melt if it doesn't look like it's enough for your broccoli. Same with the cheese. If you use unsalted butter you can throw in a tiny pinch of salt. Please use real butter for best results!
