Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cut the broccoli florets into bite sized pieces. Cut the stalk into 1/8-inch thick, round slices. Place the broccoli into a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil, garlic, kosher salt, and pepper and set aside.
  • Beat the eggs together and set aside.
  • Spread the panko into a cookie sheet and place into the oven for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Set the timer so you don't burn them!
  • Remove the panko from the oven. Dip each floret in the egg wash, then in the breadcrumbs, and place on a cookie sheet. Place in the oven on the center rack and roast until the broccoli is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
