You can also add chopped ham with the broccoli for a main dish.
1 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 1/2 C milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste (I use less)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (freshly grated is best)
1 Tbsp. chopped parsley
3 C chopped, cooked broccoli (barely tender)
Blend the cream cheese and milk; add beaten eggs and lemon juice. Mix in salt, nutmeg and parsley. Mix well. Add chopped broccoli.
Pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake about 1 hour at 325°.
Frankly, I was kind of disappointed. Mine was watery and bland, where I was hoping for something more cheesy, eggy, bold.
However, I love the concept of this - broccoli casserole baked in a loaf pan. Maybe if I used more cream cheese and less lemon? Less milk?
I'd like to try some alterations that might work better for me.
