Talking Fresh Broccoli Bake

Fresh Broccoli Bake

You can also add chopped ham with the broccoli for a main dish.

Ingredients:
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)

Directions:
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.

You beat me to it, Constance. MMMMMMMmmmm Broccoli! Yes! I'll need something healthy to balance the menu after eating your Twisted Brownies as a first course. A new memeber for my broccoli files. TY, pds.

Texas, you and I must be veggie-mates, I just adore broccoli too! (DH won't go near it, but that just means more for me! )

Awesome looking recipe Pdswife, thank-you for sharing this yummy looking dish (I wonder if I could do it with low fat cream cheese and skim milk?)

Thank-you so much Pdswife That really means a lot to me.

Right on, I just need to grab some more broccoli (finished it up in a soup) and I'm all good to go

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.

pdswife,

No need for you to be sorry!

I hope it's okay that we post "less than great" reviews of recipes posted here, when we encounter disappointments.

I think trading pros, cons, and suggestions for improvements increase the learning experiences for all of us, as well as lending credibility to this forum.

Post away.

I have some in the oven now and it's thickening up nicely.
I only had about two cups of veggies... mixed broc and Kellyflower ( as friends son used to call it) and only used one cup of milk.

I have a question: if the broccoli is going to bake for an hour in the oven, do you really need to pre-cook it?

That's a good question. I made this last night ( I've had it before , made by a friend) but never cooked it myself. It tastes really good and for me it thickened up.

The veggies were very soft. Paul likes them that was so it was fine.
I like them a little harder though so... next time I'll try it with out pre cooking the veggies. I'll let ya know Constance.

I was thinking the same thing, I think for people (like me) who prefer the veggies not too soft, precooking wouldn't be necessary. I also suggest, if there is a problem with too much liquid, how about some grated lemon zest instead of juice?

Anyhow this recipe looks really good Trish, I would love to try that next time we get some broccoli!! I would also think this recipe may work well with brussel sprouts!!
