Roasted Cheddar Broccoli
Cheesy broccoli, topped with a crunchy bread topping. Yum!
Note: Roasted broccoli has a dry texture. If you prefer a moister broccoli, steam the broccoli, then continue with tossing in olive oil and finish in a 350° oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crumbs are crispy.
|1||large head broccoli|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|Kosher salt, to taste|
|freshly ground black pepper, to taste|
|1/2 cup||panko bread crumbs (or use 2 slices gluten-free bread made into crumbs)|
|1 cup||sharp cheddar cheese, grated|
|1 bunch||scallion, sliced|
Cut broccoli into long spears. Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil on a baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast at 450° until almost tender, 15 minutes. Toss 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko) with 1 cup grated sharp cheddar, 1 bunch sliced scallions, 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of nutmeg. Sprinkle on the broccoli and roast 15 more minutes.
