Broccoli Cheese Bake Recipe
Broccoli Cheese Bake is a deliciously creamy and cheesy dish perfect for a family dinner or get together.
We have been making this easy Broccoli Cheese Bake for several years now. This easy recipe is so popular in our extended family, that we get requests to make this puff pastry topped broccoli cheese bake every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
You can make this bake as a side or vegetarian dish, or add cooked meat. Adding small pieces of Canadian bacon or chicken breast will also turn this bake into a delicious main dish. We have substituted cauliflower for the broccoli before and it turned out excellent as well. This is a very versatile dish!
