Reviewed Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli

Aug 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is an incredibly easy and delicious side dish. Roasting a somewhat boring vegetable like broccoli changes the flavor completely. The parmesan takes it to a new level and makes it quite savory. This recipe is definitely worth a try if you looking for new ways to prepare broccoli. ""

This makes an impressive side dish for Christmas, Easter, or just a nice Sunday dinner, but it's very easy. I only blanch my beans for 30 seconds until bright green. I find that I need to bake the bundles a little longer for the bacon to get to my preferred doneness, and 3 mins of blanching is too much. Maybe I just need a thinner cut of bacon...

Delicious, hardy, and satisfying! I always use the cheaper cube steak and it comes out perfectly tender. I also use beef stock instead of water and throw in some sliced crimini or button mushrooms. You'll definately want some biscuits or rolls on hand with this dish because the gravy is "out of this world." A great Sunday dinner recipe!""

A delicious and easy dessert! I've used peaches a number of times too and it always comes out beautifully. I do add a little corn starch mixed with water to the fruit to make it nice and thick.

Another outstanding recipe from Mrs. Garten! Splurge and buy the really good cheeses. It makes a huge difference. This is a Christmas and Easter staple, or any time you want an impressive side dish. It's also one of those dishes you can make a day or two in advance and bake before dinner. It does feed quite a few people, so if you're cooking...

Outstanding! I've been making (and eating) cobbler-type desserts for many years and this is one of the best. The directions make a lot of crumble topping. Use a thinner layer of crumble topping to prevent the underside of the crumble from being mushy and undercooked. Also, I added a little cornstarch mixed with water to the filling to make it...
