Baked Broccoli

I'm always looking for new ways to eat vegetables since Bryce and Justin both STRUGGLE with eating them! This was just the ticket. The broccoli was perfectly cooked...not to crisp but not too soggy - perfection. The flavor is just so awesome. Trust me...just try it!

2 heads broccoli
3 T olive oil
1 t dried oregano
1/2 t dried garlic powder or 1 t fresh minced garlic
15 whole Ritz crackers
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut broccoli into florets and rinse. Place crackers in a Ziploc bag and crush. Add the oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese to the bag. Mix around. Add the broccoli and the olive oil to the bag also. Mix around until the broccoli is evenly coated. Place in a baking dish or cookie sheet. Put in the oven for about 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through. If the broccoli is still too firm for your taste, keep in oven in 5 minutes increments until your preferred crispness is reached. Enjoy!

  1. All of your cooking makes me drool!! I love it! We've made the eclair cake a few times, and now all of my family is hooked on it and they've made it several times...not to mention a bunch of the other recipes! So talented ;)
