Broccoli au gratin recipe by of 04-12-2012 [Updated on 10-04-2015]
Broccoli au gratin is a tasty side dish that you can prepare to make broccoli appreciate even to those who are a little reluctant to eat vegetables, instead of dressing them with the usual bechamel I opted for a mixture of milk, eggs and parmesan and I covered everything with some sweet cheese cut into julienne strips. The broccoli au gratin turned out to be lighter and with a decidedly more delicate flavor, perfect for being able to combine them with a second course of both meat and fish and my husband also really liked them, so mission accomplished. Try them and let me know :)
