Made this for my picky husband (who literally gags at the smell or taste of broccoli) and he loved it. His exact word: "INCREDIBLE." Every time I make this for company, my friends ask for the recipe. They can't believe how their kids gobble up broccoli (and onions too).

I made this from the Allrecipes magazine and the kids liked it a lot. A solid kid-friendly side dish but not what I'd make for myself. That said it was easy, loved by the kids and wasn't time consuming so that's a win. I'm sure I'll make it again.

Couldn't stop eating it. My husband put a little syrup on top. Our grandson ate one big piece. He loved. I used one 14 oz. box of cornbread mix (that's what I had). It worked out fine.

I omitted the cheese on top the second time around, but either way you do it the finished product is great. My husband never ate broccoli until now.
