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.

This is just crazy good cornbread, I used Jiffy corn muffin mix, which is already really good, and cut the recipe in half. I made it to get my 2-year-old to eat vegetables. I chopped the broccoli and onion really fine to hide them. He liked it, but I was not expecting to love it myself! The cheese, when lightly browned, makes a nice crispy crust on top. Yum!

I have been making a version of this bread for years. I just wanted to say that I discovered by accident that I had left the butter out once and about 5 minutes after it had been cooking I just added a stick of butter on top and let it finish cooking.(I don't use cheese on top) OMG! I will never make it a different way because this gives the best crispy crust that everyone loved. It really takes it up a notch!
