Cheesy Broccoli Bake

Scott made this dish, and truthfully, I didn't pay much attention to it. I know he substituted bread crumbs for the Kix, which may have been while I didn't like it so much. I thought it was overly bland. It's a side dish, through and through. I would've given it 2.5/5. Not sure if I would make it again. Adapated from Pillsbury Fast & Healthy Cookbook.

Cheesy Broccoli Bake
Total Time: 30 Minutes
Serves 6

  • 1 cup Kix Cereal
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 cups frozen broccoli florets

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups fat free milk
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin. In small bowl, mix cereal and olive oil; set aside. In 1 1/2 quart casserole, place broccoli; cover and microwave on High 3 minutes. Drain; set aside.

Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat butter until melted. Stir in flour, salt, mustard and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with wire whisk, until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in cheese until melted. Pour sauce over broccoli in casserole. Sprinkle with cereal mixture.
