Heirloom broccoli puff

We like heads of heirloom broccoli prepared in many different ways.  We steam it and add a little butter.  We steam it and serve with dill sauce or with a green sauce made with leeks.  We make a cream of broccoli soup.  We put it in casseroles with chicken.   We grow the heirloom variety, green sprouting broccoli and freeze  it for winter.

 

Here is a recipie for Broccoli Puff, made with eggs, cream and cheese.

1 head broccoli

1 small onion

2 eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream (raw preferred)

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 cup whole grain bread cubes

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Set your oven to 350°.

Cut the broccoli and steam it until it is tender.  This will be about 8 minutes.  Allow it to cool somewhat.  Put eggs, onions, and cream into the blender. Puree. Add the broccoli and puree again.  Put the bread cubes, cheese, pepper, and nutmeg into a medium sized bowl.  Add the puree and stir.  Pour into an 8 inch square baking pan that has been buttered.  Bake for 30-40 minutes.  This will make 4-6 servings.
