Reviews for Pearl Onion Broccoli Bake
"This was a nice side dish served with the stuffed pork tenderloin from the same issue."
"The best ever!!!"
"I adore broccoli casserole, but I didn't care for this at all. The sauce was good when I tasted it before cooking it in the casserole, but the flavors just mixed together and it was rather bland."
"I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! I will definitely make it again."
"I'm not stuck on the onions, but I will try this recipe with broccoli and caulifour and see how that turns out"
"This is an excellent recipe. It tastes so good, made as it is. This recipe is a keeper and we'll be making it many more times."
"This is a good one to take to a party."
"Geez,If it doesn't sound good to you,click on another one. It's a holiday recipe,so enjoy it,we did."
"Deetsgooch, Where does it say it is healthy? I can't find that anywhere."
"I would never make this recipe for a "healthy" meal! What part of 4oz butter, 4oz cheddar cheese & 6oz cream cheese is healthy? It's bad enough that you have to click on another link to find the "healthy makeover" for the other recipes, this one didn't even have a link to a "makeover". Of course we can all substitute low fat cheeses & use skim milk & greatly reduce the butter, but please don't try & pass this off as healthy."
