Broccoli Cheddar Squares

For many years, I’ve made these cheesy broccoli squares for tailgate parties, book club and other events. They’re excellent served warm or hot, but we enjoy them cold, too. —Veronica Downen, Crystal Beach, Florida

    Yum. These tasted great while still warm after standing time. I'm assuming this is finger food but mine didn't hold together well - perhaps I should have re-chopped my broccoli a bit finer. These squares taste best on same day of baking.

    I love broccoli but seriously this was WAAAAAY too much broccoli ....Saw this on All recipes and they used 2 bags of broccoli, not 3. I recommend the same.
