I usually make this minus the Creole seasoning, but a few weeks ago, I decided to try adding a different spice just to see what would happen. I loved it! It's garlicy, spicy and crunchy! —Krista Frank, Krista Frank, Rhododendron, Oregon

"This recipe is great. My family loves roasted broccoli, so instead of doing these in a skillet we roast them in the oven. These are always a hit!"

"I loved this! I wasn't sure about the seasoning at first but it really adds a nice flavorful zip. I'm going to try it on other vegetables as well next."
