My mother-in-law gave me the recipe for this hearty dish 32 years ago. It was the only way I could get my husband to eat broccoli—by hiding it in the stuffing!—Sheron Hutcheson of Newark, Delaware


  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, drained and patted dry
  • 2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 package (6 ounces) reduced-sodium stuffing mix
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, cheese, stuffing mix, onion, egg, nutmeg and pepper. Gradually stir in milk and broth.
  2. Transfer to a 2-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 50-55 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Sprinkle with bacon.
