Anyone who hints at not enjoying broccoli would like this recipe. The vegetable combination, enhanced by cheddar cheese, makes a colorful side dish.


  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces each) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, saute the carrots, celery and onion in 3 teaspoons butter until tender. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Top with 3/4 cup cheese. In the same skillet, saute broccoli in the remaining butter for 1 minute. Place over cheese; pour broth over all.
  2. Cover and bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and vegetables are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with a slotted spoon.
