"In Clayton, Ontario, Bryan Forster needs only four ingredients to turn ordinary broccoli into a dressed-up side dish. The garlic in the broiled crumb topping really comes through.


  • 3-1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Place broccoli and a small amount of water in a microwave-and broiler-safe 1-1/2-qt. dish. Cover and microwave on high until crisp-tender, about 4-1/2 minutes; drain. Combine remaining ingredients; sprinkle over broccoli. Broil for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned.
