I LOVE this recipe! So, so good! One question though, can I make it a few hours ahead of baking time? Thank you for sharing!

I made this as written and everyone loved it. Only suggestion was to add more broccoli. Great for company and pot-lucks!

I enjoyed this dish and so did my family. I used gluten free cup for cup flour and the sauce thickened up nicely and crumbed up Rice Chex in the topping ( I think potato chips would work well too). I think this would even be good with some chicken in it.

I made this as a side dish for Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it, including my nephew who hates broccoli. I will definitely be making this again.
