BROCCOLI CHEESE CORNBREAD
 
Author: Melissa Sperka
Serves: 12 pieces
INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ cups steamed broccoli florets, roughly chopped
  • 1 container [6.5 oz] light garlic-herb cheese spread [I used Alouette]
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 stick [1/2 cup] butter, melted
  • 1 small sweet onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 box [7.5 or 8.5 oz] cornbread mix [Martha White or Jiffy]
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
 
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a 7 x 11 inch baking dish, then set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together, the steamed broccoli, garlic-herb cheese spread, 4 eggs, melted butter and finely diced onion until blended.
  3. Add 1 cup of cheddar cheese, cornbread mix and seasonings. Stir until combined.
  4. Pour into the prepared dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  5. Place into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and you see moist crumbs on a toothpick inserted into the center.
 
NOTES
If you'd like to spice up the flavor, add 1-2 tsp. creole seasoning and a sprinkle of cayenne in place of the garlic and onion powder. You can also add 6-8 oz. cubed ham or cooked spicy sausage for a twist.
