    Serves: 4 

    • 450g broccoli, cut into florets
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 4 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
    • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 hard boiled egg, finely chopped

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover and bring the water to the boil over high heat. Add the broccoli, cover and steam until just tender, 2 to 6 minutes depending on thickness. Drain broccoli and place into a serving dish.
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir in breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Cook until the breadcrumbs are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the browned breadcrumbs on top of the steamed broccoli and toss gently. Sprinkle chopped hard boiled egg on top.

    Made the Broccoli Polanaise today. Thought it was a quick, easy side dish to make. Used Italian bread crumbs and real butter - made it very rich. Would make again.  -  19 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I enjoyed this. It does need some seasoning so i added a spicy salt blend. I also dry toated some panko crumbs instead of using the butter and added some light butter to the dish afterwards.  -  19 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
