Anytime I make anything with broccoli I secretly sing Choppin Broccoli from the SNL skit by Dana Carvey in my head. It’s just one of those things that got embedded in my brain as a teen and may never leave. I may be singing it more often because this recipe was so easy that I will be making it again and again. You could easily substitute any vegetable or cheese in this simple recipe, I believe that there was something like this called impossible pie on the Bisquick box back in the day, again more childhood memories.
Easy Broccoli Cheese Pie
2 cups fresh Broccoli and/or Broccoli Slaw (this is a great recipe to use up whatever veggies are left in the fridge)
1/2 c chopped onion
1 T minced garlic
1 T oil
1 1/2 c shredded cheese, I used Smoked Gruyere and cheddar
1/2 c Bisquick
1 cup milk
1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
Preheat oven to 400. Add oil to a med/large sauté pan and heat over med high. Add broccoli and onion sauté for 4 minutes or until onion and broccoli are soft but not falling apart, add garlic, stir and heat 1 more minute.
Bake for about 35 minute or until golden brown and set. add remaining cheese to the top and return to oven, cook for about 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Let cool 5-10 minutes before cutting.
And just in case you don’t have the ear worm yet, here is Dana Carvey performing Choppin Broccoli with an orchestra on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Your Welcome.
