Broccoli Bread is a fabulous cornbread recipe that’s moist and delicious. It’s a great side dish for any kind of soup or main dish meal. There are only a handful of ingredients making it rather easy to make, too. It has a nice texture with a little sweetness from the corn muffin mix, a little crunch and texture from the broccoli and cottage cheese, and a light souffle-type texture making it succulent and delectable.
I’ve had three people give me their version of this recipe. I looked at all three when I made this recipe the other day. Actually, I adapted all three of them to fit our tastes. This is a mouthwatering melt-in-your mouth cornbread that’s great to serve for company. It’s also terrific with any kind of soups, chowders, or other comfort food. Quite frankly, I think Broccoli Bread is comfort food!
I first made this recipe back in July of 2012 shortly after I began my blog. I didn’t have a good camera or take particularly good pictures back then.
I recently made another batch of Broccoli Bread and freshened up the pictures. I made it as a side for a soup I was making for friends who recently had a new baby. The nice thing about Broccoli Bread is it not only has a superior taste but transports very well, too.
