I would be willing to bet that I whip a version of this super simple side dish at least twice a month. It is Ben and my favorite vegetable side dish. It is my easy, go to, vegetable side dish for any occasion. I change up the cheeses, depending on what I have on hand. But the cream cheese and S & P remain as constants in the dish. To make it a meal you could add cubed ham and serve over pasta, rice, or a baked potato.
Easy Cheesy Broccoli Side
-4 oz. cream cheese
- ¼ c. fresh parmesan (shaved, grated, or shredded)
-4 Tbsp. Peppercorn Parmesan Cheese Spread
-S & P (~1 tsp. each)
Microwave plain raw broccoli on high for 5 to 6 minutes. Add all cheese and S & P. Right before dinner is served, return broccoli and other ingredients to microwave for one more minute. Stir and serve immediately.
