  • 1 ½ cups steamed broccoli florets roughly chopped
  • 1 6.5 oz container light garlic-herb spreadable cheese i.e. Boursin or Alouette
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 small sweet onion finely diced
  • 2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 8.5 oz box cornbread mix [Martha White or Jiffy]
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dry mustard
  • ¼ tsp onion powder


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a 11 x 7 inch (2 Quart) baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together, the steamed broccoli, garlic-herb cheese spread, 4 eggs, melted butter and finely diced onion until blended.
  • Add 1 cup of cheddar cheese, cornbread mix and seasonings. Stir until combined.
  • Pour into the prepared dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden and you see moist crumbs on a toothpick inserted into the center.


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.
