Broccoli Cornbread Bake Recipe:

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread, as it is called in my Major Hospital Cook Book, is going to be my go-to holiday contribution to side dishes.

This recipe makes a large 13 x 9-inch pan that feeds a crowd, is easy to make, and everyone loves it. Did I mention how easy it is to prepare? All you need is one large bowl to mix everything together in, and you don’t even have to thaw the frozen, chopped broccoli.

The shortcut ingredient is a box of Jiffy cornbread mix. All the other ingredients are just enhancing the cornbread base. The cheesiness in this actually comes from a double hit of cheese with both cottage cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.

Another surprise ingredient is that this is a broccoli cornbread recipe with cottage cheese.  This gives it a cheesy, moist texture that’s a homerun with everyone who eats its.
