The Broccoli Bake

My daughter Erin joins me in the kitchen to prepare a one-dish meal featuring 'miniature trees', ground sirloin and gooey cheese.  A great way to get lots of broccoli into your diet.


3-4 bunches of broccoli cut into florets, or about 10-12 cups

1 1/2 lbs. lean ground sirloin

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup hot chili oil

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3 cups grated Mozzarella cheese

      The Recipe

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place broccoli in a large glass bowl, add about 1/4 cup water, partially cover and microwave 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender.  Meanwhile, cook ground sirloin in a little olive oil until browned.

Drain broccoli and place in a large roasting pan.  Toss with olive oil and chili oil.  Spread cooked meat on top.  Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese on top of the meat.  Bake 5 - 7 minutes, or until cheese is melted and lightly browned.  Enough for 8 - 10 servings.
