Quick & Cheesy Broccoli Melts
Tender garlicky broccoli piled atop toasty bread and broiled under a good sprinkle of cheese. These melts are nutritious, delicious and budget-friendly!
- 4 slices seedy bread
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tsp mayonnaise
- 2 cups broccoli crown and stalks, chopped small
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup shredded cheese (white cheddar, provolone, etc.)
- chili flakes, salt + pepper
Broccoli: add chopped broccoli and a splash of water to a saute pan over medium heat. Cover and allow to steam 3-4 minutes. Remove lid, add garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cook uncovered for another 2-3 minutes until broccoli is bright green and tender.
Melts: meanwhile, toast the bread on both sides. Mix together the mayonnaise and mustard and spread evenly on each piece of toast. Pile a quarter of the broccoli mixture onto each slice and top with ¼ cup shredded cheese.
Sprinkle on some extra chili flakes and broil under high heat for 3-5 minutes, until the cheese is brown and bubbly. Enjoy!
