Topsy Turvy Brocollini Bake (Everyday w/ Rachel Ray)



Made this and it is UBER delicious. Serves 4 and takes about 10-15 min to prep; 30 to cook. Also we used Italian Cheese, regular bread, and regular milk instead of the swiss cheese, english muffins, and half-n-half.

From Rachel Ray's Everyday Living Magazine, the recipe can be found here.

Using mild-flavored broccolini introduces kids to other stronger-tasting vegetables.

3 tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for greasing

Please Picky Eaters
Broccolini inside the eggs not gonna fly? Serve them on the side (cook them for a total of 7 minutes in Step 3, and bake the eggs for only 15 minutes in Step 4).


  1. Get the ingredients ready. Tear up the english muffins into crumb-size bits. Trim the broccolini and cut into 1/2-inch pieces; chop the shallot. Shred the swiss cheese. In a large liquid measure, beat together the eggs and half-and-half. Clean up your workspace.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a large skillet, melt 2 tbsp. butter over medium heat. Add the english muffin crumbs and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate. Wipe out the skillet and reserve. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking dish.
  3. In the reserved skillet, melt the remaining 1 tbsp. butter over medium heat. Add the shallot, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the broccolini and cook for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup water, increase the heat to medium-high and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the water is evaporated and the broccolini is crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup swiss cheese. Pour the egg mixture on top of the broccolini mixture.
  4. In a small bowl, toss together the toasted crumbs and the remaining swiss cheese. Sprinkle onto the casserole, then top with the parmesan. Bake in the center of the oven until the eggs are set and the top is browned, about 30 minutes.
  5. Time to clean up and set the table!
