Ingredient Notes

You could also make this recipe with frozen broccoli. Costco sells frozen broccoli in large bags that are perfect for a quick and easy side dish.

If you use frozen broccoli you will not need to steam the broccoli before you prepare this dish. Frozen broccoli is already lightly cooked. When using frozen broccoli, pour out the amount you will need onto a paper towel, and let the ice melt so the excess water can drain off the frozen broccoli before you put it onto the sheet pan.

You can use any seasoning of your choice instead of the garlic powder.

How to Bake Broccoli and Cheese

  1. Steam broccoli lightly but not cooked through.

  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Steam broccoli lightly by placing it in a large bowl with a couple of tablespoons of water.  Microwave for about 4 minutes. OR you can steam with your Instant Pot for about 2 minutes. The broccoli does not need to have cooked all of the way through.

    Quick and easy to make! My family loved this way to make broccoli. We sprinkled on some Cayenne pepper for a little spice.
