If there is one truth that I know in my life, it is that cheese makes everything better. That’s just fact. So, naturally, as a way to get people to eat more broccoli, since it’s so good for you, the broccoli and cheddar combination was born. And what a pair they make. The sharp flavor of cheddar overwhelms that healthy taste of broccoli, and creates a delicious combination that will make your taste buds demanding an encore. That combination goes so much deeper than just the standard broccoli in cheese sauce. The two have banded together and integrated themselves into a myriad of delightful dishes.
From breakfast, lunch, to dinner, you can have broccoli and cheddar all day long if you want to! Take a look at these 14 recipes, and then go get your chedoli on. Yes…I did just do a Branjelina with the words cheddar and broccoli. That is how strongly I feel about the pair. Just go with it.
This combines all things yummy – it’s a pie (of sorts), eggs, cheese, and broccoli? Perfecto!
2. Baked Pasta
Pasta is perhaps the best way to combine goods that you want to get more of. Want more veggies? Make some pasta. Want more of a certain type of meat? Make some pasta. Broccoli and cheddar? Make some pasta
3. Twice Baked Potato
I’m always torn about twice-baked potatoes. They’re so delicious, and that crispy base and the fluffy warm topping is such a delicious delight, but they’re so much more work then just a baked potato. Does the taste pay off? Absolutely. I just wish that baking potatoes didn’t take so darn long.
I love food that you can eat with your hands! Honestly, I would never of thought to add broccoli and cheddar to a burrito, but now I seriously want to try it.

Huh. You know, I never thought to add veggies to my grilled cheese. Since broccoli and cheddar go so well together, this would be a real hit!

I adore these stuffed pastry recipes. You cut into it, and the hot gooey filling oozes out, filling the air with its savory scent. Yum!
