Broccoli Cornbread Squares


  • 1 (10-oz.) package frozen, chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 medium yellow onion , peeled and chopped
  • 3 large eggs , lightly beaten
  • 1 cup small-curd cottage cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (8.5-oz.) package corn muffin mix (like Jiffy)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray an 9x9-inch square baking dish.
  • Prepare the broccoli according to the manufacturer's directions. (I use the microwavable steaming packages.) Drain and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, cottage cheese and salt until well blended. Stir in the muffin mix, onions and broccoli. Mix until just combined.
  • Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until cooked through and golden. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm.
