I should have called this Broccoli-Cheddar Cake because it is so tender, moist, fine crumbed and cakelike but bread it is. :-)
This would be great topped with a Cheddar cheese sauce, a mushroom sauce, creamed tuna or chicken sauce, topped taco meat and a nacho cheese sauce. I bet split and topped with a soft cooked egg and Hollandaise sauce would be amazing.
But you don't need to go to the fuss of making a special sauce, jJust warm up a slice and spread it with softened butter for an out this world experience! You can really taste the cheese when it is warmed up a little.
