Servings: 6

Author: Julia Child


  • 1 1/2 tablespoons, butter
  • 1 1/2 quarts, broccoli – cut into medium florets
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons, melted butter



Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Smear the butter inside a 2 quart, fireproof casserole big enough to hold broccoli in 1 or 2 layers

Arrange broccoli in the baking dish and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, top with melted butter

Lay a round of partially buttered parchment over the broccoli. Cover and heat on top of stove set at medium-high until broccoli begins to sizzle

Remove from stove and place in middle level of preheated oven

Bake for 20 minutes or until the florets are tender.
