Finish February Strong With All Your Favorite Cheeses!

Seeing this sign outside of Di Bruno Brothers inspired me to make a meal with my favorite cheeses. Di Bruno Brothers in Philadelphia sells over 400 types of cheese from around the world.

Blue Cheese Roasted Broccoli

1 lb broccoli florets
1 cup baguette crumbs (I love whole wheat)
4 oz blue cheese
1/8 cup olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees

In a bowl mix together bread crumbs, blue cheese, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Place broccoli on a cookie sheet and drizzle olive on florets and toss to coat. Sprinkle blue cheese mixture over broccoli and roast for 25-30 minutes, turning once.

Parmesan & Garlic French Bread

If you love garlic as much as I do you will love this garlic bread recipe!

1/2 whole wheat baguette
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried basil
4 cloves garlic, mashed
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice baguette lengthwise and place on a cookie sheet.

Crush garlic and sprinkle kosher salt over garlic. Starting at one end of the pile of chopped garlic, press down with the flat side of the knife. Move the knife a little further into the pile of garlic and continue until the garlic becomes a paste.

In a small bowl combine butter or margarine, garlic, and herbs. Spread butter mixture on both pieces of baguette. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over baguette.

Close baguette and wrap in foil. Bake for 15 minutes, remove foil and bake for 5 more minutes or until butter is melted.

Slice and serve warm.
