If you read my blog you know I love roasting everything. After several sunny days we are back to cloudy and cold weather so I decided to roast some broccoli to go with the Roast Beef with Basil, Oregano and Garlic. I found a delicious looking recipe from Alton Brownand decided to give it a try – I am so glad I did. This is my new favorite way to make broccoli. My husband, son and I loved it and even my sometimes picky daughter said she “liked it but didn’t love it”. It’s so quick and simple to make and tastes fantastic!Oven Roasted Broccoli: Adapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Alton Brown

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spread the panko into a baking dish and place in the oven for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven and pour bread crumbs into a bowl.
Place the broccoli into a bowl and toss together with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper then toss to combine.
