Broccoli Potato Gratin |

If there is something that I never liked in my childhood but I do love to eat now, the first one is broccoli and the second one is spinach. Around my 20s when I lived in Berlin I discovered how tasty green vegetables are, especially with cheese, with a lot of cheese.

This recipe today is very simple and you can pre-cook the veggies (do step 1 and 2 below) and just put the meal in the oven 30 minutes before you want to serve it. 

Let’s start cooking <3

What do you do with the eggs and the garlic, and at what temperature should be the oven? Thanks

thanks for you comment, Dave! Sorry for responding so late. Maybe there is an error in the translation of the recipe. I will check and adjust.

I see you have corrected the recipe. Thank you, Milena. it makes more sense now! I will definitely give it a try. I like finding recipes that use Eggs and Cream. instead of a ”White Sauce” [I read that the translation from Italian(?) is “Glue Sauce”!]
