Roasted Broccoli

2 heads broccoli
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. terragon leaves, crushed
1 tsp. paprika
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut broccoli off the stalk.  Melt butter in a medium size bowl.  In a large bowl mix Panko, cheese, terragon, paprika, salt and pepper.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Dip broccoli in melted butter, into Panko mixture and then on to the baking sheet.  Continue until all broccoli has been coated.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until broccoli is done to your own taste.

Comments:  This recipe came from a 1983 cookbook that actually called for cauliflower and was cooked in the microwave.  I decided to use the broccoli instead and bake it in the oven so it would come out with a slight crisp.  This dish is really good.  Be careful with the addition of salt since the Parmesan is already a little salty so taste the crumbs before adding salt.  These are even good cold!
