- Blanch the broccoli just two minutes minutes in boiling salted water, then drain well.
- Mix together grated Swiss cheese, mayo, lemon juice, Dijon, and finely chopped green onion to make the cheese topping.
- Put drained broccoli in a low-sided glass or crockery casserole dish, then spread the cheese topping over the top.
- Sprinkle the finely grated parmesan over the top.
- Bake about 30 minutes, or a little longer if you like it well-browned like I do. Serve hot.
- I hope this will become a Thanksgiving tradition in your family like it is for mine!
