I love veggies and it drives me crazy for eric to only eat the top 1/3 of a broccoli stock. I got so tired of throwing that 1/3 away that I decided to try making something with just the bottom third of the broccoli. This is what I came up with
Cut the ptoatoes into 4ths and remove skins and put in a pan of water. Cut any bottom from the broccoli that is tough and cut the stalks in half and add to the pot. Bring to a boil and continue until the potatoes are cooked. drain and set aside to cool slightly.
In a small fry pan caramelize onions in 1 tablespoon butteradd garlic the last half of cooking.
Cut the potatoes into small chunks and the broccoli into slices. Put in a mixing bowl and run a sharp knife throw it a few times to break up a little. Add the onion mixture. add the sour cream and cheese and mix well and put into a oblong baking dish. Dot with butter.
Bake on 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes and bubbly. remove from stove and serve.
