Veggie Day: Baked Broccoli and Grated Potato

A family of meat lovers will try to have a regular Veggie Day per week. Wish us luck!

The first recipe I tried seemed to be a success: Baked Broccoli and Grated Potato. The girls and my husband raved about it and even fought for the left-over during dinner. What a compliment :-)
