Broccoli Polonaise

Broccoli Polonaise by Carole's Chatter
As part of my seemingly never ending quest to make broccoli more interesting I tried doing it with a Polonaise sauce.  It was reasonably simple to make and did end up looking quite pretty so I'll probably do it again.
All that was involved was:
Lightly cook your broccoli – leaving quite a lot of the stem on
Hard boil link  some eggs – scoop the yolk out (reserve the whites for another use), and chop the yolk up.
Add salt, white pepper, and chopped parsley (keeping some aside for last minute garnish)
Sautee some breadcrumbs in butter.
Scatter your egg mix over the broccoli and pour over the breadcrumbs/butter.


  1. That sounds interesting! I like to roast my broccoli in the oven so the florets get a little crispy!

  2. Hello. I'm a new reader from Girl with Her Head in a book. This recipe sounds great! What is a polonaise sauce? I've never heard of such a thing. Is it specifically a British thing? Just looking at it, it looks similar to hollandaise sauce.

    1. Thanks for your visit. I think this is more of a French/Polish approach than British. It is quite different from Hollandaise because the egg is hard boiled and chopped before being added to the sauce. Cheers

  3. Polonaise sauce is quite interesting, would love to try this at my home.

  4. Good luck on your quest! I love the combination of broccoli and egg, only to be improved upon with the addition of cheese!

  5. I've not had this combination. I love steamed, raw, and roasted broccoli!

  6. I love broccoli in almost any permutation, but my favorite has to be with butter and a little bit of bacon. I'll have to try this. Thanks!

  7. It does look quite pretty. I have never heard of Polonaise sauce. I always learn something nice when I visit you Carole. Thanks!

  8. I think I will like your Polonaise sauce more than hollandaise. I'm kind of weird about undercooked/raw egg! Buttery breadcrumbs sound good too.
    Thank you for stopping by, Carole.

  9. First I've ever heard of Pollonasie - count me in!
