Toss together broccoli and olive oil, and season with 1/2 tsp. salt; spread on prepared baking sheet. Roast 15 to 18 minutes, or until crispy.

Meanwhile, melt butter in medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add breadcrumbs and season with a little salt, if desired, stirring well to coat breadcrumbs with oil.

Yum! I made this recipe for a family dinner and everyone was going back for seconds. We ran out before everyone got their fill. It's that good. I did use dried bread crumbs because I didn't want to make fresh bread crumbs for the first time for company, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Will definitely be making this again.

Yummy! I roasted the broccoli until it still had a wee bit of crunch left. We love roasted veggies and this crumb mixture is a perfect topper! I used a whole wheat grainy bread which added to the crunch. This will see many repeats. Thank you for sharing VegGirl!
