Broccoli Kugel

It's 5 p.m. on Friday. Shabbat starts in two hours. My 16-year-old daughter walks in from the beach, and tells me she has to take a kugel to the potluck Shabbat dinner she is having with friends. I open up my freezer to find a bag of frozen broccoli. As fast as I can, I throw together this Broccoli Kugel. Boy was I surprised when she came home and told me the kugel was the hit of the party! And if I wasn't totally convinced by my daughter's report, I was convinced on Sunday when the mother of the friend hosting the dinner called to ask me for the recipe.
